Minor Planning Involved….
Sure, these elaborate parties sound like a lot of fun, but what if you don’t have a lot of time to plan the ultimate shindig for your child? Last minute planners fret not, here are some ideas to make your child’s party a shining success!
Modern-day Pizza Party
Have a pizza party with lots of different toppings for the kids to select! Buy pre-made pizza dough shells, sauce, mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, mushrooms, ham, pineapple, bacon, sausage—whatever toppings you like, and let the kids create their own masterpieces! Pizza shells should come in normal pie sizes and all the way down to personal pan sizes, so you can decide how to go about the pizza party. Rent some movies or dig out a bunch from your collection so the kids have something else with which to keep themselves occupied. Play music, board games or even make up games for the kids to play and win prizes!
Slumber Party for Just the Guys or Just the Girls
Invite your child’s closest group of friends and prepare for a long night! Get tons of snacks and goodies, throw the kids in the car and pick out a bunch of movies—or take a vote and send your spouse out to get some flicks! Set up some board games, let the kids tell ghost stories or play video games or even have a cooking competition. Girls are usually more accustomed to the sleepover party atmosphere, so they may need only minor supervision as they’ve been at these types of parties dozens of times!
No matter what party planning tips you ultimately choose, your child will have a wonderful time simply because he or she is spending a special day with family, friends and loved ones. Enjoy your day together—just don’t forget to take some photos!
