5 Things to Remember When Planning Spring Events for Your Kid’s School

Spring carnivals and end of school parties will be here in the coming weeks. If committee chair is one of the balls you’re currently juggling- you’re in the homestretch. Have you forgotten anything? Here are a few thoughts to help you finish strong.

· Confirm everything- Chances are your staff is made up volunteers that like you are stretching the limits of what can be accomplished in a 24 hour day. People can easily forget to write things in their calendar or have unforeseen circumstances pop up. It’s better to know now, than two hours before the event.

· Keep your sense of humor- As much as you would like, you can’t fire a volunteer. Smile, even when you’re dealing with the most difficult personalities. Everyone wants a successful event, but opinions on what that looks like and how you get there vary from person to person.

· Bend, but don’t break- Things will not always go according to your master plan. Have a couple people available that can serve as floaters and help out where the need arises. It’s ok to be flexible while still adhering to the agenda.

· Remember why you’re doing this- At some point you will probably promise yourself you will NEVER volunteer to plan an event of this magnitude again. When negative thoughts surface, think about why you agreed to assume a leadership position. It’s easy to get muddled down by the process unless you focus on the goal.

· Take great notes- Right now you’re at the summit of the mountain, but soon someone else will be at the base looking up at a great deal of work. Some of the things you tried have worked well; other things didn’t work as planned. A review of the vendors you utilized will be especially helpful- this will eliminate poor performers and provide contact information for those that provided exceptional service. A detailed review will help future leaders succeed without some of the bumps in the road you encountered.

Your goal is in sight, congratulation for stepping up to the plate for your school, church or organization.

Bounce House Safety

Slides, Bouncers and Obstacle Courses

Your child’s birthday is next month and as you’ve pondered different fun ideas, you finally settle upon a bounce house. It’s big, it’s colorful, it’s exciting, you can have the party in your own yard and it’s something all the kids would enjoy. Now- what kind of inflatable are you going to get? A bounce house? An obstacle course? Maybe a slide?

There are number different options to consider when you reserve an inflatable attraction for your party: Age and size of your kids, number of guests, amount of space in your yard and expected weather conditions all factor into what type of unit best fits your needs.
If your party is primarily for younger kids, a popular choice is a traditional bounce house; commercial bounce houses are commonly sized at 13x13 ft. which comfortably holds 6 kids at a time. You may also elect to get a larger sized inflatable at 15x15 which would accommodate up to 8 kids at a time. Consult your rental provider for exact capacity numbers for each particular unit.

If your party consists of kids of varying ages, size and athletic ability; a combination unit might be your best bet. Combination inflatable units incorporate more activities with the traditional bounce house. Climbing walls, slides, or even attached basketball hoops provide a number of different activities that would appeal to a number of different age groups.
Obstacle courses are a nice option for the pre-teen and teenage crowd. Obstacle courses allow for competition and varying physical activities which will hold the interest of an older crowd. Obstacle courses are also very popular with large events such as school carnivals or neighborhood parties.

If your party is the hot dry summer months, water inflatables might be your best bet. Water slides and combination bounce house water slides are very popular options to keep cool when the temperatures start to rise.

Your rental provider or course can make recommendations to you on what kind of inflatable unit would be best for your situation. You share a common goal with your rental provider- happy kids and a successful party.
