Step right up! We have a birthday carnival party coming your way.
Remember the Prudential Marina Bay Carnival? They have done the deed of impressing the crowd of Singaporeans, and now it’s your turn to do the same – except that it’s especially for the precious child that you call your own.
That’s right, we said it and we mean it. If adults take the pleasure in scoring those carnival booths, then doesn’t it make sense for kids to all the more love them?
Well, if you haven’t held a carnival for your child’s birthday, then what are you waiting for? It’s time to get it moving and see what a birthday carnival party has in store for your child!
Games & Activities
Give a round of applause for the star of the show (aside from your kids, of course) – carnival game stalls.
Chuck a duck? Tropical Twister? Or the classic Pin Me Up/Pin The Donkey? Put together a list of games that you used to play in the past at the carnival with your friends or family! It’s a great way to let your kid take a sneak peek into your childhood. And the best part? To let them win all the prizes they possibly can!
While carnival games are a must-have in your party schedule, entertainment is the next best thing for fascinating your child and guests. And magicians in Singapore happen to do an excellent job when it comes to engaging and amusing them with all kinds of mysterious tricks!
Now, entice the kids with the tower of prizes awaiting them at the redemption booth and let them pile up their roll of tickets as they fight for the largest prize.
Your child and guests are welcomed to have all the fun they want when it’s game time. But make sure you don’t leave out the cake cutting session!
The main highlight of the party is still the cake – and it’s the time of the day where your child is finally going to make their birthday wish, in high hopes of having it come true.
So, don’t leave your cake in the fridge for too long. It is perfectly fine to have your cake table set up as the main centrepiece right from the get go of your party. Be creative, go wild and let your imagination run free with your cake table decorations.
Is a regular table enough to fit the cake? Or would you need a larger table for additional desserts to complement that beautiful cake? How would you like the table to be styled? Decked with fanciful table runners and a life-sized clown balloon statue? Or a simple two-toned colour scheme to keep it understated?
You’re the chief planner so you get to make all the decisions. Just consider having a chat with your child so you have a rough idea of their preferred design – they’re the ultimate VIP of the party after all.
Party Supplies & Decorations
You have your games and cake table all checked. So, what’s next? Party supplies and decorations, of course!
Now’s the time to take out a pen and put down all those necessary items on paper. Or just use your mobile phone reminder for that matter. We all know how tedious this sounds, but trust us, it’s an easier way to keep track of what you have – and don’t have.
That’s right, get it all down – game signs, tickets, goodie bags, tablecloth, carnival flags, balloons, you want to make sure that everything is there!
Some supplies, however, can be easily settled with the help of a kids party planner in Singapore. They will have your party needs ready at your fingertips plus you will have their immense experience to tap on. Everyone could use an extra helping hand don’t you think?
Pop Up Food Stalls
A birthday party simply cannot do without piping hot finger foods and tasty desserts to cool you off.
If you can bring back the delightful carnival games from the good-old-days – why not do the same with food stalls as well?
Go big or go home, so bring out those popcorn machines, ice cream carts, cotton candy floss machines and anything else that will serve as goodies to your kid and guests! While doing up the list, why not throw in some traditional and old school Singaporean snacks like arrowroot chips and wheel pops? You’ll be surprised to see kids and adults scrambling to finish the last bite.
Never Leave Out Prizes
After all that hard work in winning all those tickets, it’s time for the kids to redeem their prizes. Make sure you set up a redemption booth and have the sign ‘Prizes’, loud and clear. You’re going to see a whole line of kids queuing up so they can get their goodies first.
Have a whimsical range of choices and go by ascending or descending order of tickets when getting the prizes, it will help you greatly as you’re out shopping. Smaller prizes could be bookmarks, pens or keychains while bigger ones could go from gigantic teddy bears to Nerf guns.
The mega prizes might make you go a little tight on money but the gleaming smile on the children’s face will make it all worthwhile.
Carnivals will always hype up any child. You will never fail to catch a little one jumping up and down with endless excitement. From a free flow of delicious carnival snacks to winning his/her big bag of game prizes.
With a carnival as your next birthday party idea, you will have the honour of watching your child’s eyes sparkle at every point of the party. So, do it right and you’ll be rewarded with a very happy child by the end of the celebration.
