For kids, they are one of the most exciting times of the year, but for parents the struggle is real! Of course, what we are talking about are birthday parties! Fortunately, you can read all about how to throw an epic birthday bash for your little one, with minimal effort for you. Keep reading to find out more.
First of all, to create that party atmosphere you’ll want to decorate the space in which you will throw the party. Of course, you can make all the decorations yourself but it’s just as economical and much easier to buy them online.
Indeed, you’ll find that there is a wide range of decorations in just about every theme you can think of available online. This means you can choose the theme that is your child’s current obsession such as Paw Patrol, Minecraft, or even Barbie!
Just be sure to get a good selection of both room decorations such as streamers, and banners, as well as decorations to adorn your part table such as plates, cake toppers, and cups.
Food is always one of the most central parts of a kids’ party, and there are many options you can consider here. The first is to choose a venue that provides catering so you don’t have to worry about it. The second is to make all the food yourself. Although this can get a bit stressful especially when you have every other aspect of the party to set up.
The third option is to buy food like pizzas and ice cream cake that are easy to share and that will delight the kids, but require the minimum of effort from you. Combine these with paper plates and cups and you can make things even easier.
Gifts are often a bit of a sticky subject when it comes to throwing a child’s party. This is because little ones can often get very focused on the gifts and forget everything else that is going on. Also, kids tend to get a lot of plastic toys they may only play with a few times before they end up cluttering up your home, or taking up space in landfills which can be a real problem for the more eco-minded parent.
One way to deal with this is to have a gift list, so your child only receives items you know they want and will use over the long term. For older children, you may even wish to suggest that party guests buy gift cards online instead. Then the child can spend them precisely on what they want, and they won’t get distracted by all the toys they get during the party.
Last, of all, if you are going to throw the most fun party you will need to have games. Of course, the type of games you play is entirely up to you. Some parents prefer more traditional party games like a minute to win it, while others use newer innovations like escape room-style games to keep the kids engaged.
