Do you have a little boy or girl who's fascinated by the world around him or her? Perhaps he or she is constantly talking about places to visit and landmarks to check out. Of course, most kids aren't going to get to live the jet-setter lifestyle for quite some time, but that doesn't mean you can't help them get a little taste of what the whole wide world has to offer. If you're looking for a unique theme that will dazzle your little one and his or her guests, an around-the-world party could be just what you need.
Start by outfitting your home with appropriately festive décor - paper lanterns throughout the space, light a few delightful vanilla-scented heart candles and sprinkle some silk cherry blossom petals around. Once you've set up your home, it's time to come up with a few ideas to give your guests an international adventure.
Think about assigning each room in your house to a different country and sprucing it up accordingly. For instance, in the French room, hang the traditional colors of blue, white and red and pipe some pleasant accordion music through a pair of speakers. Perhaps you can hold a brief screening of a Pepé le Pew cartoon!
As the kids leave, make sure they walk out clutching goodie bags filled with great stuff. Personalized birthday lollipops and mini candy dispensers are sure to please. You can even send your guests home with various international candies - you should be able to find a few by searching online or at a large grocery store. This party is a great way to teach eager young minds about the many different cultures of the world!
