This one may seem obvious, but budget is often the first thing on your mind when thinking about kids’ party ideas at home.
There are SO many things to consider.
If you plan in advance and stick to it, you’ll be amazed by the amount of money you save.
Make sure to keep a list of what you spend and don’t go over your pre-set budget. Meaning both your child and YOU can enjoy the day without any money worries.
To think like your child, talk to your child.
Often, when thinking of kids’ party ideas, your child and their friends will be going through a stage of obsession for the same character or toy at the same time. Which makes it a win-win situation for everybody.
Top tip: Look for inspiration on platforms like Pinterest. It’s a goldmine to gather kids’ party ideas at home.
Now, you might be thinking, “catering for a kids’ party isn’t rocket science”...
But it IS essential.
If it’s a kids’ party at home, keep it simple with a selection of sandwiches or party foods. Use biscuit cutters to make fun shapes or create a DIY sandwich buffet so your little guests can choose what they like.
Don’t forget to ask the other parents if their little ones have any allergies.
And keep the adults in mind too with a selection of snacks they'll love.
I don't know about you, but in our opinion, the MOST important element of the party is the atmosphere.
It should be fun, welcoming, and full of positive energy. How about including party games that can include everyone?
If you're thinking about hiring a professional entertainer, make sure you book early to avoid disappointment.
