As summer comes to an end, children going back to school are anxious to see their friends and teachers again. Moving up a grade level can be exciting but nerve-wracking.
So, why not consider a get-together with their friends and classmates for a day of fun? You’ll learn how to throw an exciting back-to-school party, and then everyone will come to you for hosting tips the following year!
Reserve Your Party
The most obvious step in knowing how to throw an exciting back-to-school party is figuring out where to host it. Consider places to hold the party, whether you’re hosting it alone or with other parent friends. So, keep in mind where and how you want to go about reserving a space.
Think of other party reservations you need—are you considering a DJ, reserving a magician, or hiring a catering team? Those are important things to think about, especially if you're on a budget.
Think Up Fun Activities
When you’re hosting a party, having fun and stimulating games are essential! If you don’t want it strictly to be school-themed, think of fun conversation games or team activities for ice breakers.
Whiteboard and markers can be used for playing strategy games. You could set up basic schoolyard activities such as tag, foursquare, or dodgeball. Keep the games simple—the rules don't have to be complicated!
A lot of parties aren’t parties without decorations. Decorations are a great way to spice up the party space and truly make it your own!
If your child hosts the party, take their opinions and preferences into consideration. However, if you’re hosting with multiple people, create a list of what you wish to include and then go from there.
Party planning is a fun but stressful process. So, plan ahead of time and set a date at least a week out from the student’s starting day so they can have time to have fun and prepare for the new school year!
