Rehearse directions, time activities….meet with success!

When practiced in advance giving directions at the party will be easy and natural. Practice explaining all directions for each game and activity with your child in advance. When preparing for your child’s birthday party plan to do a run-through or rehearsal of all games, activities, and craft projects. This is a win-win situation for parent and child. You will know how long each activity will take by observing your child doing it. Write down how long it takes from the moment you start giving the directions to the minute your child completes each activity. The time it takes may surprise you! Doing a craft or art project in advance with your child suggests the guests will also be able to do it. You will know if additional items (scissors, pencil, glue, tape, etc.) are needed. The project your child completes in advance will make for a great sample for other to see. Your child will be able to help others with projects or make another the day of the party. The run-through process gives your child added confidence in knowing what is expected the day of the party.
