  • The weather should be nice.....just go and buy some hula hoops, balls, jump ropes, etc and let the kids play. Time will fly by and they certainly won't miss structured activities.

  • yup definately just put a bunch of toys outside and let them run free, at that age they aren't all going to sit down and do structured stuff anyways, someone will always run off to do something else.

  • hula hoops, bubbles, chalk, a kiddie pool. just things they can run around and do themselves, they won't want structured activity anyway.

  • A craft project is fun. They could decorate their own goody bags, or small wooden boxes.

  • Check out this birthday stuff http://www.cjkidz.com/Birthday%20Resource%20Page.html  Each theme shows games too.  Competition games, face painting, cake walk (but with a toy rather than a cake), Simon Says, Freeze Tag, kids bingo, put a few kid friendly objects on a tray, remove them and ask them which one was removed.  Scavenger hunt.  I could go on and on!
