The children’s Party Book by Anne and Peter Thomas is a great book to read for parents that want to organize the birthday party of their young children. Indeed, this is the first book that I bought when I started my journey as a parent looking for ideas on how to plan and achieve my child’s birthday party. I just loved it!

Featured birthday or party activities:

This book provides plenty of examples of group games (more than 200) for 5 to 12 year-olds. These games are categorized as:

  • games for getting to know each other
  • simple group games
  • circle games, memory
  • observation
  • word and guessing games
  • peaceful games
  • creative activities
  • things to make
  • active indoor/outdoor games
  • blindfold games
  • catch and ball games
  • treasure hunts,
  • relay races

Children aged 3 to 4 years old won’t have as much active indoor/outdoor games as the former age group. However, there are more than enough action songs and simple group games that parents can choose for their 3 to 4 year-old kids.

The authors give valuable information about the developmental stages of children. Also, they talk about how age is a key factor when organizing your child’s birthday party.

Questions answered:

The children’s Party Book answers many questions that parents like you have about organizing the best party for their young children. Some of the answered questions are:

  • Who should we invite?
  • Should the winner get a prize?
  • Should we give out a present list for our child?
  • You can find a useful checklist and all the essential prep work, such as, a calendar, the child’s wishes, the invitations, decoration, prizes and little presents.
  • When should we hold a party?
  • How many children should we invite?
  • Should little brothers and sisters be at the party too?
  • How long should a party last?

Why I love reading The children’s Party Book?

What makes this book really unique is a whole chapter about puppet shows. If you like story-telling and being creative making your own puppets, then this book will fulfill your enthusiasm by giving you a detail step to step guide.

Last, but not least, the authors also present 10 amazing themes appropriate for 5 to 12 years-olds that I am sure will engaged and make the party an unforgettable occasion.
