The A B C of P A R T Y

Kids love to run, jump, climb, slide… any action activity is great for parties. Not only does it keep the kids happy, it also helps release all the excess energy obtained from all the sweets.
B is for Baking
Eats and treat don’t have to be costly. Kids will be more than happy with a few treats. Maybe having some “real” food too as you don’t want the kiddies to fill empty tummies with just sweets.
C is for Cake
The most important moment is of course the blowing out of the candles. There are some awesome cakes to choose from nowadays, but remember kids are not fussy as long as there’s candles to blow out.
D is for Décor
Depending on your budget you can go all out and go completely overboard, or you can just to a few simple things to create theme that will look just as nice.
E is for Entertainment
Entertainment for birthday parties is endless. You can hire clowns, face painters ect or sometimes just a simple jumping castle will do the trick.

Get a class list from your toddler’s teacher and if possible, try to invite the whole class so that nobody feels left out
G is for Games
Party games are fun and a great way of keeping everyone busy. There is a lot of different games you can play like musical chairs, pin the tail, ect
H is for Helium balloons
Balloons can be a hazard for little kids, so best to keep them out of reach. Helium balloons is then the answer. Balloons always add a nice birthday feel to your party décor.
I is for Invitations
Making invitations can be fun to do. With computer access and a few arts and craft piece you can make a great invite.

L is for Laughter
A successful birthday party can always be rated by the amount of laughter that you hear around you!

Don’t stress too much about the mommies (and daddies). Most mommies will be happy if their kids are having fun and they can relax for a while.
N is for Noise
Expect lot of noise! A party is the one time where kids should be allowed to be loud. Warn your neighbors and let the kids enjoy themselves.
P is for Party pack
This is a nice little something you can give to each child before they go home as a “thank you for coming” gift. Kids love getting a something to take home with them.
Q is for Quiet time
After all the chaos is over and kids have gone to bed – take a nice long, hot bubble bath and just relax!

On hot days, juice will do for adults. On a colder day you can add coffee and tea. Avoid sugary fizzy stuff for the kids which will make them bouncing off the walls in no time.
S is for Safety
Try to keep the kids together at all times. It might be a bit difficult keeping an eye on twenty kids if they all going in their own direction. Close off unsafe areas and never let kids go to the pool alone.
T is for Themes
There are plenty of themes to choose from these days. Choose something that your child likes as a theme. With alder kids, you can let them choose their own theme.
