What to Consider When Making the Kids Party Guest List _ Small groups are recommended for young children. Some people believe that the number of guests should match the age the child is turning. If you feel a need to reciprocate for other kids' birthday parties your child has attended, consider reciprocating with a fun play date. Do you want to include extended family? If so, consider having a children's party and then a separate family pot luck or party.
Invitation Information _ An invitation should include all the basics __ address, date, time and the guest of honor, but there are other important nuggets that parents may be wondering about. Indicate if a child should be dropped off or if you'd prefer an adult to stay. (Dropping off usually begins around age 5 or 6, but it's still a good idea to let your preference be known.) If parents do leave their children, get a phone number where they can be reached if there are any problems. Also, note if you are serving food so people know if they need to feed their kids, and if possible, let them know what's on the menu to alert those parents who have kids with allergies. Include an RSVP date and don't feel funny about following up with a phone call if you don't hear back.
