When you first begin planning your party you can start to explain to your child how important it is that all the guests enjoy themselves. Very young children can learn to say hello and welcome their guests when they arrive.Birthday parties today are another way to let kids explore their creative side. A craft party is fun to do and can be held at a local pottery or craft store, such as Michael’s. Booking a party at a craft store is a great way for kids to be messy and you don’t have to clean up the mess! This type of party is easily done at home as well. You supply the activity and supplies – the kids bring their imagination.I do not have kids gather round to open presents. Toddler guests don’t know or care what they got for the birthday child and the birthday child doesn’t care who it’s from. Also, they usually all want the new toys anyway. Let the guests play.
