Preschool party blow-out

Preschoolers are an easy group to please. They are just discovering the value of friendships, and any activity or theme that promotes the art of incessant playing will be a winner. From invitations to games to food, plan the party around a creative central premise. Not only will this will encourage preschoolers to use their finely developed imagination skills, it will also keep parents entertained as they sit back and observe this creative, and always hilarious, age group.

Themes

A theme based on popular children's television or movie characters may be fun for the preschool set. Parents may find that planning a party is easy with the vast amount of commercial television and movie products available. Party supply stores carry napkins, hats, cups, plates, and other party accessories featuring most of the current popular characters. In addition, there are sites on the Internet that offer movie products, activities and trivia.

On the other hand, some parents may feel uncomfortable with themes that promote commercial entertainment and consumerism. And it can be a struggle to incorporate creativity into such a party.

A wonderful, less-commercial birthday theme is that of space travel. This theme offers children an opportunity to learn about astronauts, space travel and faraway planets, all while enjoying a variety of fun activities. With a little imagination, you can make your space travel party quite a blast!

Invitations

Here are some ideas to help you create unforgettable invitations, using a space travel theme for your preschooler's birthday party.
