They can be less expensive than an organized event, especially if you’re on a budget, they can
be tailormade with a theme, you control the number of guests with no gate crashers. Keeping
your numbers tight is important to keep to the budget you have decided. You can’t run out of
food at a kid’s party!
CHOOSING YOUR THEME
Kids aged 3-8 years may like something with soft toys, making butterflies or being creative
with playdoh, blowing bubbles or games like jumping on a chair or beanbag when the music
Kids 6-10 might be more interested in a dressing up theme such as Pirates, Princesses,
Dinosaurs, Fairies, cowboys & Indians, Harry Potter, or a less expensive option could be
fancy dress with whatever is in the wardrobe.
Older kids are likely to go more for a challenge theme. Perhaps sports challenges like
football, softball, badminton, quizzes, treasure hunts inside or outside if possible.
Send or hand deliver the invitation with the chosen theme and time of the party, 4pm-6.30pm
or other, depending on the age of the guests. Bigger kids may want to start later and finish
later, you know your kid’s behavior patterns.
Some kids will want to invite everyone in their class which could become unmanageable and
expensive, so keep numbers tight. You will want enough so they can play nicely together and
sit at the food table together, no walking around with food and drinks. About 12-15 guests is
a popular suggestion. Also allow for parents who will stay at the party with younger children.
Keep your party to one room, if indoors, with the food table in an adjoining room, maybe
borrow some small picnic tables and chairs.
FOOD AND SNACKS
Offer a selection of familiar foods, you don’t want a table of something different which won’t
be touched. Maybe a selection of small sandwiches, veggies with dips. Older kids will prefer
burgers, hotdogs, or pizza slices, with drinks in separate, non-breakable cups.
Make it easy with recycled or eco-friendly tablecloths, napkins, and drink containers with lids
and straws. All easier when clearing up.
Forget the take-home party bags with unhealthy sweets wrapped in cellophane, all kids love
ice cream! Give them the best treat of the party!
