Children in this age group are comfortable with rules, taking turns, and playing games, so Physical Activity parties such as a Bowling Party, Martial Arts Party, Gymnastics Party are perfect for this age. They are also developing coordination skills and will be excited to put them to use in games geared towards these skills.
Invite schoolmates and friends. Just remember that some children at this age prefer to only have children of their own sex at their parties so don’t be alarmed if this is the case.
Length of party
1 1/2 - 2 hours
Entertainment for age
At this age, entertainment that involves hands-on activities such as baking/decorating cakes, sand art, or painting are great. Kids feel a sense of accomplishment, especially when they are at a phase in life where they begin to develop and perfect specific individual skills.
Safety for age
Make sure to have all the phone numbers of the guests’ parents.
