My daughter loves invitations like most six-year-olds I know. She usually comes running in the door with a shout of glee when she has just received any new invitation to a friend’s party. It’s natural that kids should be so excited about birthday parties because they equate them with a lot of fun, games, cake and loot bags.
For my daughter though, making invitations is just as much fun. When she was younger, she used to spend hours thinking about it and then making the invitations up herself. Now, a bit older, she takes less time because she has become more efficient in creating them.
Of course when she gets old enough, she’ll probably insist on buying the invitations. By then, places like Checkerboard might be known as the place to get invitations for all occasions even to six-year-olds.
