We are hiring the school field and pool on the first day of the holidays for ds's 8th birthday party. (His birthday was in February - but better late than never!) He's going to invite his whole class - 32 children plus a few more - probably about 40 in all. I'm going to buy individual boxes for the food, and borrow a lot of footballs and outside play stuff from the school - hoops and cricket sets. We've also got a parachute.
The pool takes 20 at a time, so there'll only ever be about 20 to entertain in the field at any one time and I have bribed some of 13 year old dd's more sensible friends to come and help.
Can anyone think of anything new and exciting to add to the mix? The field and pool hire is incredibly cheap, so I don't mind spending a little bit on something extra!
