So your little one’s birthday is here or any other party occasion and there is no way you can let it go uneventful. An exciting birthday bash is something that your child awaits for a whole year. Your child is never going to be of the same age twice hence the birthday party too has to be as unique and special as they are.

A birthday party is more of a way to boost up the kid’s energy levels as well as to instill a sense of self esteem by making the entire day all about them and only them. It need not be a lavish one, if they are made to feel like a prince or a princess, even a small party would be more than sufficient.

By deciding a theme for the party you can make your work easier because it simplifies the process of organizing the food and the decorations. But keep in mind that the chosen theme is of the birthday boy/girl’s interest in fact it would be better if you discuss it with them first. Involve the child in the planning and preparations by allowing him/her in choosing the theme, the guest list, the food, the games and the return gifts. You can go according to the theme of the party with most of the things for the party but games.

You can make your own rules keeping the essence of the game in mind. For example, always keeping the brooms between the legs, limiting the number of turns a kid can have with the quaffles etc.

Boat races
