The days of ‘Pass the Parcel’ (with just the one present at the end), ‘Statues’, ‘Pin the tail on the Donkey’ and a plate of fairy bread are officially over.
It seems children’s parties have morphed into a dizzying heights with each party pushing the fun-limits of the one preceding it. Jumping castles, face painting, fairies, and the most perfectly iced cupcakes.
And, if ‘Pass the Parcel’ is played, there must be a present in every layer. Why? Because we need to teach kids that life is fair and everyone has an equal chance and (more to the point) I really don’t want tears and tantrums. I want everyone to be happy and have fun, so everyone opens a layer and everyone gets a Freddo Frog… Life in kids-party world is fair.
