  • The only kids-party I went to that had adult games, she ended up focusing more on the adult part and neglected the fact it was the kids birthday.

    My opinion, just make it about the kid.

  • as for your birthday party make it their birthday. As for the adults they will talk and watch the party action and will not get bored. But if want to just include them in the party some way have them write they wish the birthday kid. Or have them guess what they will be when they grow up that sort of thing for their scrapbook. Then have adult sandwiches and snacks and not just cake for them.

  • My son celebrated his birthday in Oct 23rd, and I have to be honest I just had visiting, timed it where my Son was the entertainment we had a meal all together and then opened gifts, and then chatted when he went to bed. No reason to do any games. It's his first birthday, just relax and enjoy it!!
