Not every parent is lucky to send their children to spend their summer at granny’s house. For many families, the never-ending lockdown will end up with a huge headache about how to keep kids busy during their holidays. At this point, all table games have been played, animated movies have been watched, and the badminton set went threadbare.
Here are 5 ideas for the children’s celebrations and birthday parties, which will only take you a home-based karaoke system, some color paper, and a good mood.
What do the kids love more than granny’s pastries and ice-cream? Superheroes, of course. Every child is likely to have their favorite cartoon hero: Spiderman, Batman, Cat Woman, or Iron Man. So, why wouldn’t you throw a karaoke party which will bring them all together?
Suggest your little guests make the costumes or super-hero masks with their own hands (with a little help from the adults, of course). The children may choose either famous movie characters or the heroes they created themselves. Beware, villain – this city’s got a new hero.
Sweet mics made of cupcakes and waffles? A keynote-shaped cake? Yes! Yes! Of course! The sweet-tooth party is exactly what will make your celebration memorable. Prepare a tasty award for the best performance and small prizes for every participant.
Turn your party into the ceremony of a prestigious music award. Separate and decorate a small area of an improvised stage where the main action – the award ceremony for the young show-biz stars – will take place. Let the guests pick the star they want to impersonate and dress accordingly, using inexpensive entourage they can prepare in advance: make-up, wigs, inflatable guitars, and sunglasses.
The Party of Princesses
The royal party is likely to be your girls’ dream. Why wouldn’t you make this dream come true? Ask the girls to put on their favorite dresses and make crowns out of the color paper or buy them in the nearest shop where they sell holiday decorations.
Cook royal treats for the little princesses: pizza, snacks, and fizzy drinks. Don’t forget about a playlist with the songs that are good enough for their Royal Highnesses.
Gravity Falls Karaoke
What’s your kids’ favorite cartoon? Gravity Falls, of course! You can hardly find a child who would refuse to switch places with the show’s main characters: Dipper and Mabel, or to dip down the overwhelming adventures and mysteries. Give your children this chance!
Put down the names of the characters and shuffle them in a bowl. Ask the guests to pick one. It is how each child will find out their role. Divide the children into two teams and engage them in solving mysteries and quests. It can be a guessing game, karaoke quiz, or enchanted map of the apartment that will lead to a treasure – a cake!
Hopefully, you will find an idea for your children’s party, and you’re going to have a great time together! Don’t forget that the main thing about any celebration is the high spirit!
