Help! What kind of toys should I get?

We are having my hubby's entire family over for dinner Saturday. We have dinner all planned out but I haven't had small kids in my home in a very long time. There will be 18 kids ranging from newborn to age 17.

I was thinking coloring books and Nerf footballs. Plus my DD has an obscene amount of dress up clothes that I had collected for her when she was about 8 or 9. (I had bought used dance costumes and prom dresses on ebay)

Any ideas ladies? TIA!

Great idea but I think my yard is too small.

Looks on your towns FB virtual yard sale. I bet you could find all kinds of fun games and toys.  reg deck of cards or Card games, board games,. If you have an iphone you can download "head up" its great for all ages. Along with some of the free group games.

You could always ask them to bring some of their own toys, since you don't have small children. Also, get bubbles! Kids love bubbles! Your back yard is super cute, by the way!
