Disney parties make birthdays magical for children
February 17, 2010
For very young kids, like those under the age of ten, brainstorm kids party themes.
One way to come up with a plan is to use their favorite Disney movie as the center of your bash, and pick up as many party decorations as you can get your hands on. For example, if your daughter loves "Sleeping Beauty," host a Disney princess party complete with a "Sleeping Beauty" birthday cake, pink table cloths, napkins and paper plates and pleny of pink and white balloons.
The idea is ideal for young girls, who will delight in all of the themed party supplies and fondly remember their birthday party for years to come.
For boys, a mickey mouse party is a fun Disney party option.
Don't forget to send the Disney invitations
Though it's tempting to make a phone call to the parents of the children that your son or daughter is inviting to their birthday party, or simply send out a mass email, sending out Disney invitations will make the event special for the guest of honor and all of his or her classmates.
Children will revel in receiving something in the mail, and the themed invitation will be sure to get all of the young guests excited about the party.
Keep them entertained with games
Once you get all of the tiny revelers herded into the party space, keep the group organized by engaging them in planned party activities based on the theme of the party. Take a walk down the game aisle of your favorite kid's store to see if there are any special games based specifically on your theme.
For example, if you're hosting a Disney princess party, the classic game "Pretty Pretty Princess" might be the perfect addition to your fete.
Make the Birthday cake special
Whether you choose to buy a themed cake or attempt to bake one yourself, all that really matters is that it comes it the birthday boy or girl's favorite flavor (and that you serve it with ice cream, of course).
After the kids enjoy their cake, keep them calm and relaxed by popping a Disney movie into the DVD player before their parent's arrive to pick them up.
Though it can be exhausting to manage a large group of children and keep them entertained, seeing the smile on your son or daughter's face will make all of your time and effort worth while at the end of the day.
