Hi, I hope you can help me. My son's 7th birthday party is on Sunday and we have booked a "football party" at the local sports centre. There will be 1 hour of structured football activities and mini matches (organised by the sports coaches) and then we have booked a party room for 1 hour afterwards. In the party room, I will give them a buffet party tea (sandwiches, crisps, cake etc) and then plan to do a few games. In total there will be 15 6-7 year olds (mainly 6 year olds and mainly boys).
Basically, I would like to have the 1 hour in the party room as planned as possible as I am so nervous of what will happen with that number of boys left to their own devices!
So, my questions are: How long do you think the tea will take?
What games would be good to do and how many games should I plan for?
I have already thought of doing the chocolate game (the one where you throw a 6, put on the hat,scarf and gloves and start to eat the chocolate until someone else throws a 6).
I had a similar gap of time at my ds bowling party and I did a quiz. I had a list of questions about their school, television, films, books, general knowledge and had a lucky dip bag when they answered correctly. They loved it and all sat still and really got into it.
