  • I went to, and found the CUTEST 1st birthday sets. I got DD a pinata that was in the shape of the number one, it had pull strings so no bat, that was nice lol. But all the kids enjoyed that.

  • You can rent a bouncer for the older kids, play pin the tale on the donkey, hot potato, bake cupcakes for the older kids to decorate. I have always have a craft my favorite craft is to make picture frames out of Popsicle sticks. I then take a polaroid picture of each child either in a group or with the family. Have the child/adult decorate the frame with glitter, stickers, glue on sea shells, etc when frame dries I glue the picture on the back of the frame put on a magnet write my child's name date on the back of the frame. This is a nice souvenir and can be used as a refrigerator magnet. My daughter is 18 and I have these frames from when she was in kindergarten with her friends to the age of 15 (she stopped making them)  This is parents all time favorite!!
