  • Yea, how many kids & what are the ages of the other kids? We always did/do just family parties when the kids are that young. Dinner, open gifts & dessert.

  • I'd just set up a craft table for the bigger kids. Try Orientaltrading.com for craft kits.

  • You could blow up balloons and have them keep them up. They can make their own sundaes. Paint a pumpkin that they take home.play Legos. And keep the party short. 2 hours at most.

  • I know someone who gathered a supply of bubble wrap and brought it out during a party with young kids. They had fun stepping on it and popping the bubbles.
    A art or craft table stocked with appealing art supplies seems like a likely hit for a broad range of ages.
