Have never done a party at home before and am very shy and retiring type so quite anxious. Daughter will be 6 and has asked for pet theme, so all decorations and prizes planned accordingly. Holding 2hr party for 10 kids in garden (house if it rains), Plan is - 1.decorate party bags, (have provided loads stickers, glitter glue, felt-tips etc) - 2. pin the tail on the donkey (have a box of lucky dip prizes planned with winner getting first choice, not sure whether to wrap these), 3. pass the parcel, 4. pet show (this is toy pets have asked all invitees to bring their favourite and have rosettes to give out plus poss make certificates, give choc buttons for pets wink), then food and cake. Does this sound like enough and appropriate for 6yos or do I need more?

This sounds lovely. I did a little party like this for my DD at the same age. My only advice would be to make sure you have another adult there for support. I didn't & no parents stayed. The girls got a bit over excited & one little girl running laps of my house managed to run head first into a wall before I could get her to calm down ! Luckily she was ok.........& no damage to my wall grin

Play guess the pet. Each takes a turn to pretend to be a pet and the others guess?

Sounds great. I would wrap the lucky dip, did this for ds's party and the surprise element and unwrapping caused much excitement.

Sounds good, but I think you may need a few games on standby I case you have time to fill - charades-type guess the pet sounds good, or musical pets - when the music stops they have to be whichever animal you shout out?
