Each year there will be a new kid’s party craze. The majority of these will be huge for a few months and then fade without a trace. In South Korea, one new fad involves buying as many chips as possible and letting children gorge until they feel sick and want nothing more than to lie down cradling their stomachs. Whilst very few parents over here would ever consider such an option, knowing which the best parties will be and which will be fads or more trouble than they are worth can make a big difference.
Firstly, it is worth considering other parents before you make your choice. Could something you are choosing to do offend other parents, or cause problems for your child? Always be sure that every child and every parent will be happy with the games or excursions you have planned, and if possible avoid too much fast food as not only can this lead to children playing up more when fuelled by too many calories, but it can also lead to parents being less than impressed by how you looked after their kids.
The best parties will therefore be ones that are both fun and inoffensive. For example, visiting a venue such as Mad Science East Midlands offers a hugely enjoyable day out for children, whilst also being something that will be very informative in many different ways. This will please both children and adults alike and will ensure that you too get to enjoy yourself rather than constantly worrying about keeping a horde of children entertained.
Hiring children’s entertainers may also be a great way to keep children amused all day, whilst baking or cooking parties will also be a novel way to get kids doing something that is at once fun and practical.
Ultimately, whether you stay at home or choose science parties for kids, make sure that you will be pleasing both children and parents at the same time, and reducing your work load so that you get to have fun too.
