How to Throw a Successful Children’s Birthday Party

Throwing a children’s birthday party doesn’t have to be stressful. It’s your time to shine. By giving your child a special birthday party with his or her friends, you will impress the other kids and their parents with your amazing kids birthday party skills. If you’ve never thrown a party before for kids, relax. Below are a few tips that will ensure your success.

Fortunately, with a little planning, you can host a wonderful birthday party for your child that everyone will love and remember.

Birthday Guests and Invitations

It might not be a good idea to have a huge birthday party if this is your first time. Many parents stick to four kids up until the age of four, then after that, they allow one child for each year of life. So, a ten year old would get to invite ten friends to their birthday party. Keeping kids birthday parties fairly small eliminates the issues that can come with having too many kids in one place.

Birthday party invitations should be made up and sent out at least a couple of weeks in advance, otherwise you’ll end up with a lot of guests who can’t make it due to previous plans.

    Best Birthday Party Location

    Where you hold a child’s birthday party is also a major consideration. Your home could be a great place, but you might prefer an area, such as a park or restaurant with a playground to keep kids busy without much extra effort from you. Another good place might be a skating rink.

    If you do hold the birthday party at a park or other locale, be sure to book ahead so you won’t bump into other parties and discover there’s no room for your group.

    Decorations and Treats

    Who doesn’t love cake and ice cream? You can either bake your own birthday cake or buy one from the bakery. With the printable icing sheets available these days, you can get absolutely any design you like. Cupcakes are a great way to go, too, since they are easy to handle and there is no waiting for the cake to be cut.

    For décor, you really only need a handful of things to make the birthday party location look the part. Streamers and balloons are a given. If you are doing a theme party, you can get posters or wall decals to put up, as well. There are kits that include everything from streamers to tablecloths and paper plates in just about any theme you can think of. You don’t need to go all out, though, even just paper plates in the party theme can do the trick, particularly for little kids.

    Kids Birthday Party Games

    To keep kids occupied, you’ll need age appropriate birthday games. Very small children and preschoolers do best with non-competitive games such as treasure hunts or piñatas and follow the leader. For older children, you can have scavenger hunts, races, or even a craft that is related to the party theme. It’s a good idea to have a backup game that has no time limit, like a backyard waterslide or a bouncy house that will keep kids having a blast while they wait for their parents.

    You don’t have to spend hundreds of dollars on a super amazing birthday party for your child. As long as you plan ahead and include lots of fun things to do, your child’s birthday party will be a big success.

    Picking out just the right Father's Day gift for your Dad isn’t always an easy task.

    What do you usually give your Mom on Mother's Day?

    The Selfish Act Of Giving, by Laura Tucker

    Traditional knowledge tells us the business of gift giving and receiving is built around the old adage, "It's better to give than to receive." As a society of giving people we want to make an acknowledgment to the people in our life of what the relationship means to us, but the act isn't nearly as selfless as it seems. 

    At first, thought giving a gift seems like a selfless act, but once you follow all the thoughts involved, it isn't really selfless after all. There is something you are hoping to gain from it, so it can't be completely selfless. You're doing it so that you will feel good about yourself. Seeing that look on the recipient's face, the immediate knowledge that they've been waiting for this gift or are genuinely surprised by it is what we're waiting for. This becomes a gift to ourselves. 

    When I shop for a gift for someone, I try to find something that lets them know how I connect to them, a symbol of our relationship. This is someth…
