My recent Mellow Yellow Monday posts about this beach resort in my hometown with a nice, spacious playground got me thinking about birthday ideas for children This thought came to me because my niece’s 7th birthday is coming up in two months time and his dad, my younger bro, asked my help to assist his wife to come up with activities that can make his daughter’s birthday a happy and memorable one, not only for the children’s enjoyment but also for the accompanying parents and other adults as well.
Because of my previous stay in this resort, I can say that it is perfect for my niece’s birthday party. First, the location. It is very accessible, just a 3kms away from the city center to Brgy. Baybay where the resort is located. Tricycles and jeepneys ply this route regularly. For those who are car-owners, there is a huge parking area and – wait for it – it’s for free!
Second, the facilities are good. There is a large swimming pool for kids – which is a sure hit for the kids. However, my SIL and I need to take into consideration those who do not know how to swim.
Thirdly, the resort is about 7-hectares and they have well-maintained tropical garden setting. It is a huge space for kids to run around! There is a nice playground complete with the usual playground fixtures, such as seesaws, slides, swings, monkey bars, etc. to amuse them. For the accompanying parents and other adult guests, on the other hand, they will love the benches and tables shaded by large trees to sit down and watch the children play at the party while enjoying drinks and snacks themselves. I heard there’s a wi-fi Internet, too, so they can also entertain themselves with a bingo game or two at FoxyBingo.com.
Generally, kids are very easy to please. We can provide them with fun things to do, like parlour games, such as this musical chair game. There is also a bowling alley inside the resort so perhaps a mini-bowling tournament for the kiddos will be considered as well. The food and the birthday cake and ice cream can come later when everyone’s getting tired and hungry. We already thought about decors and food, etc. But before my SIL and I go crazy about the details, I think it is a must that we first ask what the birthday girl wants. What we might think fun might not be for her. After all, it’s her birthday. Will keep you posted.
