Organize the Fun _ Spontaneity is always fun, but for a preschool birthday, scheduling (with some wiggle room) is the way to go. Try planning activities over a short time span __ 10 to 15_minute intervals. And if you have anything special planned, do it before the cake, a surefire sign that the soiree is winding down. Remember, simple is best when you are dealing with young children with short attention spans, so you want to try to avoid activities where kids have to wait for their turn, especially if there are lots of other kids at the party. Think bubbles, coloring pages, and books, freeze dance or even a craft station, complete with clay, paper, glue and other assorted items that kids can create with. Try to have at least one adult helper for each activity.
Alternatively, you can use this design to create an interesting closure on a decorated sheet of 8 1ǘ inch x 11_inch paper. Use a bit of glue or double sided tape to attach each half of the design to the top and bottom of a 8 1ǘ inch x 11_inch sheet of paper. Flip the paper over, then write your message in the middle. Fold the top of the paper up to the middle point. Fold the bottom up to the midpoint, then secure the two origami units with an envelope seal.
