If you have the task of planning a kids party, you’ll have your work cut out. Once you know roughly the age of the kids and the numbers who plan to attend, you can start creating a plan. Here are five kids party ideas guaranteed to go down a storm.
- Set A Fancy Dress Theme
Whether you are having the party at home or renting a venue, you can get things off to a great start by simply setting a fancy dress theme. Buy or download jazzy invites and make sure all the kids wear fancy dress. This creates a great atmosphere for no expense or effort on your part.
- Colour-Coordinate Food And Drink
You don’t have to spend a fortune or branded treats. Regular cheap food and drink will look far better if you simply colour-coordinate it. For example, a Spider-Man themed party would have blue and red soft drinks, while a ‘Frozen’ themed bash could have pink, white and red drinks. You can use coloured icing, food dye and coloured soft drinks to link food and drink to the theme of the party.
- Create A Candy Buffet
Candy buffets are taking the world of corporate parties by storm but they are also great for kids’ parties. So-called candy buffets are lavishly decorated tables stacked with an assortment of candy. You simply need to choose a backdrop, some table decorations, containers, scoops and tongs. Most buffets have a certain theme and should be a focal point of the party. Kids obviously love candy, but even the parents will dig in if you make the table appealing enough.
- Rent A Concessions Machines
Concessions machines such as hot dog stands and popcorn machines go down a treat at any party. These machines can be rented for the day to give all the kids the fun of going to a fair. Renting a popcorn machine is cheap as you don’t need the expense of paying for someone to operate it. The popcorn is supplied in little packs to give you perfect, fresh popcorn, even if you don’t know what you are doing.
- Hire A Ride
Whereas a clown or magician will just stay for a few hours, the same money gets you a ride hire in Melbourne such as a bouncy castle and it will last all day. If your home or rented venue has sufficient space, a ride will help transform any kids’ party from drab to fabulous. Time-tested classic rides such as the mini Ferris wheel, the ‘Cha Cha’, the Hurricane, Flying Elephants and even dodgem cars make the perfect attraction at any kids’ party.
