Every parent knows how hard it is to come up with fun birthday ideas every year. It is the dreaded gauntlet of birthday party planning and classroom celebrations. You want to do something different…something exciting…and something that will make you look like the party planning diva that you are…but HOW?!
Here are a few of our tips for acheiving "Super Mom" status:
Keep it simple
A fabulous children’s party doesn’t have to cost you a fortune! It is all about the play time and having fun. We like to choose a venue and a theme based on the child’s very favorite thing to do…whether it is a trip to the ice skating rink, or an old fashioned picnic with friends to a ball field. So often we see parents get caught up in what other parents will think. Who cares! This is a party for the kids.
Get your child involved
Let them help with the guest list, the activities and the food selections. They will know what their friends will love. Kids love to "design" their own parties!
Remember…it is about the memories
Every year is a milestone and each age requires some different stretch of your comfort zone. Can you really make a Batman themed cake? Yes! Can you handle 10 pre-teen boys on a paint ball course? Yes! Put together the perfect spa party? Yes! Sometimes the best memories are made when you simply celebrate with family.
Just relax and have fun...the kids will tell you what to do!
