The Do’s and Don’ts of Throwing a Child’s Party

Sk8ter’s Paradise is the best place in town to throw a child’s party, but you may not be aware of all that actually goes into throwing a child’s party if this is your first child or you have never done it before. Here are a couple of Do’s and Don’ts to throwing a child’s party that you may not know. Happy Birthday

  1. You DO want to make sure your child has fun: This seems obvious, but often times the parent gets caught up in keeping up with the Joneses, so to speak, and forgets what the child actually wants. It is okay to forego the $100 cake from the boutique bakery for the $25 one at your local grocery store. Your child will probably not know the difference.
  2. You DON’T want to invite too many children: The general rule is age + 1, and although often ignored, it is a rule for a reason. If your child is five-years-old, inviting his entire class, plus the soccer team, and his Sunday school class will be overwhelming for him. Pick 6 of his friends that he actually likes and plays with and invite them.
  3. DO involve your child in the planning: By about age seven, your child knows what he or she likes, so allow them to participate in planning the theme! Ask for their preferences and color choices. This will allow them to feel important and part of the process.
  4. DON’T expect most people to RSVP: This is just a fact that the party mom has to accept. Most of the guests will not RSVP. There are ways to encourage them to do so, but even still, expect that most will not.
