Children's parties are notoriously difficult to get right. You have a large number of hyper kids to entertain and they all know what a good party should be.
Do you go all out and hire a travelling circus for the day or are there some simpler options which still make the day one they will remember for years to come.
I have come up with 3 great party ideas for a simple yet exciting day:
#1 Take them Ten Pin Bowling:
Most, if not all ten pin bowling alleys cater for children's parties these days. You can often get special deals which include bowling, drinks, food etc for a fairly reasonable price. Kids absolutely love ten pin bowling and it more importantly it gives them a focused activity which keeps them occupied. Staff will also assist with serving food etc which is a brilliant help.
#2 Take Them To The Zoo:
Kids and animals. A perfect combination. They will be fully engaged with the Lions and Tigers (and go ape for the monkeys, excuse the pun) and most zoos are large enough that you will be able to spend virtually the whole day there. Ring ahead to ask catering staff to lay on balloons and a birthday card and you really will have a grrrrreat day out.
#3 Hire An Entertainer:
This one can really works wonders. What bunch of kids doesn't love a magician or a clown. Get some recommendations from people who have hired entertainers before and you are on easy street. The entertainer keeps the kids busy while you get a chance to relax for a while.
I hope you have found my tips for a great children's party helpful. Ten pin bowling, the zoo, or hiring an entertainer are all fairly inexpensive ways to keep a group of children occupied for a decent amount of time and is definitely something that will have them talking about your party for years to come.
