Planning a birthday bash on the Gold Coast for your kids can be a hard task,
especially if you’re working and lacking the inspiration. That’s why we’ve put
together these 7 steps to help you go all out without having to go, all out!
1. The Food
While being super creative and planning intricate snack foods sounds good in
theory, it’s usually not worth the hassle on the day (unless you have a maid).
Chances are, the kids won’t even appreciate the effort you’ve gone to make those
Peppa Pig inspired sliders or the Angry Birds vegetable snack ‘deconstruction’.
The key is to keep it simple. Go with what you know and what you are
comfortable with to make the day as stress free as possible. Nothing wrong with
party pies, mixed sandwiches and fairy bread!
2. The Plan
Make sure you plan a schedule for all the activities throughout the day and allow
for travel time. What time your guests should arrive, where you’ll play games,
what time to arrive at Infinity, where to get ice cream and what they’ll get when
they go home.
Make sure you order your Infinity party invitations a few weeks prior to the date
of the party. This gives you enough time to personalise and send them out with
enough notice for your guests to RSVP.
4. RSVP list
Ensure you stay on top of who’s coming and if they have any special requests.
When inviting guests, try and keep the numbers even so no one misses out
during the games and remember – the older the children, the better they are at
tolerating bigger crowds, so be strategic about how many kids you invite.
5. Involve the birthday boy/girl
Don’t be too overbearing with the decision making, get your child in on the
conversation as well. If you both have very different ideas about what themes
could work (or are even possible), write them down. You need to decide what
you are willing to pay for and spend time on, so if you control what goes onto the
list, then your child will still feel like they get to choose.
6. Opening the presents
Do it at home – trust us! There is nothing more embarrassing than your child
announcing in front of all your guests that they don’t like what they’ve been
given! Avoid the stress of what they might say and open the presents when you
Another added benefit of opening the presents at home is there is no risk of
losing different bits and pieces. The last thing you want to be doing is trying to
find every lost piece of Lego from a 500-piece star wars set.
7. Infinity Attraction
If you really want to knock the socks of the kids, then Infinity is the perfect place
to blow their minds! Literally let your kids run free to explore a world of wonder
at Infinity at Surfers Paradise. Every facet of the attraction is supervised, safe and
super fun for all kids aged 8 and above!
What’s better – Infinity is indoors so you don’t have to worry about the weather
ruining your kid’s perfect day, which is really important when you live on the
Gold Coast. You don’t have to worry about parking as there is two hours free and
plenty of spaces located in Mantra Chevron Renaissance.
Note that you need a minimum number of 8 guests to book a kids
