In the hot summer season, it is better to celebrate the children’s birthday in nature, than to keep the crowd of kids and their parents in a stuffy room. Therefore, the parents of daughter girlfriend Nastya decided to celebrate her three years on the bank of the Dnieper.
The birthday girl and guests live near the embankment, so almost everyone walked. Daddy Nastya made one trip in a car to bring products and equipment. Also by car there was a family of one of the guests, which facilitated the delivery of guests home after the celebration.
The portable grill, store firewood, camping table with chairs, separately brought folding chairs, disposable dishes, bedding on the ground (rather than letting through damp and cold bed covers) made our stay much easier.
For adults there was a kebab, grilled vegetables, cold cuts, fresh vegetables and pickles. For children – water, juices, fruits, sweets (cookies, waffles). In the car there was a fridge with yogurt and cottage cheese.
Parents of the birthday girl still at home washed vegetables and fruits. Also not forgotten about the water for washing hands. It was decided not to take the cake, because he could be spoiled by the heat.
In order not to carry gifts for a picnic and from there, almost all the guests handed gifts during the morning walk (and the celebration was scheduled for the second half of the day – 16-17 hours). We presented a great book The Ugly Duckling with beautiful artistic illustrations. The parents gave the kitten, the rest of the guests – clothes and toys.
How to take children
In turn, each mother for 15-20 minutes entertained the little guests (there were about 10 of them). Also, as adult entertainers, there were more adult children (among the guests there was a girl of 6 years old and a birthday girl brother, who is 11 years old).
From classes: reading books, playing with toy dishes (cooking food with improvised means), dancing to the music from the car, boys playing with toy cars, girls with toy carriages and dolls.
Despite the proximity to the house, one should not forget about the precautions of being in nature. It is necessary to have a first-aid kit for first aid if necessary (fortunately, we did not need it), funds from mosquitoes and ticks (they came in very handy).
Here I will also take a sufficient amount of changeable and warm clothes, because in the evening it is cool in the water.
Do not forget to constantly keep children in sight, especially at nightfall, and especially when you are in close proximity to the reservoir.
I really liked this version of the celebration of children’s birthday. Of course, it is more suitable for summer birthday. It greatly facilitates the organization of the presence of a car at least one of the guests.
For older children, you can invite one or two animators, I already wrote about this version of the celebration.
And how do you feel about holding a children’s holiday in nature?
