Here are few tips for you to organize a DIY birthday party which your kid would love to talk for long time.

Select a theme

You need to have a theme for your kid’s birthday party. If you search online, you’ll find tons of birthday party themes. But, don’t go for a birthday party theme which you like. Instead, be on alert of your kid’s interests. If your kid is above age 3, then sure they will suggest the party theme. If your kid is a toddler or infant, then decide a theme with his interests.

For our first birthday party, we decided animal theme because my son loved animal songs and animal toys. For his second birthday, we decided train theme simply because of his interest on his train toys and some YouTube nursery rhymes which feature a train(Bob the Train). Both times, my son enjoyed the party, his cake and decorations.Our Pororo themed birthday party was a hit when the kid was three years old.
