Tips + Tricks: Top 10 Secrets To Hosting The Ultimate Kids Party

Since its establishment in 2010, Captain Fantastic has risen to become the top children’s entertainment brand in the UK. With over a decade of experience, they have perfected the art of entertaining and engaging children at parties. Whether you’re a parent organising a birthday bash or an event planner, Captain Fantastic’s proven guidelines will ensure you host the ultimate kids’ party.

Setting the stage for a successful kids’ party is paramount, and Captain Fantastic knows this better than anyone. Remove potential distractions and safety hazards from the party area. Avoid placing balloons on the floor, as they can become not only a distraction but also a source of accidents. Children might pick them up, hit each other, or get upset if one pops. Your top priority should be
creating a safe and welcoming environment where kids can enjoy themselves without worries. Ensure that the setting is clean, clutter-free, and optimised for a smooth and safe experience.

Creating an inviting atmosphere as children enter the party is essential. Set the mood with age-appropriate music at a reasonable volume, and instantly capture their attention with bubbles, which are sure to bring smiles to their faces. The atmosphere should be warm, welcoming, and exciting. It should make children feel comfortable and ready to dive into the festivities from the
moment they walk through the door.

Captain Fantastic understands that personal connections matter. As kids arrive, they make an effort to engage with each child individually. Using their names builds rapport, making it more likely that they will listen and follow instructions later. This personal touch fosters a sense of importance and inclusion. When children feel recognised and valued as individuals, they are more likely to participate and engage with the activities and entertainment throughout the party.

The entertainment portion of the party should kick off with a burst of high energy. It’s important to set the tone right from the beginning and capture children’s attention instantly. The excitement and enthusiasm displayed by the host or entertainer will be infectious, making kids eager to jump into the party’s fun and games.

Much like stand-up comedians aim for a laugh every 30 seconds, children’s entertainers, like Captain Fantastic, understand the importance of maintaining a constant level of interaction. Children need something engaging every 30 seconds, whether it’s shouting out, answering questions, or actively participating in the performance. Keeping them involved throughout the party
is key to maintaining their attention and ensuring they have a great time.

Incorporate a magical element into your party by letting children know that they are the ones who make the magic happen when the entertainer performs tricks. Encourage them to use their “magic fingers” and say the “magic word.” After a successful trick, give them a big round of applause. Positive affirmation and involvement create an enchanting atmosphere and help children feel that they are an essential part of the magic show.

Captain Fantastic advises lowering your voice at times during the party. This technique makes children listen extra carefully, as it conveys that you’re sharing something truly important and just for them. The contrast between the energetic moments and these quieter, intimate moments adds depth to the party’s experience. Children feel special and that they are receiving exclusive
information meant just for them, not the grown-ups.

Captain Fantastic understands that kids have boundless energy. To avoid restlessness during longer shows or activities, incorporate short, physical activities. These brief breaks allow children to burn off excess energy and re-engage with the main event. This is particularly important in keeping younger children focused and entertained.

Children are wonderfully unpredictable, and that’s part of the charm of any kids’ party. Captain Fantastic advises going with the flow of their energy and interests while gently guiding them in the right direction. Flexibility and adaptability are essential qualities when dealing with kids. Embrace their unpredictability and be prepared to adjust your plans to accommodate their ever-changing moods and interests.

To prevent overwhelming children with a myriad of simultaneous activities, Captain Fantastic recommends structuring the party. Have a clear schedule where different groups engage in specific activities at designated times. This approach creates the illusion of choice while ensuring that the party remains organised and enjoyable. By creating a well-organised flow of activities, you
provide a sense of structure and predictability that makes the party more enjoyable for both kids and adults.

With the experience and expertise of Captain Fantastic, you can confidently implement these rules for the ultimate kids’ party. From creating the right atmosphere to engaging children throughout the event, you’ll host a memorable and enjoyable celebration that will be talked about for years to come. Happy party planning!

Mum Shares: Ginhawa Sa Kalusugan Ngayong Tag-ulan – Be Ready For The Rainy Season With These Essentials

As the refreshing rains replace the scorching summer heat, a season shift brings both relief and health challenges. While the rain offers a welcome respite, it also ushers in health concerns that become more prominent during this time.

The shift in seasons usually affects me because this used to be the season when my not-so-little man would experience asthma attacks and it really was quite a chalenge for a busy mum like me. Caring for a sick child can also take its toll on a mum, so I need to be extra careful so I won’t get sick, too. And as we continue to experience rainy days, it’s helpful to have these essentials to stay healthy, snug, and comfortable during the downpour:

Umbrella: Stay-dry comfort

Of course, number one on the list is an umbrella. If I would look at the bags of most Filipinos, I’ll most likely find an umbrella. It’s like a trusty sidekick in the crazy weather rollercoaster we experience daily. One minute, we’re under the scorching heat, and the next, we could be caught in a downpour with gusty winds. Having an umbrella on hand keeps me prepared for whatever weather surprise comes my way.

Tea: A cup of warmth

There’s nothing quite like wrapping my hands around a warm mug of tea as the rain taps against the windowpane. The soothing warmth of tea instantly makes me feel snug and content, making it the ultimate comfort drink for gloomy weather. I always choose a selection of soothing herbal teas such as chamomile, lavender, or ginger, which not only provide warmth but also have calming and digestive properties.

Sometimes, I add some honey or lemon for an extra touch of sweetness and flavor!
