Children with September birthdays have lots of things going for them. It’s something to celebrate during the gloom of back to school season. They also have the prestige of being amongst the eldest in the class (This March born blogger was particularly delighted when in year four his year group was divided into a two form entry – giving him a rare chance to be the oldest).
However, we know that a September birthday can cause some anxiety, and we’ve heard from lots of parents who are concerned about what to do about hosting a children’s party when your child hasn’t yet met their classmates! Will we invite the right people? How can I invite people in the holidays? Will people come to a party when they don’t know everyone? What if my party isn’t what everyone else is expecting? How can I make sure my child feels comfortable in their new class for the rest of the year?
Our Make a Movie Parties are a perfect solution to this problem – as our special blend of filmmaking and party fun is a great icebreaker – and will let the group bond, have lots of fun, and learn how to work together – all while making a special film for them to keep as a memento of the party! As the focus of our parties is very much on the film set, as everyone gets stuck into directing, shooting, crewing and performing in the film, we tend to see children completely relax and make friends without even realising it!
Fun September film ideas to make as part of your party:
- My teachers are all aliens! A fun way to explore the nerves and struggles of settling into a new school or class – this film with have your class in giggles!
- Haunted Sleepover – this is an all round classic, but as the nights begin to draw in it’s a perfect story idea as your heroes can creep around with torches and teddy bears. (It’s also super easy for costumes!)
- Hotel Transylvania 2 – this film is set to smash at the box office this September – why not recreate your own version at your birthday party?
