Keep the Fun, Ditch the Mess: Check Out Our Ultimate Soft Play Party Cleanup Hacks

Updated: 2 hours ago

Hey, amazing Seattle parents! Welcome back to Party Baby Seattle's blog. We get it—throwing a party for your little one can be so fun, but the cleanup? Not so much. That's why today we're sharing our favorite soft play party cleanup hacks that’ll help you make your place squeaky in no time. So, without further ado, let’s get started.

Start with Spill-Proof Supplies

Let's make life easier! Use cups with lids and straws, and opt for snacks in easy-to-hold containers. Think about including some yogurt tubes or pre-packaged applesauce. This right here is one of the best party cleanup tips that both you and your carpet will thank us for.

Cover Those Surfaces

One of the best kids party clean up solutions is to use wipeable tablecloths on your food and activity tables. They're easy to clean, reusable, and perfect for our bounce houses and ball pits. Just wipe away any spills, and you're good to go!

Stock Up On Wipes

Soft play birthday parties can lead to quite a lot of mess. Believe it or not, you can’t really control the little ones. So, it’s better to place kid-safe cleaning wipes near food stations, bathrooms, and play areas. These are game-changers for spot cleanups, and they keep the kiddos germ-free!

Smart Snack Choices

Snacks can create a bigger mess than you can imagine, so how about we ditch the mess-making food? You can try switching out cupcakes for cut fruit and avoid drippy sandwiches. Remember, soft play birthday parties are all fun and games to the tots, but for us, they’re about keeping those little hands and faces as clean as possible.

Designate No-Food Zones

One of the best party cleanup tips is to keep certain areas like play zones and activity tables as "No-Food Zones." It's a simple way to localize the mess and makes your post-party cleanup a breeze. But that’s not all. It’ll teach your kids how to follow the rules as well!

Stick To The Rules

If you're renting one of our awesome Party Baby Seattle packages, make sure to follow the posted rules to keep everything fun and safe. It's better for everyone and makes for an easier cleanup.

Set A Cleanup Time

Involving everyone to clean up the mess is one of the best party cleanup tips there is. Don't underestimate the power of a half-hour post-party cleanup window. Get some upbeat tunes on and make it a group activity. Trust us, your future self will thank you!

Give Reminders

We’ve found that tots, some of the time, don’t really know that they’re making a mess. It’s our job as adults to remind them. To do this, you can praise those who are neat and tidy—it sets a positive example for others!
