1. Get your kids involved

As a kid, didn’t you like to engross yourself into the plans and preparations for Eid? Get your children into the festival mood of Eid. Kick-start the party with ideas and suggestions for decorations, food to be prepared and activities to be hosted. Nothing would be more enticing to the kids than selecting a party theme, or their favourite food. Get nostalgic and have fun like the good old times with cousins and younger siblings by playing board games or quizzes. Well, if you are organising a party at home then get set to rearrange the furniture to maximise your space and decorate your home to make it look all the more festive. Alternately, if you are in a hurry and lack enough time to make arrangements, you should consider hiring a best-in-town party organiser.

2. All about the Food and Snacks

No denying! Eid is all about the food as a part of the celebration. Well, as far as the kids are concerned, they would definitely want to see their favourite, mouth-watering delicacies on the table. Therefore, while planning on the menu, keep in mind to consider the food and snacks which are kid-friendly. Also, you can get your kids to decorate the food table so that your home looks festive; perfectly suitable for Eid. So if you’re organising a party all by yourself at home or a venue other than your home, don’t forget to take suggestions from your kids. You can also opt-in for the best caterers in town to make your Eid celebrations more smooth and delightful.

3. The Table for Desserts

There is only one thing that will get your kids excited and enthusiastic. It is entirely the cakes and desserts! Make the dessert table the heart of your home this Eid! Decorate the table to make it look all the more enticing. Place a beautiful tablecloth and fill the table with sweet treats, cakes and a few healthy options too. Also, fill up the empty spaces
