A First Holy Communion is a special moment in a child’s religious journey. For the child’s family, it’s a time to celebrate, and many choose to commemorate the occasion with a party attended by relatives and friends. Hosting your child’s party aboard the Skyline Princess is one way to make your party more memorable! Current health restrictions can make hosting a party difficult and stressful, but you can make your child’s big day unforgettable with one of the following kid-centric ideas.
Kid-Focused Communion Party Ideas
One common aspect of a kid’s party is lots of other kids. While kids can make their own fun, child-specific activities can help keep them occupied and happy while making the day more enjoyable for everyone. Over the years, we have hosted many children’s parties, and these are some of the most popular and creative ideas that we’ve seen.
- Treasure/Scavenger Hunt
- Photo Booth
- Get Artsy
After the formality of the church Communion service, the kids tend to have a lot of energy bottled up. Let them loose and explore a defined area for small toys, candy, or other “treasures.” You can print out miniature, themed treasure maps to help the kids find the treasures. For added fun, hide a small box with some extra unique loot in it and decorate it like a treasure chest.
Photo booths aren’t just fun for inebriated adults at weddings! Allow the kids to let loose and be creative. If your child has a favorite theme such as superheroes or sports, you can get inexpensive costumes and props at dollar stores and online. Add an extra element of fun by awarding prizes to the best costume, best group photo, most creative costume, and so forth.
For a larger group of kids, having a central area for the kids’ activities can be the easiest way to keep track of them. Some fun ideas for crafts include making dream-catchers, cute handprint animals, or paper bag monsters. They could double as goody bags for the kids to fill with candy at the party’s end.
