Birthday party ideas?

My dd2 is turning 5 Tuesday.   This is the first year I have done anything but family parties for the kids.  She wants a "ladybug" party. I am a little tight moneywise right now, because we had unexpected car repairs, and are trying to save for vacation.  I hand made the invitations, and bought red and black balloons, tablecloths, and tableware.   I got a pinata on Amazon for $14.....   I'm thinking a treasure hunt and obstacle course.....  I need ideas for the obstacle course. We will have kids from ages 4 to 9.  Not wanting to spend any more money.....  Ideas, anyone?

you can have them make ladybugs using paper plates(cut them in half to make wings). then they can color them. If you do a treasure hunt, you could make it nature related.

oh and bubbles are a hit at ANY party, and you can make it yourself very cheap! If you make your own laundry detergent you'll have everything you need on hand anyway. It's just water, soap and glycerin (which gives the bubbles hold). I don't have an exact recipe, but there are tons on the internet
