TINY TOTS PARTIES
Short and sweet is the golden rule for 3-5 year olds. Opt for lunchtime, as children are less tired. It’s best if some parents stay.
Structure the party by:
Organising games for the first half-hour. Traditional favourites like sleeping lions and musical statues are always popular. Play nursery rhyme tapes/CDs.
Break for lunch, cake and singing happy birthday. Put wrapped slices of cake in the party bags to take home.
After the break, it’s singalong and dancing fun!
Allow 15 minutes at the end of the party for children to wind down.
PARTIES FOR 5-7 YEAR OLD
Children of this age are very boisterous! Keep control by:
Limiting guests to one for each of your child’s years and enlist another adult to help.
Be outside, particularly with boys’ parties. Tire them out with activities like rounders, five-a-side football and treasure hunts!
Fancy-dress themes are popular with this age group – Pirates, Fairies, Action Man and other Cartoon and Fairy tale characters.
Hold your own mini-disco, with party music and lots of dancing.
PARTIES FOR 8 YEARS PLUS
Older children tend to invite a few close friends. Ideas for this age group include:
A trip to see the latest film or show. Then back home for a pizza!
Arts and crafts parties are good for creative children! Pick a theme like mask or jewellery making.
Sleepovers are popular. Limit numbers to five friends, lay mattress on the floor and don’t expect much sleep!
Hire the latest video release, and turn your living room into a private cinema. Serve ice-cream and popcorn half way through.
