Planning a party for a pre-school child -guest list

January 6, 2014 at 2:28 AM Leave a comment

The guest list for a pre-school party may swell beyond what you expect.  When considering who will be invited to the party keep in mind young children are often accompanied by their parents who anticipate and expect to stay. Parents of young children want to participate and observe their child enjoying themselves. Plan to have parents enjoy the opportunity of interacting with their child.  For every child invited expect one or two parents to attend. Also consider if siblings will be invited.

Plan activities ranging from high energy group games to low energy activities the parents can do with their child.  Have multiple areas set up so one or two children along with their parents can do an activity and move on to another. All the items needed for each activity should be  organized and ready to use: blocks, crayons and paper, cars and trucks, hair bows and crowns, balls and hoops, clay, etc.   Anticipate the short attention span of young children: have 5 or more activity areas available. When parents are interacting with their child the party will move along smoothly.

    Enjoy!
