At last, the summer season has finally arrived, and with it comes much more time spent outdoors in our gardens. For kids it’s certainly their favorite time of the year.  Because they get to spend time playing in the garden, and can spend all day blowing off steam.

Why not make your kids really happy in that case.  Organize a kid’s garden party for them and a few friends. Whether you have a summer birthday, or you just enjoy treating your kids to a nice day in the garden with their friends, here are our kid’s backyard party tips.  Use them to help create a great day for enjoying your outdoor space.

Invitations

Why not let your child help you send out some pretty, summer invitations to a few friends.  Furthermore, online e-vites are now a really simple and fun way to get invitations out.  Additionally, they are also a good way for your children to help develop their computer skills.

Food

The food is a huge part of any garden party.  So, whether it’s for adults or for kids, good food is the backbone of any good shindig. For kid’s garden party food, little sandwiches, cup cakes, chips and mini quiches are great ideas.  Also, sausage rolls will help keep kids happy until dinner. Make sure food is covered over, to prevent it being attacked by bugs and flies. Leftovers will be good for nibbling on later.  You may even be able to set out another spread the next day.

Garden Games

Next, make sure you put some thought into the types of games the children can play.  Having three to four different games lined up is a great way  to make sure no one gets bored.

Better Safe Than Sorry

When children spend time playing in the garden they are inevitably going to be surrounded by bugs and insects. Of course, most of the time they are completely harmless.  However, you should still have a few sting or bite remedies close at hand.  You know best the types of insects and bugs in your area, so think about the types of insects that could pose a problem for you.

You will need to have the best remedies or medicines needed to deal with insect bites and stings.  So, check out homeremedyshop.com.

Kids Party Ideas: Chuck E Cheese Party

kids birthday party ideas

Looking for kids party ideas?  Look no further, call your local Chuck E Cheese?  First, Look at this face.  I was sorting through pictures for my scrapbooks and I came across these pictures from one of Xavier’s parties.  I thought I would share a few from our Chuck E Cheese party.  The kids had a great time and so did the parents.  As a matter of fact, out of the 9 birthday parties that we thrown for this little guy, this one is in the top 5.

Most importantly, I love parties where the work for the parents is minimal.  Luckily, it was just that at Chuck E Cheese.  There were lots of activities, pizza, a dance with the Big Cheese, and no clean up.  It doesn’t get any better than that.  There was a snack bar for parents to purchase other food if they didn’t have an appetite for pizza.  I must recommend their salads, they are wonderful.  We had the Superman Cake made and we purchased the Superman Tablecloth at Party City.

We had a hostess assigned to our tables who take care of serving the food, coordinating the dance with the Big Cheese, lighting the cake and all the other activities around the Rock Star’s table.  It was nice to be able to take pictures and just relax.

Because Xavier loves Spider-Man so much, it was the theme for the birthday cake.  We had this cake made at Farm Fresh.  They did an excellent job decorating it, and it was delicious.  I love that store for other reasons too.  For example, their deli is wonderful when you need a quick meal.  The kids love their chicken, and so do I.  Lets not leave out their fresh produce.  I digressed didn’t I.

So, if you’re unsure of how many guests you will have or you have a set budget, I suggest that you check out the packages available.  You can plan the party around the package.  Actually, Chuck E Cheese offers 4 packages:  Star, Super Star, Mega Super Star and Play More, Eat More .  We choose the Mega Super Star package, which included pizza, ice cream cups, tokens, a goody bag and a Rock Star cup for the party guests.   Additionally, the tables were reserved for two hours, which was sufficient time for everyone to enjoy the activities, eat and go back to the activities.

We had a great photo opportunity here, Xavier is dancing with Chuck E Cheese.  The look on his face was worth a million bucks.

Next, he had so much fun blowing out the candles on his cake.  However, we did have a mishap.  The hostess set her hair on fire lighting the cake.  Thank goodness it was quickly extinguished and she wasn’t hurt. She didn’t miss a beat, she served the cake and ice cream as if nothing happened.  We gave her a hand for handling it like a pro.  Most people at the tables didn’t even realize that her hair was on fire.  Imagine that!

Additionally, they have the Ticket Blaster.  It gives the Rock Star an opportunity to catch tickets, which can be redeemed for games.  I wasn’t sure how he would feel about being enclosed in a booth, but he did well.  He’s such a brave little guy.

Finally, we ended the party with the kids using the remaining tokens and tickets in the games area.  Somehow, Xavier lost his shoes.  But he didn’t think twice about finding them.  Thankfully, we were able to locate them before dragging him out and heading home.  Best part of the day, he totally enjoyed his birthday party and his friends.  Did I mention, he still takes his shoes off at every opportunity.

In conclusion, I hope you like our kids party ideas.  I would highly recommend having a birthday party for your child at Chuck E. Cheese.  Just as importantly, the service was excellent and all of the children left happily exhausted.  For parents, you can sit back and relax.  Because there’s no cleanup!  It doesn’t get better than that.

Most parents know how great birthdays can be for little children.  Many parents also go out of their way to make it as special as possible. After all, you do want your kids to enjoy themselves on their special day.  And achieving that is often a matter of ensuring that certain things are in line for the day.  If your child is in need of an extra special birthday – perhaps because it is an important one, such as their tenth – then there is plenty that you can do to ensure that it goes off as well as possible.  If you are unsure how to do that, then read on.  In this post, we will take a look at a few kid’s birthday ideas to ensure that you get your kid’s birthday just right.

The Right Presents

It is important to teach your children while young that receiving presents is not the most important thing. Still, on their birthday you do want to treat them to something special.  So, it is worth putting some effort into getting there gift right.  If you are lucky, you will know exactly what they want.  If that’s the case, you can be sure there will be laughter and joy rather than tears.  It helps to shop around early, and perhaps ask for some help from a family member or one of their friends. You should also think about the card.  Getting the right birthday card is surprisingly important as well. You could even use an online card maker to create one yourself.  This will have the positive bonus of being personal and genuine compared to a normal card.

The Perfect Party

If you are throwing a party for your child, early planning is probably a good idea. The earlier you get started, the more likely it is that you will throw the ideal bash.  There is plenty to bear in mind when you are throwing a birthday party for a child. First, you will need to prepare plenty of food.  Keep in mind that you will be feeding both children and adults.  Therefore that is important to remember if you want to keep everyone happy.  You also need to make sure that the decorations are appropriate and that you have enough.  Free enough time for other concerns as the party date approaches.  Throwing the right party will ensure that your children will really enjoy their day.
