This will be the first kiddies party that I've organise and even been to (well, since I was a little'un - over 30 years ago)

My DS will be 2, and we're inviting 7 children of a similar age to my house. I have a local lady who runs a toddler musical class that we attend, coming to do some age appropriate entertainment. Then I intend to give them lunch, have cake, sing happy birthday etc.

My question is, do I send them home with a party bag, and what would be in it?

Thank you

Get a job lot of bookpeoplebooks and put cake in a bag. No to plastic tat buti wouldn't have a party for a 2 year old as I am tight!

Sounds lovely - mine didn't have a party aged two as I am also mean, but the ones went to had terrible party bags with sweets and tat and they only ate the cake and threw the rest away. I'd second the book idea - the book people have collections and often work out about a pound each, add a slice of cake and the kids will be happy and you won't have spent money on something that isn't played with.

I also came to say book people multi pack and split it.

Age suitable sweets such as milky bar or buttons (I have older DC who would object to no sweets)

A Book People book (the Peppa Pig set used to be good value IIRC), slice of cake, and if you really want to do more, a packet of chocolate buttons/chocolate lolly (themed ones for different popular characters are sold in M&S) and a pot of bubbles. Let them take one of the latex balloons from the party (that gets those out of your way!). Sorted.

At about that age my DD's favourite going-home gift from a party we attended was a giant bubble wand. Other good ones I remember were a plastic football, or a latex balloon tied onto a little toy like a diecast car. Brilliant, and far better than a bag full of tat.

For that age I did bubbles, a board book, slice of cake and a packet of sweets...

I got a whole bunch of board books for a really good price on Amazon and they were all fairytale and fit my party theme.

At that age I did bubbles, finger puppet, box of raisins, stickers and a freddo frog. The finger puppets were £1.63 for 10 from Amazon, the stickers were a big sheet cut up.
