I work for a mobile beading party service that comes to Ancaster and Hamilton and we entertain children at birthday parties by making jewelry with them. We would love to help you with your daughter's party. Here is a link to our site www.beadingbuds.com.

i'll be throwing a birthday party for my daughter in december and she loves princesses, maybe you can do a disney princess/cars or other disney movie you son likes and have them do crafts involving them you can print off on disney.com. the girls can also dress up as their favorite princess and boys as their favorite disney charicter, or bring a toy of them if they dont have costumes for it and have them make up a play. you can always adjust it to how you need.

I would suggest, skating, chuck e cheese, or look in your area for an indoor playground or inflatable toy indoor playground. If you want to stay home, why not do a scavengar hunt for kids? or a drive in/sleep over where all the kids have a blanket, you turn off the lights and have popcorn and everyone watches movies. You could even bag the popcorn and have them "buy" it off of you!!

you could book a play centre; they aren't too expensive in my area,about $100 for up to 15 kids plus cake. and you don't have to clean up!

I don't know how much space you have, but you could try to do an indoor carnival. Set up a few different game stations, buy dollar store prizes, have cake/ice cream, and open presents. Or as I was reading Emily's murder mystery idea I thought of a Pirate themed party and you could have a treasure hunt. The prize could be the goody bags with all the kids names on them. I'm not too sure that would work for your 8 year old, but you could always give her a special day and let her have a couple girls over for a sleep over. You can google party themes and a lot of good themes will come up.

Quoting Pamela:

you should try a magician (i dont know there, but here in Tijuana Mex. its not so expensive)


 



I had a magician for 2 of my birthdays when I was little. Both my friends & I LOVED it. Ours was a friend of the family so I'm not sure how much it might cost either. I think it was worth it though.

If your bowling alley has deals like ours (days when games are only a quarter) you could do that. Since there's bumpers it can be fun for everyone.

Try a murder mystery type party. I know it sounds morbid, but any kids love playing detective. It is also a great way to keep them indoors. Light a fire, dim the lights and have the kids going from room to room collecting clues, recruit some people to answer questions when asked and things like that.



Another idea is always a pajama party. Just because it is the day doesn't mean you can't have a pajama party. Have the kids come over later in the day. Let them build a fort in the living room, tell stories, play games, and help make dinner or something.



Just a few ideas...
