Birthday Party Ideas for the Best Kids Party
Most people will think about the theme fort heir birthday party first. But there are far more important issues to consider in creating a successful party. Get these things right and you’ll create an amazing party where all the children have a great time and without any tears.
Prior to the birthday, having activities to do and plan at least a week before the party is a great way to create a sense of anticipation and the excitement builds up at the big day gets closer.
Of course, the first important task is to prepare and send out the party invitations.
Spending some time thinking about how to incorporate the theme into the invitation can set up how you want the guests to prepare themselves also. Another important activity is informing your guests how you like me to dress for the occasion.
For the Pop Idol Parties, the week prior to the party will consist of choosing songs that the party group will rehearse and record making sure of course but they all like the song choices.
Creating their Group name and Album name for their CD, deciding what their alter ego, pop star image will be and choosing the appropriate clothes to match that and of course creating the invitations that will suitably Brand the birthday party theme.
The agreement is something I find really important. Children respond really well to discipline and structure. If you can begin the party with a discussion and also ask for their permission to be able to reel them in if they get a little unruly, that is, you know, having Fun then they will respond immediately should a situation arise.
After all, the idea of having a party is to have fun with all your close friends so we want to make sure they can all have that. Agreements to have fun without affecting the theme, considering the bounds of the time limits allocated, are a great birthday party idea.
For Pop Idol Parties, I formally call it the pre-production meeting to emulate what a music producer would do with the artists they are about to record. Choosing an activity where the children are actively engaged in doing something together that has an outcome is a great team bonding exercise.
An activity that involves learning in creating rather than just being entertained and overstimulated is a great thing to do. Adults now the benefit of team building and corporations do various exercises that taken out of the normal environment to see how they will react and work together. The same applies with children.
For the Pop Idol Parties, we rehearse and recorded our chosen songs, take over seventy photographs for the front and inside covers of the CD we are creating, then to finish off with, they all sign their pop star autographs onto the back covers which they can then decorate and get really creative and turn them into a wonderfully colorful piece of artwork.
Food and drinks is a very important issue. Statistics tell us that up to 8% of children have an allergy or a hyperactive disorder such as ADHD that could be triggered by sugar. The best practice here is to ask parents to let you know about their child when they RSVP the invitation.
My suggestions here are to be well prepared to keeping all happy and refreshed for the two to three hours that most parties last for. Healthy food can be energizing, cheap and easy to prepare with less clean up after the event.
On arrival to drink, prepare either filtered or sparkling water with a squeeze of lime, a slice of lime and a piece or two of mint leaves. This could be in a punch bowl or made up in glasses or plastic glasses. This is refreshing, thirst quenching and makes them feel good inside and hydrated.
To eat on arrival, prepare a fresh chopped fruit platter or fruit on skewers. Watermelon, cantaloupe, apple, peach etc. This is also refreshing and energizing to make them feel good inside and create a good state of mind as they get into the party atmosphere.
Don’t stop for food during the party activity. It just doesn’t work to break the flow once children are focused on an activity and foods can slow concentration. It is important to keep them hydrated though. So more of the water or fruit punch is a great refresher.
After the activity, have food that is energizing and appetizing. My suggestion here is to do easy foods that are vegetarian. This is because it will be lighter for them and their energy levels won’t be depleted.
Having said that, one of the easiest party foods is pizza. Most suburbs these days have a pizza shop that will deliver so you can organize to have them delivered at the time when the activity will be completed.
Choosing a theme that will provide some form of memorabilia is wonderful to keep the theme alive and have a lasting reflection on the day and activity. In the case of Pop Idol Parties, the outcome is a CD with the party boy or girl and all their guests photos on the front and inside cover, their voices united singing their favourite pop songs, and their autographs on the back cover also.
I hope you find these five tips very useful when preparing your next children’s party.
