Weather permitting we're having a picnic for DD's 4th birthday party on Friday (it's OK, we also have a wet weather plan!). We're holding it in our v quiet & scenic village park so there will be play equipment for the children to play on and I'm also planning and egg & spoon race and a treasure hunt. Just wondering if anyone else has any other ideas for outdoor party games?
