Are you tired of the same old birthday parties at fast food restaurants every year? Are you ready for some new ideas? Let's see what resources we can find on the Internet for getting help in planning a new and exciting birthday party for your child.
We'll begin at Disney's Family.com site, which offers resources galore for planning birthday parties. You'll learn how to host a Puppy Party, a Mermaid Party, or a Spy Party, complete with inexpensive ideas for invitations, decorations, welcoming activities, games, food, goodie bags, and even thank-you notes. Discover how to have theme-related parties for one-to-three-year-olds, or learn how to put together the world's greatest goodie bags. The site offers photo ideas, tips on birthday manners, and ten party-planning pitfalls.
At Holidays, Birthday Parties & Celebrations, you'll learn that your three areas of focus for planning a birthday party are crafts, food, and games/activities. The sites offers several tip and fact sheets for hosting successful parties, in topics such as Guidelines for Age- Appropriate Birthday Parties and Birthday Parties Needn't Drive You Bonkers.
