Kids parties can present a challenge to any parent no matter how inventive. In these days where online entertainment and console gaming tend to take up so much of the average child’s time how does a parent make sure that the party lives up to the excitement that children are exposed to everyday through electronic entertainment.
For boys the answer seems to be to stick with the tried and proven.
That means that excitement in the form of action, surprises and engagement are the way to make sure that a boys party is something that not only the kids will remember but that parents and other adults will also enjoy.
A great idea is to take your cue from what is hot in the cinemas at the moment. Most party shops will carry licensed merchandise from movies that kids will enjoy. If a fast food operation is giving away kids toys with meals that have characters from a hot movie chances are that a theme along those lines will make any boys party into a success.
Think masks and toys that each attendee can take away from when it comes time to go home.
Great suggestion from youngfilmacademy.co.uk to make your kid birthday amazing is that superheroes are always a great choice for birthday theme. Getting in a character actor to join in the fun is also a fabulous idea – it makes the kids imaginations come alive.
If you’re thinking of taking the party to a venue then think actin. A party held at a laser tag venue is great for keeping boys (and girls) entertained.
If you want to save on money think about something simple like a picnic with traditional games in the outdoors. Simple pin the tail on the donkey or a Pinata can turn a party from boring to great fun.
Whether or not you want to spend or keep it simple always remember to keep it fun and entertaining.
