Once Christmas is over, Valentine’s Day is the next big gift-giving event and is one that everyone can get involved in - including young children. So, there is no time like the present to plan the perfect Valentine’s Day party for your child/children.
Many people think that Valentine’s Day is just for lovers, but this is not true as love can mean different things to different people. Where children are concerned, Valentine’s Day is something they learn about at an early age and is all about friendship and giving gifts to those around them, such as mother, father, siblings, and friends. A Valentine's party is therefore a great way for them to celebrate the event.
Plan your party well in advance
To ensure that your party goes to plan, make sure that you plan ahead. Buy a notebook and jot everything down that you would like to include in the party. Make lists for food, decorations, games and even music - don’t get caught out!
Make sure that your party is age-specific
Before planning any party, make sure that you consider the ages of the children very carefully, as you will need to think about the music, the games, the food, the drink, the length of the party, and the amount of supervision that will be required - a house full of five-year-olds, for example, could be pretty exhausting with limited adult supervision!
Does your child have a birthday on or around Valentine’s Day?
If your child has a birthday at this time, it could be the perfect time to incorporate it with Valentine’s Day. A Valentine’s birthday party would have all the excitement of any other party, and have a great theme to go with it. You could even consider making it fancy dress so that all your party guests can come along in any attire they wish, as long as it is linked to Valentine’s Day.
How much space will you need?
This is an important consideration, as the younger the children are the more space they will require to run around in. If you have limited space, you may have to consider a small party or a different location. Alternatively, if you live in an area where you can depend on the weather during the month of February, then you will always have the option of having your party outdoors.
Decide on a suitable day for the party
You don’t need to have your party on Valentine’s Day itself for it to be a great Valentine’s party. It may be that the 14th falls on a school day, so you may need to consider
