Completing and mailing birthday party invitations is an unwelcome chore. No wonder parents are tempted to streamline the process by personally handing out birthday party invitations at school.
Each area has its "cool spots" for kids' birthday parties, so check Google for top-rated birthday party locations near you. You might be surprised at the local venues that offer all-inclusive birthday parties in private rooms. Check out malls, movie theatres, community centers, museums, restaurants, petting zoos, campgrounds and libraries. Many areas have activity centers or indoor playgrounds with different sports and fun things to do. Some have trampolines, bouncy houses, gymnastics equipment, tunnels, ball pits, video games, etc. This age group will probably have a ton of fun no matter the location. So, keep things active and exciting... with plenty of cake!
From the time you order your supplies until the day of your kid's birthday party, you can help keep your child interested in the theme with some special activities. If you plan a Princess-themed party for a little girl, you can mail her a birthday card and sign the name of her favorite princess. You can take your little boy on a real train ride to keep him excited about a Thomas the Tank Engine theme, or take your child to the zoo if the theme of your kid's birthday party is jungle animals.
Prepare your camera and camcorder to capture the moments. If you are into scrapbooking, put all the pictures, invitations, thank you notes, etc. to your scrapbook. Decorate your house depending on the party theme that you choose. Buy the necessary decors like balloons, piñatas, banners, streamers, confetti, etc. Use tablecloth, utensils, and dinnerware that match the theme of the party.
Make sure to send invitations early. Kids and parents seem to have very busy scheduled these days, so it is always a good idea to invite ahead of time. Two great places to order kids birthday party invitations are Etsy and TinyPrints. Etsy is the best place to start if you are looking for unique party invitations that will be a perfect match to your kids birthday party theme. There are plenty of shops that create custom invitations.
