I have foolishly invited a bunch of my daughters schoolfriends to play as they all miss each other over the holidays. I invited a few on the basis that with holidays and other committments, they would not all be able to come. They can!!!!!!!! And some have sisters!

I have booked a bouncy castle to take thr pressure off, planned some food and bought stuff to make ice creams and mocktails.

What else can I do with 12 little girls, especially if it rains?

Girls are all 5 or 3 (mainly 5) - so quite sophisticated

Get a big table with pens, card, glue, scissors (safety, if appropriate!) glitter, string, old paper plates, cereal boxes etc - anything, really, and let them make stuff! I did this yesterday (I got all the mums to bring a bag of 'making' stuff) and the kids loved it!

I often do the craft type stuff (but in a hired hall). My house is no palace, but I cannot face any more glitter glue that takes me months to clean and ruins furniture ( I am a wicked Mummy)

Ooh, quite agree - we did it in our village hall! My house is too small and I would have been secretly having Bree-style panic attacks every time one of the kids disappeared off clutching a tube of glitter glue........
