    Mistakes to Avoid when Planning Your Child's Birthday

    Last updated 1 day 11 hours ago

    When planning a kid’s birthday party, it is important to choose a location and activity that your child and his or her friends will appreciate. Use this guide to figure out what not to do when planning this kind of event:

    Inviting Too Many People

    You should not feel obligated to invite the entire class. The more people you invite, the more the party will cost. It is also harder to keep track of all of the kids during the party if you invite too many people. Try to think about the maximum number of kids you want to invite and do not make your guest list any larger than that number. You might even want to cap the party at just a few kids.

    Forgetting to Ask About Food Allergies and Preferences

    If you are going to serve food at the party, you have to ask parents about any potential food allergies or food preferences that might keep some kids from getting something to eat at the party. You might want to add a line to your invitations that asks parents to list any information about food restrictions so you can inform the kid’s party place about foods to avoid. This way, you know that your party will have something for everyone to eat.

    Skimping on Activity Planning

    Young kids tend to have short attention spans. If you do not plan enough activities, they might get bored or antsy. You should try to choose a children’s birthday party venue that has plenty of activities for the kids to enjoy throughout the duration of the party. This ensures that they will stay busy and entertained until it is time for everyone to go home.

    Answering Common Questions About Kids' Birthday Invitations

    Last updated 12 days ago

    Once you find the ideal kid’s party place for your child’s next birthday, it is time to focus on the invitations. Keep reading for answers to some of the most common questions about choosing and sending invitations to ensure you have a great turnout at the event:

    When Should I Send the Invitations?

    After you figure out how many kids you want to invite to the event, you can start to organize the invitations. You should send them out at least two weeks before the party. If you send them more than four weeks before the party, though, people might forget about the event. Stick to the two-week range to ensure that everyone gets the invitation with enough time to make plans to attend the party.

    What Information Needs to Be on the Invitation?

    The invitation should have enough information to inform people about the when and where of the party. List the date, time, and location of the event. You might want to include a small map or directions to the kid’s birthday party place so everyone can find it easily. It is also a good idea to list information about whether or not parents are invited to the party, if you plan to serve food, and how long the event will last.

    Do the Invitations Need to Match the Party Theme?

    If you decided to use a theme for your party, finding invitations that work with it will help you create a cohesive element for the party. You do not have to choose invitations that match the theme, however. You can make your own invitations at home or buy some premade options from the store.

    Tips for Dealing with a Picky Eater

    Last updated 1 month ago

    Dealing with a picky eater can be stressful; as a parent, it is important to provide your child with a complete diet, but there is often some resistance. Fortunately, there are a few things you can do in this situation. Read on for a few tips for dealing with a picky eater.

    Get Your Child Involved

    Children tend to be more receptive to different foods when their opinions are taken into consideration. When you go grocery shopping, have your picky eater help you choose what to buy. You can also get your child involved in the process of preparing the food. When children contribute to the production of the meal, they are more likely to be interested in eating. When deciding what to eat, give your child a few choices to choose between rather than asking an open-ended question.

    Introduce New Foods

    It is important to introduce new foods slowly and carefully. Pair new foods with foods that you know your child likes rather than introducing several new foods at once, and keep the new foods to smaller portions at first. Keep in mind that your child will be more likely to try new foods when he or she is hungry, so try starting a meal with a new kind of food. Remember that the process of acquiring a new taste may take time, so be patient with your child. Set a good example by trying new foods and describing the experience to your picky eater.

    Be Creative and Fun

    Children are more open to new things when fun is incorporated. You can encourage your child to eat new foods by cutting foods into fun shapes or give new foods funny names to keep your child interested. Finally, invent new foods with your kids and try out new flavor combinations.
