1. Planning a Kids Party. A fun kids party should
usually last only two hours. Hereˇ¦s a sample schedule with a
start time of 1 p.m.
2. Have your Child Help With Planning a Kids
Party. It's always a good idea to have your child help as much
as possible with the planning and choosing of items for their
party. Hopefully, they will not change their minds after you
bought the items. The child learns how much work goes into
having a party. If you create a less stressful party, the actual
party will go on without a hitch. Also, if the child is going to
be involved in planning the party, they can be involved in
cleaning it up! Fair is fair.
1 p.m. Kids begin arriving. Have kids begin playing icebreaker
games or begin crafts.
1:20 Play 1st children's party game.
1:40 Play a 2nd children's party game.
2:00 Serve lunch if youˇ¦re serving or skip to cake and ice cream
as food for kids parties.
2:30 Open gifts from kids parties.
2:45 Favorite game and goodbyes.
Children's Party Ideas*Keep your guest list no longer than your
child is old. Smaller is better and easier to manage.
4. Choosing Kids Party Themes Don't even think of
choosing a kids party theme for your child ˇV unless they are
just too young. Cartoon characters and such are their lives.
They are the professionals. They know what they like. All you
need to do is figure out the details.
*Make a schedule of kids birthday party activities to keep
something going all the time.
*Parties should last only about 2 hours.
*If you're planning outdoor activities, make sure you have some
indoor activities on reserve, just in case the weather decides
not to cooperate.
