Whether the child is the "first" one or if you are planning a party for any other aged child, let us give you a few tips, ideas and secrets to make the occasion more enjoyable for everyone.
Choosing a theme for a gathering can really liven up a festivity. If the child likes a particular sport, they may like the birthday festivity to have their favourite sport theme. To cater to the theme you may need to take the birthday group out to the place where they can indulge in that sport. Like a roller skating rink, or to an ice skating rink.
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.
Why not throw your own diva dance party at home and include all the extras! You can hire lights and even a mirror ball, and use your iPod or MP3 player to provide an unlimited stream of party dance music for the girls. Why not do a little research and find out what the latest dance craze is, or dances that your daughter and her friends might love. With plenty of birthday party food, and a video camera, the fun is unlimited in her very own dance party. And to top it off, why not include a microphone and have Karaoke performances, making sure that you video tape it because these recordings will bring you joy in years to come, and provide a wonderful source of embarrassment on your daughter's 21st birthday!
Make sure to browse Pinterest for kids party ideas. You can do a specific search is you have already picked out your theme or you can search for something like "girls birthday paty" or "kids birthday party." You will be surprised by how many great ideas you will find! Not only Pinterest is a great place to look for a fun and original themes, you can also get ideas for decorations, fun crafts and games, birthday outfits for girls and more.
