This year’s kid’s party was much more elaborate than other kid parties.
The choice of the venue was perfect. Spiderman Game Center is well equipped with all sorts of games for kids. All the parents had to do was to bring the kids to the venue and the kids ended up actually enjoying every moment of it.
It was so easy for the kids to have fun and parents became overwhelmed with the games and the entertainment at the game center.
During the event that was decorated with varying colours, parents organized their kids in different age groups as they waited to participate and compete in different games supervised by Spiderman and his helpers who afterwards awarded the best performers with prizes.
These funny party games were just what the kids needed to liven up the party and the event provided them and the parents with tons of laughs and memories.
Most of the games were easy to play like the folded T-shirt that required the fastest kid to unfold and wear the T-shirt and be the fast to tuck in and the water bottle filling, among others and many walked away with dazzling prizes
Half way between the competitions, the kids broke off for a mouthwatering lunch with their parents. The food was great thanks to the experienced chefs
