Children love birthday parties.Don’t we all?That’s why
Don’t we all?That’s why it is a rule in our family.Part is a must.Small or big is immaterial.Whats important is we must celebrate.Even when we want to cut down on costs, but want her to enjoy the simple things in life, we still have a party.For a five-year-old little girl, having friends over and eating cake is a party.That’s how simple some of her birthday party has been.
My little angels know all about real fun.That’s why arranging her birthday parties have been hassle free for me till date.Whenever I arrange a party it’s my struggle. I don’t want to be wasteful and I don’t want her to miss 0ut on all the fun things.The easiest way is to have a discussion with the little one in charge.She gives me a kiss and says
Mommy we just want to play on birthday .
Now I get stuck.I know her list also has some friends, whom she will end up ignoring in the company of her besties.So what we need are party games.When I want to make a birthday party fun I make it fun for the birthday girl!
Favourite party games for 5year olds
- Pin the tail on the donkey.Always a favorite and gets loads of laughs
- Mental maths .Short quick ones.
- General knowledge quizzes.Keep in mind the age group of the little ones.Obviously with prizes!
- Treasure hunts with clues.Always popular.I love to participate too.
- Let them watch a favorite movie together, with popcorn is a wonderful way to keep the party under control and still fun.Then ask them questions from the movie they watched.
Food for 5-year-olds
Food and refreshments are strictly age appropriate .But chocolate cake is a universal favourite .But not too sweet My favourite , in fact, our favourite cake comes from #Cakes a shop with several branches all over Kolkata.Their southern Avenue shop is single handily responsible for my pregnancy weight gain.
The catering by 6 Ballygunj Place is superb, with an option for live grill station(which needs a watchful eye with kids around) but always fun.
Other options which keep flying inside my brain.
- Outdoor party if you have a protected garden area or covered terrace.
- Go away for a family trip.(My daughter will still need a birthday party when we come back.)
- Visit those who need our help and have a party with them.I hope one day we will do this with Rai.
My brain is buzzing with ideas which you will read all about soon.But for now, I am late for getting my post published for #MondayMommyMoments.
