I am in the process of planning my daughters 3rd birthday party.We are having a kiddie pool and maybe a bounce house , do you think I need games at the party ? What crafts can I have them do or put in the goody bags?  I also need ideas for decorations. I prefer to hand make some things so that its really creative and original but if I have to buy it already made thats fine with me :)

I already bought , the table cover , paper plates ,cups, birthday banner, balloons, and napkins ... what else am I missing ?

So far I have this for the goody bags , should I add more or is this okay ?

Bubbles (4oz size) , mini kalidescopes , & rings

what am i missing lol ?

For the goodie bag, you could get brown or white paper bag and have the kids decorate them wit markers and some Dora Stickers. What about a pinata? Most of them have pull sstrings so you dont' have to worry about kids getting hurt. Another thing I would add to the bag is the Dora fruit snacks.

Here is a website with some cute ideas.

How about getting a sombraro and putting chips in it? My daughter swears by Dora's map, so how about a rolled up map of something, like a treasure hunt in your yard? My friend had a Dora party for her daughter and served tacos and Mexican food. It turned out great.

 Thanks for the dltk-kids site , I am going to make some of their crafts to add to the cake table .. and I have brown paper bags so I am going to cut dora and her friends out and paste them onto the bags..

Since she will be 3 , we figured that the party shouldnt last more than 2 hrs, so for food is this okay ? too much or need to add more to the menu ? The kids are going to be from1yr-5 and maybe about 3-4 older kids ages 7-11. I was thinking hot dogs & burgers , chips and juice. Cake & cupcakes (im going to make) and jello (molded into dora).

For fun we're having a kiddie pool and maybe a bounce house

If you want a craft, have them decorate their own party hat! Simple! Plus they'll actually wear it at the party, right ? :)
