You can also do a short orientation about wearing helmets and pads for safety. For a challenging game, set up an obstacle course in your driveway or a flat, open area. You can use orange cones, garbage cans, pedestrians, chairs, stuffed animals and other examples. Time your riders using a stop watch and offer a nice prize. For party favours, you can distribute bike reflector decals.
You can inspire young artists with a party theme that allows them to have fun and bring out their creativity with an assortment of art activities. If you know that your guests can be a bit “expressive”, you might want to cover your furniture with protective material. You might want to indicate on the invitations that it is an art party and the guests can come in coveralls.
You can set up art stations that can handle two to three kids at a time. Activities can include finger painting, poster painting, DIY tote bags, or DIY wooden jewellery. You might want to assign adults to supervise each station. Each child can be given an opportunity to stay at a given station and after 20-30 minutes rotate to the next. As for party favours, each guest can bring home their creations for some memorabilia.
The age of six is a time for children to discover what it is that they are capable of. It is also a good opportunity to encourage them to express themselves and have pride in their creations, as well as their accomplishments. Praises will do wonders for children and they can have a balance between learning by doing, at the same time having fun.
