And the little ones will be overjoyed with what you have planned for them with love, care and Chalkboard party supplies.
Planning Your Chalkboard Birthday Celebration
A good plan will be the most important factor in throwing a great Chalkboard party. But to make your Chalkboard birthday party an event to remember, you will have to start planning well in advance. Last minute party planning stress can be avoided by planning your Chalkboard themed birthday party early. Take into consideration party theme, the venue, food and drinks, Chalkboard party supplies (decorations, favors, props etc.) and budget.
Chalkboard Birthday Party Theme
The very first thing that you have to consider when organizing birthday bash for little one is deciding the party theme and you should have a chat with your kids and determine whether they are okay with Chalkboard themed party. Now that you’ve decided that you will be going with Chalkboard theme, you will have to arrange for all the party supplies that match the theme. Being a very popular theme, you’ll find tons of Chalkboard birthday supplies at various local as well as online stores.
You may have decided to throw a Chalkboard birthday party for your kid, but before finalizing the theme, have a talk with your child about the theme.
A few points to consider about Chalkboard party theme:
- Is your kid a big fan of Chalkboard?
- Apart from Chalkboard, does your child has any other theme in mind?
- Will the guests like/love Chalkboard theme?
- Are Chalkboard party supplies easily available?
Chalkboard birthday supplies will make your party stand out.
Decide on the size of your Chalkboard Birthday Bash
Now it would be a great time to consider who you will be going to invite for your Chalkboard kids’ birthday party. I would suggest that you keep the list of the invitees restricted to close relatives and friends to make sure that the Chalkboard party is not overrun by a lot of kids. Having said that, if you would like to have a larger birthday celebration, it is possible with extra help taken from friends/relatives to watch the party guests as well as the Chalkboard party supplies that you’ve already laid out on the table. One adult for every ten kids at the Chalkboard celebration should suffice. Supervision of adult(s) is necessary if you want to lay out Chalkboard party supplies on table in advance.
Although I would suggest you to keep the Chalkboard birthday party small, it really depends on the number of friends your little one wants to invite for the party. If your kid is too small, say one year old or two year old, the less kids in the Chalkboard party the better. You’ll have to purchase Chalkboard party supplies according to the number of guests in your kid’s birthday party.
Scheduling Your Chalkboard Party
Scheduling the party is one of the most significant part of the children’s birthday party organizing process, so you’ll have to schedule your Chalkboard birthday party carefully. Be sure to schedule your Chalkboard birthday party in advance. To make your Chalkboard b’day party a smashing hit, it should have a precise beginning and ending. It is always better to keep the Chalkboard party short, simple and sweet. Also, you’ll have to take care about other children’s routines so that your Chalkboard birthday bash does not interfere with their schedules. Morning or afternoon is normally the best time to throw the best Chalkboard themed birthday bash. Buy your Chalkboard birthday supplies well in advance if you are purchasing them from local store. If ordering online, buy the Chalkboard party supplies one month in advance so that you receive them in time.
Have A Budget For Your Chalkboard Birthday Party
It is vital to have a budget for the Chalkboard party that you’re planning and you should stick to it. Although there are some parents who spend a lot of money on these social gatherings, I would suggest you to have an affordable budget since a low-budget kids’ birthday party can also be made to look lavish using low-cost Chalkboard party supplies that are available online. You can also check out the local stores if they are running better deals on Chalkboard birthday supplies.
Choosing A Venue For A Great Chalkboard Party
You should take great care in picking out the ideal type of venue for the perfect Chalkboard bash. The venue for your Chalkboard birthday party should not be too far which can be difficult to gain access. The address should be clearly mentioned using simple fonts or clear handwriting and no guest should have the difficulty reading it due to design or style of your Chalkboard themed invitations. If you’re using the invitations that come with Chalkboard party supplies, use black or dark color color pen to write on them.
Try to pick an inexpensive or no cost party location for the Chalkboard birthday party.
- Your house, or a friend’s or a relative’s house is the best and the free of cost option to host your Chalkboard birthday party.
- Many libraries have community rooms that would cost very less (some are even free) to host your Chalkboard themed party.
- Your local park may be another low cost option to throw a great Chalkboard birthday party for your kid. Although you might have to pay for the picnic area or an entrance fee, still your Chalkboard party would cost less than other costly venue options.

- For kids that are three years or older, balloon modeling, magic show, puppet show, face painting or any other kind of live entertainment will make your Chalkboard party wonderful.
- If you have thrown the Chalkboard birthday party for a toddler, invite adults too and arrange some games and activities for them as well because toddlers can not play by themselves but will enjoy seeing adults playing and laughing.
- Only play music that the kids can recognize, like Hot Dog, Hot Diggity Dog from the Mickey Mouse, Sesame Street song, Yo Gabba Gabba! song or anything related to the Chalkboard theme.
