How to Organize a Do-It-Yourself Children’s Party

Posted on Aug 14 2013 - 4:32am by Leola Schamber

Do-it-yourself children’s parties are fun. Your creativity comes out, as you plan and create everything from scratch. It allows you to apply your own or the celebrant’s ideas and theme preferences, giving it a personal touch. You’ll also have a sense of satisfaction after working on all these by yourself.

Birthdays don’t have to be costly, so here are some things you can do on your own:

Invitations

Browse the Internet to find an online template and print it. Buy cardboards, specialty paper, glue, coloured pens, and other stationery materials. Cut the cardboard to your preferred size, glue the printed template, and design it using the coloured pens. Have enough space for the necessary details, such as time, date, and theme.

Birthday Cake

If you have an oven at home, then it’s time to unleash your baking skills. Decide on the flavour of the cake and browse for recipes online. Look for a cake decorating supply store to get a wide selection of toppings and design materials. Edible images are also popular because you can print any design and eat it as it is.

Decorations

Choose a theme to design the materials. For example, an athletic theme can have different sports equipment as decoration. Inflate orange and white balloons then use a black marker to draw lines, so you can create a soccer ball, baseball, or basketball. Use long strips of crepe paper to make a soccer goal or basketball ring.

Loot Bags

Instead of using plastic, buy paper bags as an eco-friendly alternative. Design it according to the theme and fill it with sweets, small toys, and a souvenir. Make the souvenir personalised, so your child’s guests will remember the happy moments they had during the party.

Interactive Games

Games differ depending on age and gender. If you’re looking for an interactive activity, designing a cupcake is a good example. It’s ideal for children who want to be a little patissiers. They can use cupcake sprinkles, frostings, and other flavourings depending on the design they want to achieve.

A do-it-yourself children’s party is fulfilling because you save money, while enjoying the process itself. Search online for ideas, supplies, and cake decorating supply stores to help you.
