Birthdays are an exciting occasion for all grade school kids, as it is an opportunity to have fun and celebrate with close friends and family, and feel more grown-up. As the parent of a young daughter, you are likely to want her to know how special she is to you, especially on her birthday. However, with kids’ birthday parties seeming to become ever more extravagant, you can quickly become overwhelmed when planning your own daughter’s birthday. To help you out, here are some tips for how you can make sure that your young daughter has a magical birthday.
Throw a themed birthday party
Kids love to use their imagination and pretend that they are different things during their play sessions. You could throw a birthday party that is themed to one of your daughter’s favorite interests to ignite her imagination and encourage play amongst the other children present. For example, mermaids are popular with little girls, so you could throw a mermaid themed party during which your daughter and her friends dress up as mermaids and enjoy the birthday tea in a room decorated like a secret lagoon.
Alternatively, your daughter might be a huge football fan, in which case you can ask guests to come wearing their favorite team’s shirt and host a penalty shoot-out in the back garden.
Finding the right birthday present for your daughter can be difficult and require hours of shopping. You want to be sure that whatever you get is appropriate for her age while also bringing a smile to her face. The answer lies with the internet, as you have access to online shops all over the world offering the perfect gifts for girls. For example, an arts and crafts kit is sure to get her creative mind flowing and keep her absorbed for hours, while a ‘decorate your own water bottle’ set will keep her hydrated and stylish.
What little girl’s birthday is complete without a delicious birthday cake? If she is having a themed birthday party, choose a cake that fits in with this theme – an aqua-colored cake decorated with edible seashells for a mermaid theme, or a cake that looks like a football for a football party. Check with the parents of the children who will be attending the party whether they have any specific dietary requirements. You can then find a birthday cake that suits these, such as a delicious gluten free birthday cake, to ensure that everyone can enjoy a slice.
Who gets an invite to a birthday party can be a huge deal for grade school kids, so consider carefully who you invite. Ask your daughter to make a list of all the friends she would like to celebrate with – this can also be a good way of learning about any fallings out. You could also invite close family members, such as grandparents, to make the day even more special.
