#1: Photography 

You will want to remember your children’s party and show them memories in years to come. Thus, hiring a family photography service will ensure that you can capture the best memories.

Hiring someone to help take the photos will mean that you can be a great host and get involved with the party. Or alternatively, sit back and relax after the hard work of organizing and setting up the children’s party.

To encourage your children to get involved with the photography, you could add a photo booth with props. This will encourage the children to be silly and have fun while pretending they are characters with the dress up items.

#2: Games

Every children’s party involves games. Games fulfil the majority of the time. Therefore, you must ensure you have organised the best children’s games to play. Here are some classic ideas you can try:

Pin the tail on the donkey

Pinning the tail on the donkey involves the children being blindfolded and guessing where the donkey’s tail is on the picture. The closest guesser wins the game and typically wins a prize. The idea of being blindfolded will increase the children’s excitement and to act silly, which is exactly what you want for everyone to enjoy themselves.


Children love exerting their energy and winning prizes. Both can be achieved with a pinata. By whacking the hanging pinata, they will expend their energy and eventually break it open to reveal the goodies inside. You could fill it with sweets or a treasure map for the children to go on a hunt to find the prize. Either way, all of the children will want to get involved as they love the idea of winning a prize.

Scavenger Hunt

Similar to the treasure hunt idea, a scavenger hunt can be a game in itself. You should give the children a list of things to find and collect, which will lead them to the end prize. It will keep them occupied for ages!

#3: Fun Party Food

All attendees will expect some fun food at a children’s party. So, you will want to ensure to cater with lots of kid friendly foods.

You could get the children involved in a ‘make your own’ hour. They could make their own cookies, cakes, pizza, or sandwiches. This will improve their culinary skills as well as allow them to get messy and eat fun food.

Alternatively you could create a long grazing table filled with lots of exciting party foods for the children to help themselves to.

#4: Arts & Crafts

Children love any excuse to get messy. Thus, an arts and crafts activity will help the children unleash their inner creativity at your party.

Why not get the children to paint each other, make things, or write poems. It will stimulate their minds and act as a great activity to get the children altogether and unwind.

We hope these helpful tips mean you can now throw the ultimate children’s party – one that everyone will remember for years to come. With a little bit of effort and organisation, it will be fun for all involved.
