Entertaining the Kids (while the parents talk!)
We did a whole new kind of birthday party today. It was for a one-year-old, but Ready Race Party wasn't there for the one-year-old. We were there to entertain the kids while the parents visited. It worked out really well. The parents all got to visit and the kids were all very entertained. Comments to the host parents were things like, “What a great idea!” and “This is so nice.” We were there for an hour, then an hour and a half, and then two hours, and still the kids played and had fun! I think there are lots of places this type of activity would be useful – anytime parents want their kids engaged so they can visit or do whatever they need to do. Since our parties come with a party assistant, the other adults are free. I even think this would be great at a wedding reception – tucked in a corner, so the kids could play and have fun and the parents don’t have to keep track of them as much!
