Planned a merry tale, and a sad true story? With tears, punishments and insults? Not to sadden the holiday, remember the following important points…
The mode of the day
The mood and behavior of children is largely determined by the health. No sleep and a tired baby will be cranky or extremely excited, and therefore poorly managed. Save NAPs and relaxing sessions in the morning.
Any holiday for a child, this is a huge amount of sweets. Not only the holiday itself, but as a minimum during his training and duties after the vote. “How delicious!” — will tell the kids. “How unwholesome, fast carbs!” — frown nutritionists. For child table, in addition to sweets, you can make cute sandwiches, fruit canapés, morning and afternoon — to give preference to ordinary dishes: soup, porridge, etc.
Coming up with games and contests, consider the age and interests of children. Will be too easy — the guys get frustrated (“Ugh, it’s for kids!”), too complex — bored. In addition, mobile games should be alternated with calm. And well, if there is no pronounced competitive jobs. They always end in tears and insults loser.
It is impossible to foresee everything. Just before someone from the family (or guests) can get sick. Children can fall out during the game, holiday cookies — to burn or not to stick together in the house, and the script is failing. Keep placing a few win-win options simpler and small gifts for everyone.
