When the birthday of your kid is approaching, you start thinking about the ways of its celebration long before the guests are invited. You want this occasion to become a remarkable event and this is quite understandable. However, a birthday is not the only holiday you may organize for your children. There are many occasions to do that and you can also organize a holiday for your kids and their friends without any occasion at all – just to make it a surprise! Here are some tips that may become the major points of your plan.
Make Up the List of Invited Guests
Even if your kid wants to invite all his/her friends, this may be impossible for different reasons – starting with the place of celebration and up to the dishes you plan to cook and your budget, of course. So, the best way out is to make up the list of invited guests with your child.
Choose the Place
This point is one of the most important, because it affects the number of guests as well as the whole preparation process. Among the places that are traditionally chosen for holiday celebration, the most popular are your house or apartment, kids’ café or a family restaurant, a kids’ club, a cottage with a large yard or any other place you are going to rent for the occasion. The choice of the place generally depends upon the amount of guests, the festive occasion itself, the amount of space for games and rest and safety measures, of course.
Define the Topic
Before organizing a holiday for your kid, it is a must to define its topic first. This will depend upon the type of the occasion, the age of kids invited and the preferences of your child. The topic may be associated with a favorite cartoon, fairy tale, book, color or even character of your kid. Having defined the topic, take your time to select the elements that will be associated with it. These should include everything from the invitation cards and up to the dishes, characters, costumes and the scenario of the holiday. Do not forget about small gifts for each guest – this will be a nice surprise they will remember for a long time.
Write the Scenario
If you organize a kid’s holiday on your own, take your time to write the scenario to keep your guests interested. There are lots of special shows organized by professional companies you can invite for children. Another variant is to find special contests for kids on the web and entertain them on your own. If you select the latter variant, get ready to spend your whole time with the kids or invite someone for this purpose. And, of course, do not forget about the tasty treats most kids are crazy about. The choice is tremendous today, so it is up to you to make the choice!
To make the occasion really remarkable, do not forget to take photos! They will help keep in mind the most interesting moments of the holiday, thus making the holiday memorable for everyone!
