will solve the puzzles and follow the clues in the letters to discover the
location of the hidden gift!
My children love picking themes and planning a party around that
Pick the theme.
Some years, it will be obvious what theme your child wants for his or
her birthday. Two to three weeks before the birthday, start
talking asking questions. Your child may have ideas for a theme,
or you may have to make some suggestions.
Plan the activities.
Brainstorm ideas around the theme. There's no single plan to a
perfect party. Some years we have a few games and a craft, other
years there's just one main activity that takes up most of the
party. It's always a good idea to have a few short games or
craft in case things aren't working.
Set the number of guests.
Once your child has picked the theme and the activities, then you get
to set the number of guests. If you aren't sure, limit the
number of guests to your child's age. A four year old could
invite three friends. For sleepovers, divide that number by
2. An ten year old's sleepover party would have 5 kids.
Have your child design the invitations to match the party
Plan the food.
Think about the snacks and cake that would fit the theme. Let
your child come up with some suggestions. Try to include
favorite foods on the menu.
Often you just need to come up with a few suggestions and then let the
kids take over. Maybe have your child invite a special friend
(or someone who couldn't attend the actual party) come and help with
Enjoy the party.
Don't worry if things don't go according to plan, or some activities
get skipped. As long as your child is having fun, it will be a
birthday to remember.
