Kids Favours??

Im having a kids table with about 9 kids ranging from 5 to 14 yrs. Do i give them favours and if so what do i give them, money is getting tight so i dont want to spend loads i thought of sweets but then with a crazy day and the choccie fountain at night and not to mention the free juice i think they will be sugared up enough.



I thought of wee coloring packs (not quite as nasty as the ones restaraunts give) but thought the older ones wouldnt really appreciate that.



Anyone else had this dilema.. or should i just not bother with the favours for them?

    I'm getting mine colouring packs - you can get uber cheap ones from The Works (which i did) they do disney princess/thomas/other branded items for really cheap prices. and im also going to get them some sweets and put them in the same things my favours are going into so they dont feel left out.



    The colouring books will hopefully keep them entertained.

    Hiya, I'm toying with the idea of a kid's table, I did read somewhere about putting a paper cloth on that table so they can draw on it with crayons etc, sweet idea but I thinki the finished look of it would drive me mad! I'm thinking little puzzles, lego set or something from pound land would work well and keep them entertained, maybe even a little magic set... I think we're also going to borrow some of the big garden games from the school I work at like giant jenga, connect 4 and snakes and ladders.... knowing my lot the adults will enjoy them too! hope that helps, get to pound land, you be amazed! x

    Hey , we also have quite a few kids coming, they are a range of ages too - We have got them activity boxes filled with toys, books and colouring stuff they are great . we got them from www.eventsmiles.co.uk and they are brilliant . got all the kids the "handy smile" boxes which were sweet and got each of our 4 bridesmaids larger "giggle" boxes, You can order them in the colour to suit your scheme and can have them personalised with their names on. They came really quickly and very pleased with them.



    Hope this helps!

    My brother had a kids table. Rather than individual goodie bags, the table had various colouring items on it, stcker books went down well. also Tesco had in their kids party bag section some trivia cards & joke cards (suitable for say 5 -10 year olds). i think you got 4 for a £1, they went down well. HTH



    Magic sets would be good. Maybe also put a list of quiet games they could play at the table eg I went to the shops etc, that way all ages can play.



    I would say don't put sweets on the table, they will be gone before the food comes out.
