Having trouble deciding on a venue for your young child or your tween’s birthday party? Choosing a place to throw a party for kids is something most parents only think about once a year, and for very good reason. The truth is that kids’ parties can be exhausting and if you’re like most parents, you will be crying for a holiday after the day is over. Yes, kids’ parties are hard work, which is why venues that cater to kids exist. But with so many different venues scattered throughout South Africa, it’s hard to make a decision on what to choose. With so much to keep in mind – follow these two important tips and you will be well on your way to making someone very happy on their big day.
What Does Your Child or Tween Want?
While we know that we want nothing more than to see our kids having the best time of their lives on their big day, what we find fun and what they find fun is not always the same. The most important tip to follow when choosing a venue is to go with what your child wants. Yes, personalities and passions differ, and while some kids love sports and adrenalin pumping games, there are others that prefer games that stimulate the mind. Rather consult with them first, than have a disappointed and tearful child on your hands. However, should they be unsure of what they want, provide them with options.
What Type of Activities Will Be On Offer?
When a group of children arrive at a venue, they expect to have a brilliant time, and if they don’t, you’re guaranteed to hear all about it. So, with that being said, choosing the right venue can make or break a party. As the ideal place for allowing kids to unleash their imagination, go wild and make a lot of noise, make sure that the venue can offer the right type of activities for everyone who is invited. Whether it’s survivor types of activities, go-kart racing, zip lining, paintball, or quad biking activities – nothing feeds a kid’s hunger for excitement more than adrenalin-pumping activities. So, whatever you do, don’t disappoint!
Throwing a kids’ party is certainly no easy feat, but it doesn’t have to be exhausting and stressful. A lifeboat for many parents, choosing a kids’ party venue is a brilliant way to leave all the planning and fun up to the experts. But before you make your choice, be sure to consult with them first and choose the venue according to the type of activities on offer. Should you get it right, your child will be the talk of the school playground for weeks to come.
