My son is turning 6 and we're having a Lego party at a community center. They provide the legos, we provide the food. The party is from 11-1 (last 15 min are clean up time). So we have to serve lunch, but the lego activities go from 11-12:15. That leaves a half hour to eat lunch and cake before cleanup time. I'm also afraid kids will get hungry early, but also don't want them to spoil their lunch on snacks. So we're ordering pizza to arrive at 12:00 (they might not be done with legos yet but I want to allow time to eat). But what if kids are hungry early? I have a 2 year old who usually eats at 11. So, I was thinking of having strawberries and cheese and maybe also crackers as a snack (or is cheese and crackers too similar to pizza?). Last year I had a veggie assortment with dip and no one ate it. Also, I don't want anything messy that they will get on the legos. If the legos are gone by 12:15, that only leaves 15 min for pizza and then 15 min for cake if we serve cake at 12:30. Then we have to start cleaning up at 12:45 and be out of there by 1. I'm a slow eater too. But there is no refrigeration or any way to heat food so we can't really have anything besides pizza. For drinks I was thinking juice boxes for kids and water for adults, or should we have more choices? For the cake we were going to have a plain white cake with a lego Star wars thing my son built on top. He wants Lego Star Wars napkins with Yoda on them, but the invitations say nothing about star wars. I was going to have red, yellow, and blue plates for A lego colored theme, but that probably won't match the Yoda napkins. Last year I had themed plates, but the adults didn't seem to want to eat off of kid plates. There is also going to be a pinata with candy which they might be eating right before lunch at the end of the lego playing. The community center person said it's going to be free play with the legos. Do I need to plan activities with the legos? I thought they would do that, or do you think free play is fine? Help, I am not good at planning parties. Plus a couple people have not rsvp'ed so I'm not sure how many plates etc. I need to get.
