Ah, what to do to entertain your guests at your child’s birthday party??  This question has been asked by moms and dads everywhere.  Most likely, you will have guests of all ages. Your guests list may include; grandparents, parents, children and infants.  The Mini Express can help!  Our trains are are huge crowd pleasers and they can accommodate all your guests. Once the train arrives, you can expect all of your guests to be happy and anxiously waiting to get their turn to ride.  Of course, the Mini Express will be the highlight of all your activities but you should still have other things planned.   Some of the classic children’s party activities include; Pin the Tail on the Donkey, Water Balloon Toss, Musical Chairs and Bingo just to name a few.  Make sure all of your young guests are present when you begin your activities so that they can participate.  Also, It is the norm for the activity winners to get a price.  Make sure your prices are gender neutral.  Be on the safe side  and have a couple extra just in case.  You may be wondering..Among all these activities, when is the best time to have the Mini Express? We recommend the Mini Express attraction towards the middle of your event, after everyone is done eating and perhaps a few activities in.  This way you can ensure even your later comers will enjoy a ride.

Planning your kids birthday party always pays off.

Birthday celebrations can be a very stressful endeavor even
for the best party planner out there.
Here are some helpful hints to make planning easier and to help you keep
your sanity. 

Come up with a theme and run with it.

Theme is the first and most important decision you must

make. You can make a party as simple or as complicated and elaborate as you
wish.  Your theme doesn’t necessary have
to be a character.  It can be something
as simple as a color scheme or something as extravagant as a complete immersive
environment.  For simple themes, it’s
important that once you’ve decided on a theme you incorporate it with small
touches in everything you can.  For
example, if you choose the colors blue and red as your “theme”, you want to
make sure your invitations, tablecloth, napkins, plates, glassware, balloons,
centerpieces and even cake pull in those colors.   Small
and subtle touches in everything you organize will give you a look that is both
“themed” and beautiful.

Your party theme should be selected months in advanced.  You want to make sure you include your theme

in your invitations as they will set the mood for the entire party.  It’s nice for your guests to know beforehand
what your party will be about.  Many
folks rely on the invitation to get a clue on gifts for the birthday person.

Thanks for taking the time to read this post.  We look forward to your next event.

Happy planning!
