Creating memories for children – the birthday party!

Back to Blog Home

When we look back on our childhoods, our tapestry of memories is likely to be weaved from key events such as the arrival of a new sibling, a new pet, a great holiday and, the all-important birthday parties – along with Christmas, the highlight of most children’s year.

There is such a variety of party options these days that it can be hard to choose  – which will provide fun & laughter for the birthday boy or girl but also be memorable enough to create a stitch in that tapestry?

An easy way to create that stitch is to have a party with something to take away…and I don’t just mean party bags!

Top Birthday Party Ideas

For the creative child, the party could include pottery making or painting, T-shirt or bag design; if they like helping out in the kitchen, there’s pizza making, cupcake decorating and even chocolate making!  At nearby Temper Temper, children can get messy with chocolate, creating Florentines, a chocolate lollipop plus other goodies that they bring home in a chocolate basket.  No party bag required!

For the ‘model’ child, you can throw a photo shoot party, perhaps with a makeover included – children can dress up & glam up, have a theme or just hang out with friends whilst their very own photographer invites them to ‘strike a pose’ as hilariously or seriously as they like, individually and of course, with their friends.

For some children, the excitement around a birthday is too much and they need to expend that energy!   Bowles in Eridge offers a wide range of outdoor activities all year round including sledging, skiing, climbing & canoeing – lots there to tire them out! They might also like a ten pin bowling party, a disco or even cheerleading! 

The tapestry of memories we help to weave for our children hangs in their minds as the backdrop to their lives.  Positive memories build positive people.  Happy stitching…
