Do you remember the last birthday party you threw for any of your kids? Did you spend a lot of money on it? We certainly expect you did not. Well, this week we have been posting about birthday party (decorations, beverages and meals for the kids, to do list, themes, etc.) but we cannot stop thinking about: when is the perfect time to begin celebrating your kids’ birthdays?
The perfect answer for a new mom would be their first year, but wait. What would a 3rd times mom say about this? We are finding several answers to our question, anytime should be ok to start celebrating your babies’ day of birth; however, it does not hurt if we take a look at some details:
Guests: How many people did you, or are you planning to invite, if it is their first year celebration, we are sure that your party will be full of grown adults, basically your friends who feel happy that you have been a parent for a good year already. Think about it: Is it a good idea to start celebrating that early?
Place: Where are you going to set up the party and is anyone helping with the decoration? Is it going to be your house? It will be a messy after party situation.
Theme: since this is a toddler’s party, are you using their favorite cartoon? Or, will you choose any theme in particular? If you go with option one, your kids might love it.
We could continue with a large list of activities (games, food, music, clown shows, etc) but we don’t want you to worry about it until you have the real chance to throw your kids birthday party. Take into consideration that when growing up kids are not interested in all minor details such as their birthday party decoration, but what they must care about are balloons, presents and a big cake. Also remember that it’s clever to begin with this type of “ritual” once they have turned at least 4 years (prior to that age, they may not remember what happen). You don’t need to spend a lot of money on a birthday party; we found some good ideas on how to organize a birthday party with a low budget.
