We all know how the little ones love that time of year when Santa comes around and leaves stacks of presents for them to open up on Christmas morning. Well I decided to latch on to a bit of that magical anticipation to come up with an idea that no one has every tried before (probably). It was so much fun and not a lot of effort to pull off, which is always great when you are looking for astress free birthday party entertainment. In the January sales I purchased a job lot of wrapping paper and decided to implement the idea of a present party.
You are probably wondering what the hell a present party is. Well it's a whole lot of fun with the children. I wrapped up a load of empty cardboard boxes and taped some Haribo sweets on the outside of them. Afterwards a few real presents were wrapped up to add to the adventure. The children were asked to choose a present and the lucky ones got a gift whilst the kids that opted for the boxes got sweets!
Whilst this idea might sound a little absurd, the kid's really did enjoy the fact that they were able to open up the parcels. They got great fun from tearing off the wrapping, which strangely made a great form of entertainment for them. It would seem that there's nothing like keeping Children's Party Games simple then for maximum effect! I also came to learn that when you throw in a few party bags to send home as presents, the ones that were not so lucky as to get a real present soon forgot about it!
