Kids Spa Parties: A Great Way For Your Kids To De-stress For Their Birthday

Kids spa parties are a fun and exciting way for kids to learn to de-stress and turn off from all of the distractions in their lives, to simply relax. These parties are also a lot of fun. Little girls get to just be kids for a day, without all of the distractions of school and after-school activities.
Manicures and facials are by far the most popular activities at the kids spa parties. Every little girl loves to get her nails painted, and the cute nail art designs that they can get make it even more fun and exciting. From bunnies to cupcakes, zebras to rainbows, these little girls have chosen everything you can think of to have painted on their nails. The designs stay on for quite a while, long enough to show their friends in school, post to instagram and facebook, and show their relatives and friends.

The facials are extremely popular, too. Little girls love to watch each other get the masque applied, and especially love the cucumbers on the eyes. Many times girls have taken pictures of each other with the cucumbers on, and then posted them to their instagram and twitter accounts right then, giggling the whole time!:-)

Chocolate is one of the most popular activities, too, since little girls love to eat chocolate, and there is nothing better than chocolate dipped strawberries! And as scientific research has found, chocolate helps you to relax by releasing opiate substances in the brain as well as endorphins (click to view some of the research about chocolate)

So, many of the activities that kids get to do at the spa parties are relaxing just because they are fun, where other activities actually have chemical and scientific reasons for being relaxing. This make kids spa parties all the more fun and enjoyable for everyone invited.

Kids Spa Parties: Helping Kids Learn To Relax

Kids today are so incredibly busy! With their fast-paced lives of soccer practice, karate class, outings with friends, and other after school activities (not to mention school itself!) kids today are busier than ever, and certainly busier than their own moms were when they were kids. So how do they learn to de-stress and just let go? To just relax and be their own person?
Well, to help your kids learn to relax and just be, we offer kids spa parties at home. The at home part actually makes it so that the mom can get to relax and just be also, but this article is about the benefits to your kids. The most relaxing services that we offer are the facials and the massages. But, we also create a spa atmosphere in your home, with candles, music, and everything else so your kids can just relax and enjoy their day.

Massages, as everyone knows, are very relaxing. All of the stress that kids today have from their very demanding lives can melt away while they are getting their massage. Tight shoulders, tight necks, and tension in their backs can all be relieved by their massage at the girls’ spa party.

Facials are also very relaxing. The facials are a time when kids can just relax, breathe, and let their tension go. During the masque portion of the facial, they do simply that: relax and lie still while the facial ingredients help their skin.

So, while some may think that kids spa parties are a frivolous event, devoid of any helpfulness to kids, I think that teaching them to relax is a very valuable lesson. Especially since they can take that relaxation with them into their daily lives: school, after school activities, homework time, and basically any time of the day that they are feeling stressed.

Kids Spa Parties – You Are Only Young Once!

Many parents of young children are concerned about having a kids spa party for their young daughter. Articles in the news recently have raised concerns about these types of parties, attempting to prove that kids spa parties will raise daughters who believe that they should spend all of their money on manicures, facials, and massages.

The same article blames kids spa parties for raising financially non-savvy women in our society. However, kids spa parties have not been around for very long, and there are already many women who spend all of their money on manicures, pedicures, facials, and the ever popular shopping. It is our belief that these fears about kids spa parties are unfounded, and you can link to a blog that discusses this at length by clicking here.

Many parents see kids spa parties as a good thing, a welcome change from birthday parties at places like Chuck E. Cheese, or with backyard bounce houses, pony rides, or pool parties. Many of the kids spa parties which we host are also slumber parties, which is a cool way to have two types of party in one with very little effort on the part of the parents.

In our opinion, little girls should be allowed to be just that, little girls. Kids spa parties give them an opportunity to just be a little girl for a day, with nothing expected of them except for their participation. Little girls can have their nails painted, they can have what is likely their first experience of a facial, and they can have what is likely their first professional massage therapy session. Even their hair can be styled in whatever way they like.

There is no pressure on the girls for them to choose any one service, as they are each allowed to choose whatever services they themselves prefer. Little girls love to have their nails done, and we believe that they are only young once, and they should be allowed to experience manicures, pedicures, facials, and the other services while they are still young.

There will be plenty of time later in their lives for them to polish their nails again, and for them to go for a real massage or facial, but for this one day they can just be a kid and have these services done for them. Since they are only young once, a girls spa party is an experience well worth having, that they will likely remember for their whole lives.

Hotel Kids Spa Parties: All of the Fun, None of the Mess!

Kids Spa Parties are always a lot of work for the parents, even when a Kids Spa Party service, like ourselves at Mountainside One Site Massage, is hired to do the spa activities with the children. Parents usually prepare food, do their own decorating, mail out invitations, take photos, and do a great deal more, in order to get an event space ready for the party.

Our very first Kids Spa Party was held in a hotel room. So, from our very beginning, we've seen how well Girls Spa Parties work in such a setting. All of the kids are in one place. No one can get lost upstairs, and break little sister's Barbies. (It's happened, sadly.) Logistically, having all the guests in one hotel room is easier to manage, from the point of view of safety. There's nothing there but what's brought there, and no place to wander unsupervised.

But that's not all. Kids Spa Parties in Hotel Suites also require a lot less preparation. Unlike your own home, which must be cleaned up, top to bottom, before any guests arrive, your hotel room will be immaculate (in a good hotel, that is!), all ready for decorating and set up of cold or hot food. Not having to get everything cleaned and prepared is a great aid to making any party preparation easier.

After the party's over, cleanup is also a breeze, with a Kids Hotel Spa Party. It's a smaller area to clean, and all that's required is to call the front desk. Help will usually arrive within minutes to take your refuse, and that's it. All that's needed is for the waste to be placed in bags and closed securely. That's surely a lot easier than having to drag cans to the curb. And as for the rest of the hotel room, as long as it's left neat and clean, you're set. No hotel expects guests to clean a hotel room to the extent they would their own home. After you leave, the staff does that.

Finally, kids can be messy. If you have fine furnishings and your own children are well behaved, realize not all the other kids may be so inclined to behave well at other children's homes, and that there may be a real threat of damage to expensive or rare furniture. The worst that can happen at a hotel is a spill on the rug - which is no trouble at all for the staff to clean up, and usually no added expense for the registered guest, either. Aside from the threat of spills, there's little else kids can do to mess up a hotel room!

Kids Spa Parties Lead Tweens to Future Financial Ruin! (Or So Some Would Have Us Believe)

Spa parties for girls in the tween to teen range are very popular right now. It is more than a passing fad, as Kids Spa Parties are actually a great birthday party idea for girls of all ages. As with most topics, there are sharply divided lines as to viewpoints about Spa Parties.

Some believe that Tween Spa Parties are damaging to young girls, specifically that they help foster a worldview that is mutually exclusive with financial savvy. One such adherent to this belief is Chelsea Emery. Her Reuters piece, "Spa Parties and Money-Smart Daughters," (7/2012) details her ideas about why she feels kids spa parties are a negative influence on young girls.

We at Mountainside On Site Massage Therapy disagree, strongly. We provide on site Therapeutic Massage and work at parties and events of all sorts, both corporate and private parties, providing chair massage to guests. We also offer a Kids Spa Party package for girls, right in their own home or hotel suite. We know, from firsthand experience, that Spa parties do no harm to the development of young attendees, and instead actually help girls to have a better self image.

On our web site, NJMassage.Info, we host a blog that deals with Massage Therapy, for the most part. As we offer Massage Parties and Spa Parties for kids, these topics are sometimes discussed as well. Our recent article, "Spa Parties, Money Skills, and Their Lack of Real Correlation: Considering the Matter Further" expands on the notion that Spa Parties for Girls are anything but bad for children. Instead, they provide a setting for girls to socialize and play, talk and eat, and just be themselves.

The popularity of Kids Spa Parties isn't going to wane any time soon. It's a memorable event that the Birthday Girl will cherish as she grows up. Simply knowing that her parents care enough to lavish so much attention is a gift in itself. Most of the Birthday Girls have been, in our experience, wonderful children, very respectful and appreciative. By no means is the meme of the spoiled-brat-daughter apparent, and it's doubtful that getting her nails done and having a facial is going to change that!

We also authored another article about girls, self-esteem, and Kids Spa Parties. That article may be found here on our web site.
