Young children often get overwhelmed and over stimulated easily. We have all been to birthday parties where children are in tears over costumed characters or overwhelmed with the large numbers of unfamiliar faces. Consider your child's personality and preference and plan a party where your child can be comfortable, be himself, and have fun. With thoughtful planning, kid's birthday parties can be meaningful occasions of joy and celebration with limited stress for adults.
Talk with preschool and older children about a party theme (if they'd like one), whom to invite, and where to have the event. You might give your child a choice between two outdoor playgrounds, for example. See if your local Bright Horizons center hosts birthday parties.
