Pen and paper games like consequences, pictionary or hangman. Have a kind of "Olympics" with lots of different games, challenges, puzzles and then a leader board and award medals. You could then have karaoke but as part of what they do.
DD is going to have 6 friends over after school for her birthday. I'll bring them all back after school and they can stay until about 8. I know they'd be happy running around madly for 4 hours but I'd like to make the occasion seem a bit more special and entertaining than just back to ours for tea. They're at a sleepover and DVD party the weekend before so i'd like to make it different.
So far my brain is ticking over and coming up with these types of ideas: they could make ice cream sundaes, make something crafty, Pottery, Silly games of the type they do at Brownies/Guides, karaoke (although DD1 says only one of the girls will like that) Something like Build a Bear but for 9/10 year olds?
Do you have any suggestions or have you done any of the above mentioned and would it work with this age group?
