Fun For The Small Fry - Articles Surfing
Every kids expected their birthday party must be celebrated in the most special and enjoyable way. They eagerly waited for this day since from many days earlier. To make their birthday party attractive, parents has a very important role to play. Let us see how the kids as well as the parent can have a successful and a great birthday party.
If your tiny-tot has a birthday soon, celebrate the event with a party. The little people at this starry-eyed age are easy to please with a variety of activities.
One of the most attractive birthday parties our small one ever attended was held from three to five P.M. This gave Tad plenty of time to have his nap so he went to the party well refreshed. Because of the youth of the guests we mothers were invited too. However, when we arrived our individual responsibility ceased for the afternoon.
The dining room which joined the living room had been cleared of as much furniture as possible. Small tables and chairs borrowed from a nearby church nursery were scattered about. Large sheets of brown wrapping paper for would-be artists were piled on the end of one table. Nearby were plenty of crayons. Bright-colored magazines (old ones) and plenty of round-pointed shears also borrowed from nursery school were handy.
A big box of nursery blocks and all available toys owned by the small host were in this same room. Everything was ready when the small guests arrived. This was the children's room the mothers stayed in the adjoining living room, close enough to oversee the youngsters yet far enough away so the youngsters felt free.
It was fun to watch the small fry. The little chairs were inspected first. One or two such chairs at home were no novelty but here was a whole roomful. They needed to be looked over, sat in and moved about. Soon even the shyest child was busy playing. The older tykes began drawing or cutting and soon the younger ones were following suit.
After a period of free play the young host's mother produced a tiny bell and asked the children if they wouldn't like to play "Ring Bell Ring." All the children bowed their heads in their laps while Johnny, holding on to the bell clapper, ran and hid in the next room. When he was safely hidden the hostess called out, "Ring Bell Ring." The children then pointed in the direction of the bell ringer. This simple game delighted the children and had to be repeated again and again with a different bell ringer each time.
Then the hostess told a story about Mother Kitty and Baby Kitty. She chose little lass to be Mother Kitty. Then Mother Kitty and all the baby kitties went fast asleep. While Mother Kitty slept four of the babies awakened and tiptoed away to hide. When Mother Kitty awakened and found her babies gone she cried, "Meow." The little lost kittens cried, "Mew." Mother Kitty had to locate her babies by sound. After her every "Meow," the babies answered, "Mew."
"Policeman and Lost Child" next delighted the youngsters. One child was Policeman, and Mother worriedly asked his help in searching for her lost child. The Policeman asked Mother to tell him what her lost child was wearing. Mother then described in detail the clothes of her lost child. The Policeman looked about at the children and brought to Mother the child answering the description.
A "Game of Touch" was next on the program. The hostess put three familiar objects in a cloth bag a ball, a toy automobile and a pencil. Each youngster took his turn at identifying the objects by feeling them through the bag. For "Bucket Ball" the children formed a circle with a wastebasket in the center. Then each child was given a chance to throw a large rubber ball into the waste-basket. Young children are not very adept at aiming a ball, but they thoroughly enjoy ball games. In this game, if a youngster did get the ball in the basket he was given another throw.
Right game at a right time is one of the most important things to remember in order to have a successful party. Before the party kids arrived, get ready yourself with all the stuff needed for the party.
