As you begin planning your child’s birthday party, there are a lot of things to take into consideration. You have to think about the time of year, the time of day, the theme, the number of kiddos, what type of birthday party it will be, and so many other things. Is your child having a sleepover? Do they want cake or ice cream? Are you having an outdoor birthday party or an indoor birthday party?
While you may be concerned about the actual details of the birthday party and if your child will enjoy the party, there is one thing you may forget to consider — the other kids. Your child’s friend should be considered during the birthday party planning process to ensure that every child will be able to participate and enjoy the party.
From the food to the birthday party itself, there are many different aspects that should be considered. At Jumpin’ Jamboree, we know how to plan the perfect birthday party and we know what makes a party enjoyable for everyone! In this blog, we are going to give you some pointers to help you better plan a birthday party that every kiddo can enjoy!
Nowadays, with more knowledge about food restrictions, it is important to know if your child’s friends have any dietary restrictions that you need to be aware of. If you are unsure, add it to the invitation or ask the parents when they RSVP. Many children may be aware of what they can and can’t eat, but asking a parent will help ensure you don’t run into any issues. After learning what dietary restrictions each child has, be sure to plan accordingly. If you have something that one child can’t eat, make sure you get them something they can. Or find something that every child can eat to avoid anyone wanting the “special” treat.
While the theme of your child’s birthday party should definitely be your child’s choice and should never depend on the other children, you might want to consider a few factors. What is the age range of the children? Will some of the kiddos like the theme more than others? Should you get goody bags with themed items or generic items? We don’t want you to pick a theme based on what your kiddo’s friend likes when your child wants something completely different, but we just want to make sure you consider everyone and everything when planning a birthday party.
The Type of Party
There are many different types of birthday parties that your kiddo will love, but you should consider their friends when making the plan. While most activities are easy for all children to be part of, there are some that are not good for every child. It also depends on current situations. For example, don’t have a pool party or plan it for a later date if your child’s best friend is currently in a cast, they will not be able to participate and swim with their friends. Don’t plan a sleepover if half of the kiddos are too young to spend the night. If one of the friends is scared of the ocean, do not have a beach party. You want all of the children to be able to participate comfortably, this will make the party more fun for your kiddo as well.
The Age Group
Your child’s friends are not always going to be the same age, especially if you have multiple kiddos, you are likely going to end up inviting a friend for your other child so they have someone to hang out with as well. If your child is friends with kids in the neighborhood, it is likely they will not all be the same age. You need to take age into consideration. If most of the children are older, doing certain activities may be hard for younger children. If you choose something that caters more to the younger age group, the older kiddos will not have a good time. Finding something that the entire group can do, without worrying about age, will help everyone enjoy the birthday party.
