Party season

This is party season. It's the time when the kids are going to parties almost every weekend on both Saturday and Sunday and also it's the time when I end up planning parties for both of them.

For the parties I have to run I plan to take the best from previous efforts and add to them.

The tentative plan for Hannah's party: party bag decorating (plain cotton bags and fabric decorating crayons), party bag shop, treasure hunt (we've done wool and ribbon so I need a new plan for this year, maybe money for the party bag shop), bouncy castle (need to negotiate with Ian), pass the parcel (maybe but this can get out of hand especially with 40 kids), hedgehog game, party food picnic boxes, balloon modelling.

Whereas Ethan's party is shaping up as follows: treasure hunt (probably eggs given I have about 100 plastic eggs in the loft), trampolining, bouncy castle, egg and spoon race, sack race, party food picnic boxes, party bag shop, pass the parcel, musical bumps, balloon modelling, half time ice creams.

One other item for consideration is newspaper construction of some kind (last year was make an outfit from newspaper and sellotape).

In any event, I need good weather and volunteers to help it all run smoothly.
