My daughter is having her 6th birthday this weekend. We have invited 15 girls and 10 have RSVP'ed so far, ranging in age from 4 to 8, but mostly kindergarteners. There will be 5 adults here.
She has picked out a couple of crafts that she would like to do that we just plan to set out for the girls to do if they would like (stuff to make simple jewelry, foam crowns and wands to decorate, and coloring sheets). We had also planned a couple of games that they could play (Bingo, pin the tail and pass the parcel). There will be a pinata and we'll serve lunch.
What I am wondering is how much structure is appropriate? For this age, have you been more successful letting them just play or creating activities? I want them to have fun, but I am a little nervous about chaos. Or maybe chaos is just par for the course?
