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.
In Good Favor _ Hand out goody bags at the end, as the children leave, so you greatly reduce the chance of lost items or misunderstandings. There are plenty of options __ if you are having a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse party, for example, purchase favors related to that theme _ stickers, notepads, pens, and more at all different price points. A popular favor, no matter what type of party your child may be having, are drink cups. They serve a dual_purpose __ you can use them at the party and then send them home with the guests. If you aren't thrilled with the idea of buying a bunch of small toys, consider buying one item __ a shovel and pail, a book or even coloring books and crayons. Make sure whatever you choose is clearly labeled with the child's name.
