Celebrating your child’s birthday

Darpan News Desk, 02 Jun, 2016
  • Celebrating your child’s birthday
The thought of being responsible for a group of kids hopped up on frosting, sugar, and fizzy drinks is enough to make most adults cringe. Throwing a successful party requires a secure area with lots of activities to wear off high levels of energy that accompany birthday celebrations.
“Planning your child’s birthday party can be a piece of cake. It’s all about finding the most cost effective, safe and stress-free way to make a great day for your little one,” says Lara Hannaford, Marketing Manager at LEGOLAND® Discovery Centre.
 
Hannaford suggests a few things to keep in mind for this year’s birthday party extravaganza:
 
Keep it short and sweet – Technically you are the babysitter for the afternoon, keep that in mind. A two to three hour maximum leaves plenty of time for cake, food and tons of fun.
 
Activities galore – Ensure you have provided enough physical activity to burn off all that excitement. Each child will be inhaling the key birthday food groups of sugar and sweets and will need a way to release all that energy.
 
Party favors – Select a package option that offers take home gifts if you require so.  Parting gifts can be simple, leaving each child with a smile and more entertainment for which the parents will appreciate.
 
Include the parents – To take some of the pressure off, certain venues offer packages with special adult rates or free adults per certain number of children. Enjoy a little adult time amongst the chaos while gaining a helping hand.
