How to Prepare For Your Kids Party on Ice

childrens party venue MelbourneDeciding on kids birthday party venues is no minor undertaking, especially when it’s somewhere as new and exciting as an ice skating rink. With all the factors  to take into consideration, you could easily find your hands full and your hair falling out. Thankfully, things don’t have to be this way. With the right planning, your child’s birthday can be a safe and memorable experience for everyone involved. Here are four ways you can prepare for that  special day.

Dress warm

It’s no surprise that at an ice skating rink you’re going to find ice. Not only that but they’ve got the air-conditioners running to keep that ice from melting. The room is typically kept at about 16°C, which is rather chilly, even when you are zooming around on skates. Before the party, be sure to tell your guests to bring warm clothes like beanies, gloves and warm thick socks. Put a note on the invitations about clothing or have a word with parents when they RSVP.


Organise activities

Once your party guests get the hang of ice skating, they’re going to be whizzing around without any rhyme or reason. While this can be a lot of fun for the little ones, it can also get a bit chaotic, leading to accidents and anarchy. Structure your event with the addition of planned activities throughout the day. These can include obstacle courses, dance routines or even a bit of ice hockey. Activities will ensure your group of kids have fun and most of all stay safe and under the guidance of a supervisor. Ask your venue about ideas and props to use.


Get a party Planner

While you may like to organise the party yourself, there’s always the option of getting the venue to plan the party for you. Kids party venues are expert at organising events so they know exactly what to consider and when. They can prepare delicious healthy meals while taking those worrisome dietary requirements into consideration, and they can even give your guests an introductory lesson at the start of the day. Ice skating around Melbourne needn’t be a stressful experience – these professionals can see to a day that is fun and memorable for all.
