One of the main reasons we like attending parties in general is their social aspect. In most cases, going to a party means that you’ll be seeing a group of people you are mostly familiar with and whose company you know you can enjoy.
When it comes to kids’ events, things are actually quite similar: A group of familiar peers gathers and does all kinds of interesting activities, talks, and has lots of fun.
If you take a closer look at those two you will see that the core of every party is socializing and having fun. It’s only the way we achieve those that differs.
But there’s another thing: We have significantly more experience in social situations than our kids. Behind this fact hides the reason why kids’ parties can be so beneficial for them.
Learning social skills
You might not remember it now, but you were not always this chatty or tactful. Your conversation skills weren’t smooth. So, if you now frown or find yourself horrified by a sudden blurp in your kid’s conversation, we’d like to remind you that a long time ago you were probably making the same mistakes.
But you’ve learned your lessons. Throughout your childhood, you were exposed to different social situations and contexts which helped you developed into a lovely person and parent you are today.
And that’s one of the reasons why kids’ events can play an important role in the life of your youngster. By being exposed to different social contexts from the early age he or she will more easily grasp those oh-so-needed life skills.
Working in groups. Kids’ events like princess parties or superhero parties are mostly well organized and include a whole bunch of activities that can easily teach our youngsters what teamwork is all about.
This is great because it will help them feel more comfortable later on when working in groups becomes a necessity and not just a part of the fun.
It’s not just about running around
One of the greatest misconceptions about birthday parties and kids’ parties in general is that they are all about letting your kids run wild.
If it were all about that, we wouldn’t even be in this business. We want your kids just as well behaved as you do. That’s why we take working with them for a serious task.
If you’ve ever attended one of our parties, you must’ve noticed that our games are mostly just differently organized physical activities. That’s for two reasons: First, kids at such a young age are full of energy. If you don’t keep them focused you can easily lose a hold of the situation. Especially with a larger group.
Which, logically, means that you have to have a plan to keep them constantly engaged.
Second: This works especially well in the case of very young children. Engaging physical activities whose main focus is on movement can greatly help with improving motor skills of your child. Games that include throwing and catching different objects, passing it on from point A to point B… All of those can help, and what’s even better, they can be adjusted to different age groups.
Children are great to work with. The secret is in knowing how to approach them and get them to work with you. What is special about it once you get the opportunity is that, at the same time, you know you are doing something that will help them grow into a happier and healthier child. And after all, that is all that matters.
