Kids enjoy parties loaded with food and goodies. You may be overwhelmed with all the party suggestions from Pinterest but with the right theme and budget, you can make your child’s party stand out and memorable. Take note of the following suggestions you can work with in your upcoming children’s birthday in preschool.
Inform the school
Preschools also set their schedule ahead of time so make sure to let them know about the celebration so they can make time for it, usually they allow small celebrations during recess time so it won’t interrupt their lesson for the day.

This is optional. You don’t really need to send out one since the kids and teachers will be there. But if you have extra time in your hands, sending one would be a nice idea which can also serve as a reminder for other parents that their child’s classmate is turning a year older!
If you want a safe bet, fast food is the way to go. McDonald’s, Jollibee, KFC and Shakey’s have kiddie meals that are always a sure hit in parties, but if you want to try something new and healthy, how about giving bento boxes a try?

Aside from the food, you might want to think about the drinks that you will be serving. Instead of packed juices or just water, why not try a healthier alternative? Kajuayan carries fresh coconut water and they recently launched their synbiotic drink composed of yogurt mango and yacon. It’s new and refreshing that kids should try out and would definitely love!
Some parents think that the more that you put in the loot bag, the better. The key is to keep it fun and functional. Go for simple objects like bubbles, or lego blocks that will keep them entertained and busy for hours. Here are some giveaways that are cute and useful.
Bottled Up PH -if you plan to give cakes in a jar
Arteegram Manila-for cute customized pillows, cans, lunch boxes etc.
Hello Rainbow Goodies – for customized bags, water bottles and neck pillows
Take note of the following too:
- Ask if someone from the class is allergic to certain types of food-chicken, seafood, etc. so you have an idea on what to serve.
- It’s good to extend the celebration to other teachers and staff so better to do headcount days before.
- Try using recyclable materials-use paper plates or straws, wooden spoons and forks and paper bags instead of plastic for wrapping souvenirs.
- Rethink if you really want to have a big cake to bring to school, big balloons and other decorations. If it’s not a big deal-then don’t stress over it!
The key is to keep birthday celebrations in school simple, short and sweet. Whatever you have prepared, your child will definitely enjoy his special day in school!
