A children’s party needs to have different activities for children to have fun. After all, the celebration is for the birthday child and, to top it off, also for their invited friends. Therefore, it is essential to think about entertainment options, such as games, recreation, and distractions to make the little ones feel comfortable.
A good starting point is to think about types of activities by age group, which should make it easier to list recreations that suit the most varied ages of children. Here are some suggestions below, considering an age margin, which you can fully customize according to your confirmed guest list.
0 To 3 Years
Babies and young children need special care. And they are, in most cases, under the care of their parents at all times. Still, it is nice to have activities for this age group to enjoy the moments of the birthday child’s party with their children.
Some play options:
- Baby space with rubber mat for free movement;
- Sound objects (sanitized, non-sharp, and cannot be swallowed);
- Joyful songs inappropriate volume and relevant to the children’s age.
4 To 7 Years
Older children tend not to have the same interests as younger ones. Therefore, they need to be stimulated with activities more suited to their age. Think of games that can capture their attention while they feel part of the celebration and create interactions with the other children at the party.
Consider these options:
- Drawings to color;
- Board games;
- puppet theater;
- Carts and dolls.
8 To 12 Years
Older children need something more creative and developed for their age. They are not used to having fun and being entertained with very simplistic options that are not as playful as their age demands. Therefore, consider offering options that capture their attention with interactive technologies or attractions that allow them to use the space for free movement and increased energy consumption.
We indicate these options:
- Electronic games;
- Specialized workshops for cooking and making handicrafts;
- Ball pool, trampoline, and slides;
- Magic show.
Just know that, like children’s party decor, this professional recreation option carries an extra cost. Take this into account in the matter of your budget. Other than that, remember that children’s party houses already include the possibility of the celebration having entertainers or even a magic show in their plans. It depends on the taste of whoever holds the party and whoever is having the party especially party when choosing a party tent.
