Organising a Kids Party
If you have decided to have a kids party then here’s a few tips on how to have a hassle free and fun children’s birthday party.
Compare the cost of a catered birthday party and a home children’s party venue
If you’re going to a venue then choose a party place that is fun for the kids and easy for you too. We’ve all run home parties where us mum’s are stuck in the kitchen or running around throughout the duration of party and miss out on everything except the cake and the birthday song and that’s not how to remember a birthday. Compare the cost and if you want to provide the same entertainment and atmosphere you will find a home party may actually be more expensive.
Keep the parents happy at the kids birthday party
Choose a kids party venue that is easy for parents to get to and if there is something for them to do if they have to drop off the kids then that is an added bonus. Madfun Kids Disco is 5 mins from Knox City Shopping Centre and our Moorabbin venue is 5 mins from the Moorabbin DFO so parents can go and have a coffee or do some shopping if they would like too. We also have tea and coffee available at our venues, plus we can order in Sandwich or fruit platters or cook hot food platters if parents of younger children wish to stay. You can also bring in your own food for parents too, just make sure it’s Nut Free.
Keep the party to a maximum of one and half hours for kids. It’s fun until the kids get tired and that’s the limit of kids endurance before the tears and tantrums start.
Have some simple fun games for you childrens birthday party
Have some simple organised games prepared. Kids will do almost anything you ask them so if you organise games and activities they will participate and they love it. At Madfun we have a party hostess for every session and children’s birthday party games that include dancing, singing and other children’s birthday party games.
Serve childrens birthday party food half way through party
Have a break half way through the party and sit them down for something to eat. Play softer music, give them something to eat and drink and just get the kids to rest for 10-15 minutes and then they’ll be ready to go again
Have someone clean up after your childrens birthday party
If you’re thinking of having a party at home, you’ll have to clean up before everyone arrives and then again after everyone’s leaves. Kids will be happy (and tired) no matter what you do, so try to organise a party where you can walk out the door at the end and leave someone else to clean up.
The kids care more about loving and fun parents than anything else so be fun be excited and just be there.
