Now that fall is in full swing and the warm weather is winding down in Toronto, the days of outdoor parties and backyard celebrations are behind us. We know that it can be hard to think of fun and creative ways to celebrate your kids birthday indoors without getting too stressed out with all the logistics, planning, and cleanup involved.
Here are some at-home party tips to help you plan an enjoyable and memorable birthday for your child:
Strive for easy cleanup
Planning a kids birthday party is enough work on its own, so you want to do your best to minimize post-party cleanup. Do your best to bring in entertainers or caterers who will take care of the cleanup for you so long as it falls within your budget.
Incorporate the season
The weather can be unpredictable this time of year so if you want to avoid last minute plan changes and minimize disappointment, indoor parties are your best bet. Rather than thinking of the cold weather as a party pooper, use the season to your advantage; take advantage of the abundance of fall decorations in store, or if your child’s birthday party falls close to Halloween, consider a “spooky” themed celebration.
Plan creative activities
Planning activities ahead of time is the best way to ensure your kids birthday party is a success. While adults don’t need constant stimulation, kids enjoy participating in the action so they don’t get bored. Depending on the age range of your guests, popular ideas include arts and crafts, painting, and cake decorating.
If you live in the Toronto area and are looking to plan an entertaining and delicious kids birthday celebration with no prep work or cleanup, contact Chocolate Tales Kids for a chocolate making party that comes to you.
