Dd is having her 7th birthday in a museum next Sat. They spend 3 hours there going round a bit, making things and the idea was it was to be in the afternoon and I take cake and drinks. Now it has to be from 11.30-2.30 so they'll need lunch. What can I take with me?

I have to carry it right through the museum to the room they're using, can't heat anything up and there is no fridge. I don't think they'll eat much really but apart from cake and drinks, not sure what else to take.

My experience of birthday parties at home has been they don't eat anything including the cake!

Cold sausage rolls
cheese and pineapple sticks
cooked cocktail sausages
cold pizza
you could make fruit skewers

that's quite a lot, I wasn't planning on putting too much work into it really. See I need to re-think it

LOL - wasn't suggesting you did all of that - just some ideas.

What sort of museum is it? Just a thought, but if it was something like the Natural History, you could have dinosaur sweets or crisps, just to keep in with the theme.

No, sadly the dinasour one is booked out a year in advance at the moment. That's the one I wanted. They're making counterfeit money.

I could be very clever and make a cake that looks like a banknote or something. Good thinking, those foil covered coins maybe. THey'll need a bit of normal half-way healthy lunch-type stuff though so they don't get all hyper and go beserk in there.

We once went to a party in a forest and the dc got little lunch bags with a couple of different sandwiches (egg in one, tuna in other) and a bunch of grapes, a drink in a carton and a little bag of crisps and then the birthday cake on a picnic table. It was just right and all of the dc ate everything up. As you say they don't eat much usually and you could just hand them each a bag.
