Organizing our children’s birthdays can sometimes be a logistical nightmare. It is so difficult to keep up to date with what they are all into and the sorts of things that they are interested in. So organizing a great birthday, that they will always remember, is no mean feat. However, there are some simple tricks to making sure that your child has a top birthday and that everything is well planned, organized and goes according to plan.
You’d be surprised how many birthdays turn into big disappointments due to invitations not being sent out. Therefore, if you’re throwing your child a party make sure you are both working together, right from the first moments, to draw up a solid guest list and then write-up the invitations and get them sent out as soon as possible.
With e-vites becoming so popular these days, it’s never been easier to send out party invitations and get rapid responses. So have a little fun with your child designing your party invitation online and then sending them out to all their friends.
Party or no party, you are going to need to give yourself a good amount of time to start thinking about the gifts you are wanting to get for your child. Listen to the hints that your child has been dropping and see if you can’t draw up a list of the things he or she wants, from there you can pick and choose the gifts you’d like to give to them for their birthday.
Maybe your child likes personalized and humorous gifts in which case why not think about customized bobbleheads where you can give him or her a truly lifelike figure of themselves doing something entertaining or funny. Or perhaps they are really into a certain sport and you can organize for them and some friends to go and watch a match or game together. Perhaps music is their thing, in which case why not look into local music concerts and events that are happening in your local area and treat them and a few pals to a night of music and dancing.
So you have the gift and the party, if your child is wanting one, all sorted, so you’re feeling pretty much on top of it all. But don’t forget that birthdays should also be a time for the family to spend some quality time together. So think of interesting and fun ways that you can spend time together, as a family, celebrating your child’s birthday. Think of things that your children might enjoy, like a trip to the zoo or a trip to the cinema to watch the new 3D Pixar animation. Perhaps you can take a day trip out somewhere you’ve never been before and have a wander around a new place together. Do some research on the sorts of places that will be fun for children so that you can throw in a couple of surprises along the way to ensure that this is an extra special birthday that your child will always remember.
