DS is currently in YR3 and has been at his new school for nearly two years.
His birthday is coming up in a few months time and we have both settled on seeing a Christmas Pantomime and going somewhere to eat afterwards. Other type of party venues (laser quest, go karting...etc etc) are coming up ridiculously expensive.
Unfortunately, this means that we can invite all of DS's classmates . AS DS is in a newish school, I would of loved to invite all the children ( They are only 9) to get to know one another etc etc but I can only afford 8-9 guests. DS has chosen about three friends from his old school and can invite four from his new school.
Is this fair ? Can anyone come up with better ideas or is my suggestion a realistic and fair option ?
If you did pool party you could invite everyone. Just another opinion but two of my daughters have in the past been invited to the Panto and I have felt quite sad as it's our family tradition to go over Christmas - I would much prefer it if they were invited to a pool party.
