Birthday Fair Party for a 6 year old

by Ruth Millner
(Dorset)

We enlisted the help of several friends and borrowed a hall setting up lots of stalls and a cafe. We got lots of bags of 2p pieces from the bank (most of which we collected up at the end) and each child was given a bag as they arrived, spending their money as they went round - party food was served in the cafe and cost 2p per item. Lots of parents stayed and asked if other siblings could stay too - we ended up having to recycle some of the coins as we used up the 40 bags we brought! We used old toys from Macdonalds etc as prizes. We also issued raffle tickets and each child came and got a prize when their number was called. Some parents (including the class teacher) said it was the best party they'd ever been to!

What a great party you organised. The idea of the coins was excellent. Saving Macdonald toys for prizes is also an excellent idea. It all sounded a lot of fun!
