How to Prepare a Children's Easter Party
Start your party preparations with a pastel table covering. You could use a solid color, or one with checks. For Easter, children think of eggs and rabbits and birds, so use those for adding accent and defining the theme. Yellow chicks and brightly colored eggs are always a good plan.
Add paper plates and cups to complement the table covering, and decorate the center of the table with ribbons and pastel flowers. Don't forget to add lots of pastel pearl finish balloons. Pick up a set of assorted colored cellophane bags, and fill them with popcorn. They make a great decorating idea and each child can have their own snack bag for later.
If you will be having egg or treat hunts, it's good idea to give each of the little ones a basket for their findings. Hide rubber ducks or chicks, along with plastic eggs containing jelly beans or candy corn. Other children's gift ideas include wooden "Jesus" necklaces or guardian angel bracelets, which put more focus on the religious aspects of the holiday, and offer a gateway for parents to teach their children the true meaning of Easter.
Decorate the children's Easter party with pastel streamers and ribbons around the walls. Pink, white, yellow, and light blue are some of the most common colors, but you can add accent with occasional dark red or blue balloons, or hang brightly colored cut-outs around the room.
Kids enjoy Easter stickers and Christian stick-on tattoos. From bunnies to crosses, play tattoos allow each child to express their personality. give each child an accordion party hat, and let the party take it's course as the children make believe and entertain themselves.
Cupcakes are often a better idea that a cake. This is because cupcakes won't require cutting, and offer far more variety. Use a few different pastel colored icings, and arrange the cakes for effect. There are also cupcake wrappers that individual cakes fit into. These cups are shaped like white picket fences, yellow duckies, and other exciting designs.
There is no shortage of traditional Easter treats for your holiday party. Jelly beans and marshmallow chicks are always fun, and should be a big part of the children's party. You may also want to pick up lollipops in different colors and shapes to place in the Easter baskets.
Easter is an important day for children to learn about Jesus. It is also recognized as ushering in the Spring, and baby animals are an important part of the renewal that comes each year. From egg hunts to sweet treats, it is a day that all children enjoy. With a little help from the adults, your children's Easter party can be something memorable for everyone.
