My daughter is turning 6 in september. Last yr she had a big party in a soft play centre, In jan we moved to a new area and she is in a new school where she is only just settling in. It seems that now she's older it's more usual for mums to leave their children at parties but I wd prefer to have a small party so I can keep an eye on how she's doing (she is a shy child and has had a some problems settling). Does anyone know of anything fun to do with a group of about 5 children ages 5-6? I want it to be special and personal, she is not too bothered about the cinema or eating out..any thoughts?

what about something off beat If your child is like mine and into animals take a group off friends to an animal shelter if you call first they usually have programs for scout troops with tore and teaching the kids about care off the animals. Or contact a local lesson barn and have a group grooming lesson and pony rides when parents know animals are involved they usually hang out out of curiosity and it will be something different form the pack.

My daughter who just turned 10 in November had a GlamRgirlz party. It is actually hosted by someone and it is a local business here in Louisiana. But, you could go to the site to view what was done. Kind of like a dress up party, get their hair done (by you & aunts or other moms), make up done, dress up, walk the runway, do some karaoke. glamrgirlz.com is the website. Very cute idea. Also spa parties are big here. Nails & hair done. I also agree with Krista & Monica above (bowling & build-a-bear) would be great too.......less clean up for mom.

A dress up tea party is a fun idea, have the kids come dressed up that crazier the better. Encourage either costumes (past halloween cistumes or just wearing an old dress of their mom's) lots costume jewelry, hats... have little sandwhiches and drinks in little tea cups thy can keep. For games do traditional things like musical chairs, hot potato, pin the tail on the donkey, telephone. This will give you some control over keeping everyone included and see how your daughter interacts with her friends.

For my sons 6th birthday we had an art party. I cut shapes out of foam and bought bags of feathers and glittery pom poms, sequins etc and then I made frames out of the foam also and stuck magnetic tape on it. From this they made photo frames they could stick up on their fridge. I also made rectangular biscuits that they made paintings on with lollies and icing. He had 8 people including himself and his brother and it is still one of his all time favourite parties. Mums and kids raved about it for weeks and they were all contained at a table where they could be easily supervised.

what about Build-a-Bear? They have everything planned and organized for you.

We had a really good time doing a bowling party for my son one year. The kids are all in one area so not hard to keep track of and many bowling alleys have party rates and packaging and things.
