Planning a Party That the Kids Will Have a Blast With

There are many things you must consider when planning a party for kids. You must consider adult supervision, entertainment, destination, theme, food and more when planning a party that everyone can enjoy.

So, we give you this easy to use checklist of party ideas and tips.
Making the Invitations
When it comes to planning a party for the kids, you should include a bit of important information first. This is where the invitation comes in handy!

A good party invitation often includes:
  • The date of the party.
  • What time the party starts and ends.
  • Where the party takes place.
  • Who chaperones the children.
  • List of activities, attractions and possible guests for entertainment.
  • A list of things the guest should bring.
  • Whether or not to bring a gift.
  • Contact information, this is so that the parents of your guest can reach you right away. This information is useful for parents to RSVP for the party in advance, turn down the invitation or discuss details regarding the party and/or guests.
To get your kids into the party mood you can make the invitations together! However, if you prefer no glitter and glue, you can always buy premade theme invitations at most major stores.
Cool Party Themes and Ideas You Can’t Go Wrong With

  • Slumber parties and sleepovers

    A fun night filled with movies, popcorn, pizza, sleeping bags, story time and more! Kids often love the idea of having a sleepover with their friends. This type of party also allows the kids to have plenty of fun in a safe environment.

  • Favorite movie/cartoon themes

    Every kid has at least one favorite hero, heroine, princess, or cartoon. So why not throw an awesome party with this character in mind! Kids love it, and there are often ample amounts of party supplies with their favorite character, too.

  • Theme parks

    If you have older kids and enough parents who are willing to chaperon why not take everyone a thrill-filled adventure at a nearby theme park! From a wide selection of rides to the fun side shows you are sure to keep everyone entertained and happy. Many theme parks also offer party areas and sometimes party supplies.

  • Carnivals and circuses

    Nearby carnivals, state fairs, and circuses are all fun events any child would enjoy. However, if there are no carnivals or circuses in your area, you can always throw a carnival or circus themed party. From fun carnival games, magicians, clowns, treats and more you are sure to bring a smile or two with this party idea.
  • Pool parties

    Need a party that offers some fun in the sun and is also safe? You can’t go wrong with a pool party. This type of party is perfect for kids of all ages. All you need is some cool floaties and a fun summer playlist.
  • Destination parties
Destination parties are often ones held at either the local park, zoo, aquarium, lakes and beaches, camping and so on. These types of parties are great for those who want something educational and family friendly.
  • A spooky Halloween bash

    Even if it isn’t October 31st you can always throw a Halloween themed party. Kids get to enjoy playing dress up, playing traditional Halloween games and more.  Also, you must have plenty of food ideas, so you can include everyone including kids with food allergies.

Party Supplies and Other Goodies
When throwing a party for kids make sure you get enough napkins, cups, paper plates, trash bags, and plastic ware since these items get the most use.

To give your kids party a wonderful ending give each kid a fun little goodie bag full of party themed items, candy, pencils, and other small trinkets!
Friendly Food for Those With Allergies
When it comes to food and kids, you must take care. Some kids have food allergies that can often leave them feeling excluded. To prevent this make sure you ask all the parents beforehand about their children having any allergies. This way you can know for sure which recipes to pull out for fun finger food and which ones to avoid for the upcoming event.

Common food allergies are nuts, eggs, milk, fish and shellfish, fruits and vegetables, gluten-containing grains, processed foods, and so on.

Should someone have an allergic reaction make sure you seek immediate medical attention and/or administer an EpiPen. This article is just for information purposes.
