We love parties, at home, in a park, at a venue, the movies, or you could say we are suckers for a great excuse to celebrate anything.
Here are a few things that a kids party can help your child learn.
1/ that children learn how to be organised.
They do this from the moment you help them plan what their party will be, then deciding on their friends and getting the invitations out. Then it’s just fun and probably you, who completely take over while they are excited and just party.
Being a guest at a party means their skills start when they receive the invitation, they can be involved in choosing a present, arriving on time, then there are party games, eating times, gift giving and finally the farewell. (this is usually met with lot’s of “but i don’t want to go yet”)
They have learned that everything even parties has a time plan and an ending.
2/ that children learn to socialise.
All parties big or small have one thing in common, that everyone should enjoy them. So everyone must learn to mingle by giving the gift to the birthday boy or girl, joining in on games or a movie and getting to know the other kids. Or even talking to adults at the party, helps them with these skills.
3/ that children learn behaviour.
Kids can be out of control and over the top (that’s just being a kid) it takes you, to let them know that there is a limit to their actions and with their behaviour in check, the enjoyment they experience is back on track.
So ……kids parties are an important part of growing up but what a fun way to do it.
