While many aspects of your own childhood are perhaps becoming a fairly distant memory, you almost certainly remember the feeling of excitement that you experienced on your birthdays. A fun filled day ahead of you, surrounded by all of your best friends without a care in the world, and best of all, the presents that you’re going to get. Birthday parties and celebrations are special moments in a child’s upbringing and, as a parent, it important to “get it right.” But how do you do that? Many parents, especially those that have never planned any kids birthday parties before, don’t have a clue where to start and end up dreading what should be a special day for the whole family. If this sounds all too familiar, you’re in luck, as Oaktree Play Centre has been helping parents to throw birthday parties for years – and they’re always a roaring success!
Your Kids Will Love Their Future Birthday Parties If You Follow Our Tips!
Having helped families from Markham, Richmond Hill, Stoufville, King City, Aurora, Maple and New Market with their birthday party arrangements in recent years, we’ve found it imperative to use the following tips if you want to have fond memories of your child’s big day.
- Always Be Prepared – Many parents fail before they even start, approaching the party planning process with the completely wrong mindset. This day is important to your child, and if you think you can just “wing it” then you’re sadly mistaken! Start planning the party well ahead of time and take your child’s needs and interests into account.
- Don’t Stay At Home – This is an extraordinary day for your kid, so don’t throw the party in a setting that’s ordinary for them. Take them and their friends to a place they wouldn’t usually go. There are many child-friendly locations in the local area, including the indoor playground facilities offered by Oaktree Play Centre, and there’s another added benefit to doing so – you won’t be responsible for cleaning up afterwards!
- Hold Off On the Sugary Foods – We all know that kids love to eat cake and candy at birthday parties, but it’s not a good idea to let them have any sugary snacks early on in the day. Children don’t need the extra energy to have fun; being in a fun environment with their friends is more than enough!
- Arrange a Show – Kids can get bored relatively easily and that’s not something you want to have to deal with, trust us. Add some variety to the party by arranging a show to keep them entertained for 30+ minutes. Whether it be a clown or a magic show, hiring a quality performer will “wow” the kids and might even let you have a few moments rest during a very busy day!
