There’s no party like a dance party, and these games and treats will get your kids up and moving! Girls typically get more excited about dance parties, but boys will jump in with the right tunes. And isn’t it a good idea just in general to wear the kids out so they will fall asleep quickly after you have been corraling a handful and a half of them all day?
Each child will want something different in a dance party. Let kids do their hair before the party, or can put on temporary tattoos or face paint. Each child should hear music they like, so ask each to include the name of their favorite song with their RSVP. Play everyone’s requests.
