How to Throw the Ultimate Kid’s Birthday Party

When your children are young, you’re the one who needs to throw the ultimate birthday party for them. As they get older they’ll have their own ideas and their own expectations, but young children only want to have fun. Each birthday party should be tailored to each child and, because they’re young, it means you can still do it on a budget. Here are five tips on throwing the ultimate birthday party:

  1. Plan it in Secret
The best birthday party is one that your kid isn’t expecting. While you should never pretend that you have forgotten your child’s birthday, you can easily add little surprises that make the big day even more special. This can be anything from buying their favorite dessert to bringing in a beloved family member from across the country. Whatever your child’s age, and whatever your child’s interested in, there must be something special you can keep secret to make their birthday more special.
  1. Let Them Invite Their Friends
When children are young, it’s best to get birthday invitations. These invitations are not so much for the child themselves, but for their parents so that they can plan ahead. You should allow your child to choose who they are going to invite. There’s a lot of social structure to a child’s life, and friendships can end or blossom without you even knowing about it. Give them a number of friends they can invite, and let them choose.

  1. Get Themed Decorations
A party scheme never goes out of style. For younger children, decorating is a simple trip to the party store. Balloons, table cloths, and plates are all a great way to bring a look together. You want to transport your child into a world of their own – a birthday world. A great tip is to match the cake with the decorations, or the decorations with the cake, whichever you have a clear idea on first.

  1. Plan Something Special
The best birthdays are ones where kids can do something special with their friends. A trip to an aquarium is a great option. Children love to learn and have fun together, and aquariums let them do both. There’s something beautiful and inspiring about aquariums, which will make any birthday celebration at SeaQuest a memorable one. If you can’t pay for their friends to go, take the family instead. The birthday will be memorable and special either way.

  1. Plan Activities
Children love to have a bunch of different activities to do. You can have lawn games set out, or even a competition for the children to play with. You can have them bake their own desserts in pre-measured kits. You can have arts and crafts ready to go. It’s easy to make a little kid’s birthday amazing.

There are many tips on how to throw a great party for your child. The secret, however, is making sure that the party is based on your child. On what they like to do, on things they’re interested in, and what they like to eat. It’s their big day after all!

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
