Birthday Party for Toddlers/ Preschoolers

Jun 15, 2008
By the time you finish reading this, you will be on your way to organizing and planning birthday parties for preschoolers.

Children who are still preschoolers have limitations in what they can do. It is easier for parents to plan birthday parties for older children as it is easier for them to understand activity rules, unlike preschool children. These children also have short attention span.

The key to planning birthday party activities for preschoolers is to keep the activities simple and to keep the children busy.

What makes a party a successful one? In this case, a back up plan is essential. This back up plan comes into action when an activity that you have initially planned doesn't turn out well. A good back up plan is something like a movie or a coloring table.

If you are planning to have these activities, you need to set up all the activities before the party starts. You need to make sure that you get all the supplies ready. This is essential because you do not want to keep these preschoolers waiting.

Good activities for preschoolers are activities that do not require a lot of explanation. They should also be fun and allow the children to do it by themselves. Preschoolers tend to be very independent so choosing activities that require little parental involvement will be the best choice.

There are several good activates available for parties. Some of them are bubble blowing, face painting, bean bag toss and also water balloon. These activities give the children freedom to use their creativity.

The last thing you need is a preschooler destroying the party. You should keep the activities flowing as these children hate to wait. if you don't keep them busy they will find a way to keep themselves busy and that may be a big problem.

if you think that a big group is difficult to handle, you can consider breaking them up into groups. by doing this, it will reduce waiting time and also keep them busy. The backup activity can be used during intervals.

For activities, like blowing bubbles, you should be sure to buy enough so that everyone can blow bubbles at the same time. This will help to reduce arguments and allow everyone to participate.

Some activities can be very messy, especially bubble blowing and water bombs. Well, if you are thinking of including these activities, you need to make sure that you inform their parents so that they will bring a new set of clothes.

Now that you know this, you should take into consideration that these kids like to act like their grownups. They want to be independent but you have to make sure that what they are doing is within their capability.
