Age is an Important Number _ Make sure everything, from activities to goody bag treats, is age_appropriate for the majority of your guests. If there is a wide range of ages, use the age of the birthday child as a guide. The child's age is also a good indicator of how many children to invite, the rule of thumb generally is one child for every year plus 2. So if your child is turning four, try to keep the guest list at six children. Age also plays an important role in setting the theme and deciding where to have your party. Younger children might be comfortable in a home but feel your child out to get a good read on the situation.
Think about inclusion. Be considerate of children's feelings. If you decide to host a large birthday party, either invite the entire class or don't distribute invitations at school. It is fine to invite just your child's close friends, but the invitations should then go out by post or email.
