Gluten-Free Birthdays

Even gluten-free birthday parties can be a heck lot of fun! Before you even take the cake into account, you’ll have to consider the gluten-free meal.

A barbeque is totally gluten friendly. However, you must be cautious with sauces and condiments. Such food stuff typically have wheat starch in them. You can eliminate rolls or buy the gluten-free ones. Burgers and hotdogs are always winners for the kids. Fruit kebobs are a refreshing “safe” choice after grilling.

Do-it-yourself sundaes aren’t so bad, either. You can omit the cones and have plenty of flavors and topping in hand. You can customize an ice cream party to avoid most allergies (wheat free dairy free, soy free, nut free, egg free).

In a children’s party, food only accounts for a small part. Kids are always in it for fun. Always think about the things that you know would make your child jump in joy, along with his friends.

A simple pin the tail on the donkey will remain a classic. Some kids enjoy arts and crafts or sports activities. It need not be expensive or extravagant or ostentatious, for that matter. It can be just a simple good clean fun.

Decorations are yet another non-food way to make the party such a hit. Brightly colored streamers, balloons, tablecloths, paper goods all scream PARTY. Of course, picking the theme and color scheme should involve your child. He should always have a say in it.

Remind your kid that albeit it’s his birthday, everyone invited to the festivity should enjoy and feel special, as well. Have him help you in preparing the party bags for his guests. Getting presents is the bomb but giving has its own unique charm.

We only get to celebrate our birthday once a year. That said, be sure to let your child celebrate who he really is on his special day.
