Everyone wants their birthday to be special and the party to be unique. This is true not only for the person whose birthday it is, but it also holds true for the people who are organising the party. The key is to hold the kind of party that is unforgettable and exciting. This requires that you have some unique ideas for the birthday party that are going to make the event outstanding.
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!
When my younger daughter Hannah was in preschool, I noticed that parents would tuck birthday party invitations into the children's open cubby squares. Though this method did not present a problem when all children in a class were invited to a party, when some youngsters were invited and others were not - particularly when the invitations were in brightly colored envelopes - it was all-too-clear to the ones not invited that there was no envelope in their cubbyhole. In the preschool years, it's better for parents to hand the invitations directly to the other parents or caregivers. Or, if that's not possible due to work schedules, to bite the bullet and mail them. Better yet, to email the invitations if that's an agreeable alternative.
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.
Your children, especially boys like to play games and to run around at a birthday-party and that is why it is always better to have the festivity outdoors. If you happen to be living in an apartment then it would be better to hold the birthday party in a park or a children playground, if the weather permits. Your second option would be to have the party in a public place like a restaurant which has a children play area. A girl birthday gathering can be held at home as girls are not as boisterous as boys and prefer quieter games.
