Planning a children’s birthday party – here’s are a few tips
Listen to your child and do what they want
Some kids are quiet and don’t like being the centre of attention. We all want our children to be outgoing and confident but not every child is born that way. Many high achievers are big thinkers but quiet by nature. Think about what comes naturally to your child and design the party around their strengths.
Have the party outside of home
We do run kids party venues so it sounds biased, but if you choose a party place designed for active kids then it will be fun for everyone. You’ll be free from worry about your home and feeling obligated to clean up throughout the party. Even the best behaved kids go slightly crazy when there is a party and that’s better to happen in an environment that is designed for kids party action.
Be in the moment for you and your child
No matter what you do or where you go we suggest you have someone who is not related assist with preparing and running the party so you can actually be in the moment and enjoy the magic of your beautiful child enjoying being a child – that part of their life will be over so quickly that you need to capture those memories. Put another way – you won’t remember how much you paid someone to help you but you will always remember the day if you are in the moment (and in the photos too.
The last bit of advice – do what your child wants not what you think is what they want. We all do it (think we know better at times) but make sure you listen and give your child the party they want
Madfun Kids Discos is a fun birthday party idea if you live in Melbourne

Why Madfun kids parties provide free entry for adults
At Madfun we know that more and more parents are having childrens parties in professional party rooms instead of at home for a whole number of reasons and that’s why your parents and relatives who want to stay are welcome to come and we provide free entry for adults into our kids party venues.
Avoid damage to the house during a kids party
A Childrens birthday party room is designed for kids entertainment so parents aren’t worried about their house getting wrecked by kids running around and knocking things over or leaving stains on the carpet or walls. Our place gets marks and damage all the time but it has been designed for it so we just repaint and repair as part of our maintenance. Damage to your home though is a different story
Divorced couples host their childs party in neutral territory
Kids living with seperated or remarried parents is a part of life now and the great thing about hosting your childs party at a party room or kids party venue is that it is neutral ground for everyone. This allows parents, relatives and in laws from each side of the family to come and enjoy the childs party without any pressure or feeling they are intruding.
Professionally Organised Childrens parties are fun and easy
Good parents do not neccessarily make for great entertainers however professional party hosts with organised childrens party games ensure the kids are happy and occupied. The great thing about that is the parents can actually watch and enjoy their kids having a fantastic time
Catering for Parents at a childrens birthday party
As strange as it sounds, it is the parents that need the most attention when it comes to catering at a childrens party. Childrens party food is very simple because kids like it that way. Parents however do enjoy something to snack on when they are standing at the back talking during the party. That’s why its important to go to a childrens venue that has catering for adults. We also allow you to bring in catering for adults. We provide tea and coffee too.
A properly equipped kids party room can often cost the same as having a party at home
Each Madfun venue is purpose built for childrens birthday parties and is not used for any other purpose. The standard of venues offered for childrens parties can range from bare empty rooms to fully equipped kids birthday party centres so just make sure you book somewhere that suits you. If you have the budget, then choose a fully equipped place that provides kids entertainers as well as the food and drink. We have seen many parents host a home party only to discover that it can cost more than a walk in and walk out venue like Madfun because we do this every weekend and we have all the equipment.
