Planning a winter party can be so much stress. But it doesn’t have to be. While kids’ birthdays during this time of the year may not come with multiple outdoor activities to choose from such as the playgrounds, parks and pools, there are still some creative ways to plan a cool winter party. The important thing is for the kids to have fun. Choose activities that your kids love even if it means bringing the outdoors inside.
An ice skating theme
Throw the coolest party in town during the coldest season by choosing this fun-filled party theme. With an ice skating theme, you don’t have to actually go out ice skating and worry about sliding or slipping on ice. Save the embarrassment for later. This is a theme you can pull off with no ice skates. Simply use decorations to bring out the theme to life. You can have some skating goodies in a station and paper skates as well. Kids usually enjoy such kind of stuff. Kids can get busy crafting their own paper skates. You can have some party favors as well that complement the theme. For instance, you can get some cute mittens for the kids to carry home. Think of stylish and practical party favors for the kids at this time of the year.
Penguin Party theme
Penguins are an excellent choice for a winter party theme. You can make cute treats in the shape of a penguin. This can be as simple as some cupcakes with penguin toppers. Play around with the colors in order to bring out a fun and bright environment. You can even include the penguins in your invitations and ask the rest of the kids to dress in a way that complements the theme. Decorate the venue with some penguin balloons. You can buy them or make DIYs and even allow the kids to go home with one of them. Think outside the box when organizing a penguin themed party. Don’t be afraid to use bright and bold colors. If you’re not sure how to pull this off, look for ideas online. You may also get party vendors who are willing to help you bring it all together.
The sleepover parties
Would you consider throwing the classic slumber party for your kids this winter? Most parents wouldn’t think twice about a sleepover party simply because they don’t want to get exhausted after dealing with too many kids. To avoid the stress of dealing with kids, keep the guest list as low as you can. We would recommend under 5 kids. This is actually a great way to save if you don’t have a lot of cash to throw a huge party for your child. After all, most kids love the idea of having their friends come for a sleepover. You can let the kids play and have dinner together then do something special before they go to bed. You can either watch a movie or make some handmade decorations. There’s plenty to love about sleepover parties during the cold season. Small parties are less involving plus you get to save on items like the party favors and food.
Import low cost entertainment
When it’s cold and you don’t feel like going out for some outdoor fun, one great idea would be to bring in some low-cost entertainment. This is actually one of the easiest ways to save money and still throw a fantastic birthday party for your child. You can look for adult entertainers who are well trained and certified to perform in kids’ parties. We can keep kids of all ages well entertained so you don’t have to worry about what they’ll do next. Structured activities really work well for kids’ parties because they often don’t know what to do when they’re idle. Remember you can’t expect kids to stay indoors and chat all day long without getting bored. Performers allow you to keep all the kids involved in any activity that is currently taking place. What’s even more is that it doesn’t have to be a budget-breaker. We can provide performers who suit your budget and needs.
Why not throw a cooking party for your child’s winter birthday? Cooking parties can be really fun for kids. The trick is to make the activity as hands-on as possible. Kids love fooling around with certain recipes especially if they involve cheese, chocolates and cupcakes. It’s a great way to offer fun and an opportunity for kids to learn how to make their own food. Use it as an opportunity to also introduce healthy ingredients to the kids. Since kids love pizzas, think of making unique and colorful toppings which are healthy alternatives to what they’re used to eating. They can also make chicken nuggets and participate in stirring their own dipping sauces. If you choose to make cupcakes, kids would love to decorate them. To make this work out well for you, plan in advance and set up stations with all the ingredients that the kids will need. Avoid kitchen tools that may be unsafe for kids and ensure the cooking space is clear of clutter.
How about making unique crafts such as bracelets with the kids? The best part about giving kids an opportunity to make crafts is that they’ll learn something new. You can even help the kids to design friendship bracelets to give their friends. Ensure the items you buy which will be used to make different crafts are safe for kids of all ages. If you’ll be having toddlers at the party, it may not be a good idea to have small items that they can easily swallow and choke on. Remember safety is key when dealing with kids.
There are so many unique ideas on winter parties for kids. Try out any of the above and don’t forget to hire our reliable performers if you want your kids to stay entertained throughout the party.
