Child Magazine's Book of Children's Parties
As any parent knows, giving a party for very young children is no picnic. Thank heavens for Children's Parties! This essential guide takes all the stress out of organizing a party for children five and under. Expert advice from Child, America's most trusted child-care magazine, will turn any parent into the hostess (or host) with the mostest!
A comprehensive section covers all the practical aspects of planning a party, from deciding how many guests to invite, to how much food to prepare and which games to play. Just choose one of the plans specially designed for each age group and you're ready to party!
Children's Parties includes ideas for themes and easy-to-make decorations designed to appeal to young children. You'll find noncompetitive games for indoors and outdoors as well as tasty treats including delightful decorated cookies, wet 'n wild drinks, and food that's fun and nutritious, too. Step-by-step photographs will show you how to make innovative novelty cakes, including a dinosaur, a fairy-tale cottage, and a wizard's hat.
Extensive checklists and handy tip boxes, combined with step-by-step directions illustrated with full-color photographs, make party planning a breeze. And just in case - a first-aid section gives quick-reference information on choking plus minor injuries. Even the most experienced parent will rely on the section of defusing tantrums and drying tears.
