Hi all really need your help. I have my son’s 2nd birthday on Saturday. I have 7 children coming and waitfor it……………………22 adults
I need ideas on how to entertain them. Was planning on cooking pizza’s for the adults and then cocktail sausages and gougon’s for the kids. But how do I keep them all entertained????
Any ideas??April 2, 2008 at 9:56 am #58277
I have a number for bouncy castle if that helps ❓ ❓ ❓April 2, 2008 at 10:10 am #58292
The kids are all a bit too young for a bouncy castle and the adults a bit too old 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆
Have some bubbles and dvd’s and cd’s for the kids..its the adults i’m worried about 😆 😆 😆 😆April 2, 2008 at 10:13 am #58295

Hi Gismo 🙂
How abt getting a Magician 😉April 2, 2008 at 1:00 pm #58340scole1Member
why not have games set out for the kids or do something like get the kids to help make the rice crispie cakes it’ll be messy but still they’ll have fun, you could do dancing or something to silly music it’s amazing how kids will copy you when you do the dancing, (sit and watch hi5 or cbeebies) seriously they’ll copy ya do a race with them or do let’s pretend to be a dinosaur, tiger etc……get the kids to do fancy dress that’s fun too and even get balloons you could get the kids to decorate them, with glue and coloured paper……most of the kids will sort of entertain themselves why not try and see if you can get an enterainter they can cost a few bob but if prepared for that you’ll be fine…
do the old fashioned games like pass the parcel but one thing i’d say is have one for all the kids so there’s no fighting especially at that age….
main thing is to sit down figure out what you are going to do then plan it properly and do a time sheet have everythign ready to go even post it on the fridge so you have it there to read off, it will be manic but you can do it if well sorted…..
most of all have fun…April 2, 2008 at 2:00 pm #58353
💡 Gismo i think you should get scole1 to plan your party, 🙂 she has it all covered. 🙂 🙂 🙂April 3, 2008 at 9:28 am #58443YvonneMember
Hiya Gis! What ages are they, are they about C’s age or a bit older – just have plenty of toys about and hope that the weather is good enough that they can play outside… if the weather is bad, maybe they could watch a DVD or something….April 3, 2008 at 11:09 am #58482
Scole thanks a million. i think you should come over to my house and organise it for me 😆 😆 😆 😆
You have given me great ideas.
Yvonne, the ages are from 2 months old, 9 months old, 1 year old, ds, then 3 year old, 9 year old, 10 year old, and 13….oh the fun.
For the older kids i have the wii or the play station set up in the sitting room which will have a couple of adults present at all times so they don’t damage themselves.
In the playroom have all the toys and have dvd’s of singalong with barney, thomas the tank engine and going to do a story telling for about half an hour which hopefully will keep the smaller ones entertained.
Also have bubbles for outside and a slide so fingers crossed all goes wellApril 3, 2008 at 11:33 am #58491YvonneMember
Sounds like you have it sorted then! You should call into Butterlys just outside Dunleer, they sell goujons, cocktail sausages… and have good value on them too! Worth a look.April 3, 2008 at 3:22 pm #58534
Whereabouts is Butterly’s was looking at chicken gougons in dunnes and they were a complete rip off. Got banners and balloons etc loads of bits and pieces so think i’m organised now.
