Party is a great way of unwinding. But, is it the same with organising a party for kids? It is a great challenge to organize a party that kids will love. Starting from the theme, party decorations, food, drink, gifts and more, you need to get everything ready. You should identify the right theme based on the occasion. A party for kids needs to be colorful and bright. It could be a birthday party, or a preschool party, little ones love the splash of colors everywhere. There are plenty of do it yourself party ideas that can keep the kids enthused. Throwing a super special party that can keep the kids on their foot is an art and there are several layers and ingredients to a successful party.
The gruelling task of organising a party starts off with sending out party invitations. You can create invitations based on the party theme. A Peppa pig theme can have cute cut outs of Peppa pig on the invitation. Ensure you send out the invites at least six weeks before the party so the guests can plan and schedule their time accordingly.
When you are having a theme, it reflects in every single thing in a party. Starting from the invitation to the thank you gifts, all ideas will revolve around the theme. Choose a theme that is doable and suits the occasion. Pick all party essentials like tablecloths, napkins, cups plates based on the theme. It will be fun to have Peppa pig cups and tableware. George and Peppa together can add plenty of colours to the party. The party cups can have cute pig snout stickers on the bottom of the cups. A pink plain paper cup with snouts will look like Peppa’s snout.
Serve food in crafty, themed boxes. This will up the mood and it is a great way to serve food in a party for kids. You can use plain white chart papers and have the theme design printed on them. These are clever ideas that can attract kids. Party decorations need to suit the occasion. If it is a birthday party, you need to have wishes and blessings around. Party decorations can make the venue lovely and it is fun to engage the kids in the activity. The balloons can add a lot of colours to the venue. Have the theme heavily imprinted on the balloons. Giant balloons and pom poms can turn any party into fun. Have plenty of pink, blue and green pom poms and party masks with printable arms and legs. Many of these can be made at home.
Party decorations can also be outsourced to event management companies which is an easier option provided you have the budget. Food is another important aspect of a party. Throw an extra special buffet for the occasion. Have chocolates, ice creams, cakes and milkshakes in plenty because you may exhaust these items pretty soon.
There needs to be some activities to keep the kids occupied and entertained in a party. The activities can be games with rewards that can help bring a team and competitive spirit. There are a few popular party games that interest everybody. Let us take a look at these interesting games.
Passing the parcel: This is a classic party game that can keep the kids wanting for more. Have a themed wrapping paper around a gift. The gift can reflect the theme as well. It can be a coloring set, clay moulds and fun games. Let the kids pass the parcel around in accompaniment of peppy music. When the music stops, the kid with the parcel will have to leave the game. The final player will get the gift inside the parcel.
Musical puddles: This is an interesting variation from the famous musical chair. The rules and regulations are exactly like the musical chair, the only difference being that you use muddy puddles instead of chairs. You can create puddles by using printable muddy puddles instead of a real one. When the music stops, the kids must stand on the puddle. Kids who are not standing on the puddle are out of the game. It can be really interesting for parties as you can make the kids run around the puddle. Be careful to keep the kids from falling or clashing into each other.
Treasure hunt: A game of treasure hunt will always do well at birthday parties. You can have a theme based treasure hunt. Make your own treasure clue cards or purchase printable treasure hunt cards. You needed to organize the cards well in advance and handover the first set of clues to both the teams. The first team or the child to find all the items is the winner.
