Preparing for your child’s birthday party need not stress you out unnecessarily if you know where and how to find the things that you will need. Of course, much as you’d like to do all the hardwork by yourself, chances are you already have to much on your plate so go easy on yourself and delegate. Find companies to do stuff for you at a very reasonable priice, like a banner printing online business to help you create those beautiful buntings and banners that are sure to bring a huge smile on your child’s place. If you are not gifted with the cooking prowess, why not ask a chef friend who will be willing to create the lovely birthday dishes for you at a discounted rate. Seek the assistance of your older children and their cousins to help you prepare and put the tokens and birthday lootbags together. Ask dad to create that lovely photobooth standee and ask your dear friends to help you create a touching birthday greeting video.
Remember that you do not have to do all the work as there are also a number of other people who wish for your child to have a wonderful birthday celebration and will be more than willing to give you a hand.
So here’s to one stress-free party planning!
I always love seeing my kids scribbling and drawing. It is such a beautiful sight watching them expressing their creativity through a piece of paper. It is an exciting experience observing them furrowing their brows in concentration as they connect lines and curves trying to make a tree or a mountain. Or listening to their sudden silence as they struggle trying to remember the looks of those shipping boats they just saw so they can draw and imitate them. Or noticing the way those crayons and pencils fit their small beautiful hands as they keep on doodling the final touches.
These are simple but precious things that make me happy. The thrill of waiting for their imagination to be put on display through these little masterpieces is fascinating. The smiles on their faces as they present their works with pride and confidence is priceless. And this mom has no choice but to be proud and grateful.
Now that summer is here, I am sure a lot of moms are getting ready to sleep in a bit more since there will be no need to wake up way too early to prepare the children for school as school will be out for a couple of weeks. I am sure the sleep deprived mothers will appreciate the extra snooze time. What bothers me, though, is how to get my restless children entertained and occupied while they spend time away from school.
A special breakfast meal where everyone will lend a hand in preparing is something that I have in mind. I am sure I can use the help and the children will appreciate helping create their very own sandwiches or simple fried treats. I am also thinking of other activities that the children will find highly interesting and exceptional the banjo, for example. I am sure they will be excited to learn how to play it, so a music class, will be in my list as well, along with art lessons, swimming class and an assortment of other activities that I know my children will love and enjoy.
Let me know how you get ready for summer!
