Your Child’s Birthday Party Needs a Social Venue

You’ve been to a children’s birthday party gone wrong. You may have even hosted one of your own. It’s hard! A child’s imagination is a beautiful thing — it can also cause you a massive headache when they start laying out their wish list. One of the easiest ways to set yourself up for success is to give your partygoers an environment in which they can play and be social. To avoid an anxious three hours monitoring all the breakable things you own, this place should probably be outside of your home. Hosting a social birthday party at an outside venue allows all of your child’s guests to play and interact with each other far from your delicate possessions.

Free Play Let’s Your Child Make the Rounds

When you lay out the prospect of hosting a birthday party, you have to determine a list of invitees. Your child may have an extensive list of friends they want at the event, so choosing a place where all these tykes can freely play with one another is important. You want to ensure your child gets the chance to see and talk to everyone that came out to the party. No one likes feeling like they didn’t get a chance to say hello.

Hosting a Social Birthday Party Requires an Open-Ended Venue

An open area presents kids with the opportunity to explore. They can choose where and how they want to play, and it leaves room for any dissenting parties to find something they might enjoy more. When the focus of the party is too narrow, you may unintentionally push your guests into doing something that they don’t enjoy — not everyone loves bowling. (Very few people love bowling.)

Another factor to consider is noise. Social play is loud, and that’s a good thing! Kids generally like to be loud. Presenting your guests with the chance to play in an uninhibited environment is a great way to set yourself up for success. As bad as they may want to see a new movie, there’s nothing more dread-inducing than the prospect of hauling twelve seven-year-olds to a theater and trying to keep them all quiet. Everyone will have more fun (and fewer stress headaches) when a social, play-friendly atmosphere is host to your party.
