Being able to target all age groups when planning a company picnic can be tricky! Sure, bingo sounds fun to you, but are you inviting families? Will the kids enjoy sitting down for that long? Let’s not even mention those hard to please teens. The key to a good event is having entertainment that will be enjoyable for all ages. That’s where GOAT Event’s experience comes into play. We know how to plan for all ages, and we want to assist you by listing a few ways you can make the party a hit with everyone on your guest list.
When planning a picnic, you should choose your entertainment wisely. Our creative sales representatives can assist you with this in the initial planning phases. If you’re planning a family picnic, you need to plan for toddlers, kids, teenagers, adults and seniors. It helps to learn which attractions are generally most enjoyable to which age groups. Below is a starting point for each of these age groups:
Toddlers are sometimes too small to be involved with the “big kid” rides and games, so what kind of attractions do they enjoy? We have plenty of entertainment that is aimed directly at keeping your small ones busy including a giant lego area, little builders toddler zone and our Toy Town inflatable toddler zone.
Kids are possibly the easiest to please. They love bounce castles, slides and obstacle courses, but they also LOVE arts and crafts. We have a wide range of stations that will keep the kids on your guest list crafting unique gifts that they can take home and enjoy for years to come.
Unlike the kids, teenagers are the most difficult to please, but GOAT Events loves a challenge! Through the years, we have mastered the art of getting the teenager to have a blast (and it is an art)! Some great options are rock walls, sports inflatables with prizes, exhilarating rides such as the Wrecking Ball and laser tag (to name just a few).
Adults will feel like a kid again when GOAT Events hosts your event. They’ll have a blast with entertainment such as laser skeet shooting, 9-hole mini golf, corn hole and even inflatable obstacle courses!
Seniors generally like seated entertainment where they can have a great time in a shaded area. Some entertainment that will have the seniors on your guest list entertained include Bingo, Trivia, Game Shows, Casino games and entertainers such as magicians and hypnotists.
Next, you should consider the food you will have at your event. Hot dogs are great, but don’t you want the adults to really enjoy their meal? Add some pulled pork sandwiches and grilled chicken into the mix! It’s a quick and sure fire way to make your adults happy!
There are many ways to cater to all ages when you’re planning a company picnic. Let us help you on your path to making an event that will be the “Greatest of all Time”.
