5 Ways To Make A Child's Birthday Party Special

When your son or daughter’s birthday is coming around, you want to throw a party for them that is extra special. Sure, some years you might keep it as a family-only gathering, but on others, there’s a cause for celebration. After all, if ‘all of the other kids are having birthday parties’, then you really do have to make sure that you pull all of the stops out to make your child’s birthday extra special. But how can you do it? Here are some simple tips.

1: Think about a special venue 

Whilst you don’t have to think of anything ridiculously expensive or grandiose here - after all, it’s a children's party, not a wedding - it’s a good idea to think about the venue options to make it extra special. Perhaps your child is really into laser tag, or escape rooms, or ice skating, and you could organise a little party there. In the summer, you could always put the party on in your back garden!

2: Opt for some delicious food 

Of course, at most birthday parties, there’s invariably a cake on offer. This is great news for most young kids, but you can really make your child’s birthday special by cooking up some delicious food or getting some food delivered if you’re really feeling generous. Think about what your child really loves, and try to base the food options around this. Pizza, we’re talking to you!

3: Consider the entertainment 

Sure, kids can make fun amongst themselves most of the time, but after a while, this is going to be pretty boring. Think about the entertainment that you can sort for the party; perhaps you could hire magic pros to keep the kids entertained with some tricks, or you could even go for a clown if you can find one that isn’t too, you know, scary. Think about entertainment options!

4: Choose a theme 

Let’s be honest, who doesn’t love a party with a theme? Whether you opt for superheroes, or fancy dress in general - which could be easier for the other Mums to provide outfits for - it’s a good idea to make things a little more fun by picking a theme that your child really loves. You’ll probably want to let them choose this, but putting the idea forward is worthwhile if you’re party planning!

5: Prepare some games beforehand 

The party will be a lot more memorable for your child and their friends if you plan out some games beforehand so that you know the day is going to be enjoyable. Sure, this might not go to plan (things rarely do when you’ve got kids) but nevertheless, you’ll have some things up your sleeve in case the occasion arises. A prepared party-planning Mum or Dad is a clever one, right?

So, if you’re planning a birthday party for your child, then keep some of these things in mind. Making the day special will mean that it is remembered by your child and their friends for the foreseeable future, which is good news for everyone! Enjoy party planning!
