Planning a kid’s indoor party can prove to be quite a challenge. There’s an immense amount of pressure a parent undergoes to plan everything and make your child and their friends happy. But planning for a kid’s party is a lot like that of adults… perhaps not exactly.
There are, of course, quite a few safety concerns which are to be addressed and a lot more monitoring of the party guests. Keeping these two points in mind, however, it’s quite possible to plan a great party for your kids et al.
Here are a few more things to keep in mind to help plan that unforgettable kid’s indoor party:-
- Food: A great party is often one with great food. Planning a menu (that doesn’t involve fast-food) and cooking it can become a difficult task especially because children need to be supervised constantly, resulting in less time spent in the kitchen. Plan ahead to have easy-to-make foods and keep gravy dishes to a minimum (to avoid a mess). Above all else, remember to keep the food as healthy as possible.
- Games: Games are a must! Those like Eye-Spy, Statue, and Musical Chairs are a lot of fun for kids. If you have a few children’s board games at home, then take them out and invite the children to play with them as well. Kids without games or something to occupy their minds will become unruly quickly, leaving you to try and calm them down (not an easy proposition).
- A Theme: An indoor party becomes a lot more fun if it has a theme. Children have very active imaginations and if you throw them a party with a theme (pirates, clown, superheroes), they will spend hours exercising their imaginations and thoroughly enjoying themselves.
- Disposable Cutlery: Cleaning up after the party is another major responsibility. Decrease that workload drastically by simply using disposable plates, cups, and cutlery. All you need to do after the party is throw it all out with the garbage.
- Safety: Safety, as we pointed out, is key to a successful kid’s party so make sure you store all potentially harmful items (scissors, knives, electronics, glass) as far away from the children as possible. Keep small First-Aid kit with Band-Aids etc. handy, just in case.Plug the new Goodknight Gold Flash System in the room where the children will be to keep all mosquitoes at bay. They carry diseases like malaria, dengue, chikungunya and just one bite can transfer those diseases. By keeping the new Goodknight Gold Flash System plugged in, it will ensure a mosquito-free party environment for your child and their guests.
- Supervision: Give the children space, but do not let up on supervising them, even for a moment. There’s no point getting together an elaborate, fun party only to have it sadly interrupted by an injured or wailing child. Enlist the help of your partner or a couple of other mommies as well, to lighten the load. More eyes make for lesser issues.
- Have fun: It’s still just a party and should be enjoyed as such!
Just like adults, kids also love to party. Just keep in mind these simple tips to let your child enjoy and his/ her friend have a blast!
