When planning a kids birthday party in New Jersey, you want to give the kids what they want. For some kids that might be a mermaid themed birthday party, an ice cream themed birthday party, a festival filled with dinosaurs or zoo animals, or so much more. But ask most kids today what they really want… screen time! Should you bring technology to your kid’s birthday party? Keep reading to see how to do it in a fun, reasonable and parent-approved manner.
Keep Age in Mind When Planning A Video-Game Themed Birthday Party
Step aside princesses and friendly animals—today’s kids are requesting their favorite video game characters stop by to visit their parties! Whether your child would rather stomp mushrooms like their favorite plumber, eat a block-shaped cake, or battle it out with friends, make sure your choices are age-appropriate. Violent, multi-player games are certainly popular with kids as young as elementary school, but not all kids are ready for this sort of play. Consider the ages of your guests and the recommended ages to play those games before theming a birthday party around it.

Just because your child loves screens and technology doesn’t mean the fun has to stay confined to the device!
