Entertaining Young Children

Although it might seem simple to keep kids happy and entertained, the process is a lot more difficult than most people realize. I started thinking more seriously about going through and entertaining the kids in my house, and it occurred to me that we could do better. I began carefully considering all of the different aspects of entertainment, and I was really surprised with how many options were out there. I wanted to start a new website that looked at entertainment from a parenting perspective. Check out these posts to find out how you can keep your kids happy without compromising their intelligence.

Is Your Neighborhood Planning A Fall Festival?

Rhonda Gardner

Can you believe that summertime is soon to be over? September 23, or the beginning of autumn, is just a few weeks away and kids will be going back to school. It doesn't seem fair, does it? Maybe your neighborhood is already planning fun events to welcome the beginning of the fall season. Whether it's held at the end of September or it's held in conjunction with Halloween, looking forward to a fall festival makes it a little bit easier to say goodbye to summer days, doesn't it?

Are you on the planning committee for your neighborhood's fall festival? If so, perhaps you're still looking for ideas that will make it a fun and memorable event. From arranging for inflatable bounce house rentals to planning other enjoyable activities, here are some ideas that might help you.

Inflatable Bounce House Rentals

Probably the highlight of the fall festival will be watching kids playing in an inflatable bounce house. And if you think it'll be fun to watch, imagine the joy that the kids will have while they're bouncing all over kingdom come in the incredible bounce houses. While it might seem to the kids that they're bouncing all over the world, they'll actually be safely ensconced in a house that has nothing but safe features as part of the design.

When you rent the bounce houses, just let the agency know about how many people you expect at the fall festival. The person who takes your rental order will have the experience to know how many bounce houses you'll need. The houses will be delivered at the exact time you want them. After the event is over, arrangements can be made for the bounce houses to be picked up. You'll also probably be amazed at how affordable renting the bounce houses will be.

Reach out to a company such as Cool Cat Sites to learn more about your options.

​Plan Other Enjoyable Activities

Go with tried and true activities. For example, what is a fall festival without being able to bob for crisp apples? Face painting is another fun thing to have at the festival, along with things like games of tug-o-war, horseshoe tosses, and three-legged races. Collect fun costumes and vintage clothing and have somebody take photographs of individuals and families wearing them. You'll probably be surprised at how affordable it is to rent a photo booth. 

People in your community would probably love to participate by displaying their talents. For example, is there an amateur magician in your neighborhood? Maybe there are teenagers who are pretty good at juggling, and others who would be happy to be mimes. The secret is to have a variety of activities, isn't it?
