Pick a theme
Every decision comes easier when you are revolving around certain theme. There are many ideas online that you can use if you can’t think of any. For example: Harry Potter Theme, Builder Bob, Frozen, Little Mermaid….
Let’s say a mess is a theme? To you, it’s just another Saturday. But, really, this idea—devoted to splatters and spills (or, if you’re brave, dirt and goo)—will make you the coolest mom on the planet. You can throw out the party-prep perfectionism (iced rosettes just so). Stock up on Silly String, set out paint (washable—you haven’t totally lost your mind), and serve food with graffiti-style toppings. Then let the kids go wild. As if they wouldn’t, anyway.
Use a balloons
A lot of balloons! Kids just love them. Make balloon animals, use number balloons for age or letter balloons to spell your kids name. Fill them with air and put them all around the floor(or backyard) or fill them with helium and put them on strings so they wouldn’t fly away.
Make themed favors
Try a personalized craft activity; it eliminates the need for hired entertainment and takes the place of a costly goody bag. “I type ‘blank’ or ‘do it yourself’ on party-supply sites, to see what comes up,” you’ll pick something related to your theme—whether it’s plain tote bags or white umbrellas.
Know your numbers
Remember that old “your child’s age equals the number of guests” rule of inviting? Forget it. You need enough kids to play games and sit around a table. For preschoolers, try eight to 10 guests. If your space is small, remember that some parents will remain party-side with their tots. Many school-aged kids invite all the girls or all the boys in their class, but eight to 12 guests is ideal.
Make homemade pinata
You can make one in about 30 minutes. Take a big balloon and inflate it, then take some flour paste mixed with water and cover your balloon. Then take newspaper pieces and dip them in pasta then stick it to balloon. Let it dry then add one more layer for firmness. Leave a 2” hole opened. When it’s all dry decorate it with feathers, fringe garlands or whatever you like. Add candy trough the opening and hang your pinata at it’s place. Enjoy!
Time it right
Best time to make kids party is when kids are fresh. That means somewhere between 10 am and 1 pm. It would be ideal that party lasts for 2 hours (two and a half tops). Three or four hours are just exhausting for everyone.
