Throwing a birthday party for any child can be nerve-racking. This year, plan something different. Get the kids moving with a special gym-themed birthday party that encourages healthy snacks and physical activity. You hold it in a local gym, and make arrangements for trainers, coaches as well as entertainment that centres around healthy living. The only thing the parents need to do is watch and enjoy as their children learn the benefits of moving more than the joysticks for the newest video game. Once arrangements are made, creating your own invitations is breeze.
- Skill level:
Things you need
- Note cards and envelopes
- Scrapbooking paper
- Photos or drawings of activities
- Printed party information
Gather the information. Contact your local gym facility and make arrangements for the party. Not only will this give you the information on date and time for the party, it will also give you any consent forms that may need to be completed and turned in by the parents before the big day. Confirm with the gym any other requirements or recommendations it may have regarding clothing, footwear or equipment use. You will need this information to include in the invitation.
Locate photos or drawings of some of the activities that happen during the party. Cut them into different shapes and sizes, making sure they stay small enough to fit on the note card.
Cut the printed party information to fit the inside the note card. The final size should be just smaller than the note card size.
Cut pieces of scrapbook paper into odd shapes and sizes. Glue the paper shapes onto the front of the note card in random places. Let them dry.
Glue the party information onto the inside of the note card. Allow the cards to dry.
Glue drawing and photo cutouts onto the front of the card in random places. Leave space clear for wording. Let cards dry.
Write party theme on the front of the card. Words like "Come tumble with us" or "It's time to swing on over to my birthday party" describe both the theme of the party as well as some of the activities.
Insert your card into envelope. Be sure to include any consent forms, permission slips and general paperwork that parents may need to complete before the day of the party along with instructions on what they need to do. Put cards in the mail and watch the responses roll in.
