Marriage comes with all sorts of milestones: Anniversaries, vacations, kids. Similarly, separating from your spouse brings its own set of milestones: Finding your own place, filing for divorce, and for some, figuring out all the ‘firsts’ that now come with co-parenting. One of the most important co-parenting firsts is successfully navigating your child’s birthday party with an ex. How do you keep it all together for the sake of keeping it all about the kids?
If your child loves the idea of camping but really doesn’t want to battle the bugs, the elements, or sleep on the hard ground, then glamping is a great alternative. It allows your child to enjoy the great outdoors while surrounded by the comforts of home. Glampers can even set up their camp indoors for nights when Mother Nature doesn’t cooperate.
Typically, dinosaurs are a fascination for kids. Dinosaurs were big, destructive, loud, and most likely chewed with their mouth open; what’s not to like? If you have a young dinosaur enthusiast at home, treat them to a dinosaur-themed birthday party that will be remembered for the next million years!
Up until about age 10, most kids are happy if a birthday party includes balloons, a couple of games, and cake. But as children move into the tween and teen years, party planning becomes more complicated. Partygoers in this age group still enjoy celebrating with friends, but want more than a round of musical chairs.
