I am going to be having a party for my sons 6th birthday next November, (starting to plan in advance as i can see this costing a fortune!)

I would like to do something a bit different, instead of party bags, i would like to use party cups, ive been to party where this was done before and it went down great! I have no idea where to find them though.
Does anyone know where I can find a hard plastic kids tumblers, that dont cost a fortune? they will have to be quite large to fit 'party bag' stuff in

and is there anywhere online (apart from ebay) where i can get good but cheap little toys from?

Also when you have been to kiddies partys, what have been good and bad parts?

We are planning on having a disco and party games, in our local club hall with buffet, and telling the kids to come in fancy dress.

Rep will be left for anyone who can help

home bargains..B&M and asda and tesco all do cheap party bag goodies...sainsbury's are expensive!! or...instead of spending a few kid on little party gifts which kids will get bored of quick why not get two things that they won't? asda do smart price crayons for like 11p and a doodle book.....put in some bubbles and you have a treat! or u can get really cheap stationary sets from home bargais...i find kids use this more than little banjo's etc...

disco is good...kids love musical statues....musical chairs get a bit risky!

good luck! kids are easy to entertain....have PLENTY of baloons...they can spend half an hour just kicking them around!

keep a look out at asda when they reduce party stuff - pinatas etc - especially when new ranges come in - they want to get rid of old stock

and of course poundland - got loads themed of party items in

try this site

I have used them before for my little boys first birthday, they do personalised banners, they are really good a bit pricy but worth it as its not the kind of thing you would find on the high street, they also do loads of good toys for the party bags, try ikea for the cups that you are looking for, hope you find something of help:-D

im not a fan of kids fancy dress partys. Kids dress up as power rangers etc and end up fighting. Each to there own, So to avoid tears dont do it. lol. Ive always had an entertainer & disco.
Definatly agree to keep your eyes open in home bargains.
My husband always laughs at how much i put in my boys party bags, i got a bit of a thing that its got to be full. My kids love party bags.
Good luck :)

We've had a couple of fancy dress parties for my boy/girl twins and have never had any problems with fighting kids. They all have a grand time but I guess it could be down to who we've invited :) Depending where you live entertainers can be pretty expensive and not all budgets will extend to having one.

As our twins birthday is around Christmas and their parties have been just into the New Year we usually get selection boxes for all the kids (reduced in sales) which the kids LOVE! Might seem a bit tight but I can't be doing with the hassle of party bags which from experience get looked into, half eaten and then tossed on the worktop and left untouched till I bin them a couple of weeks later.

Happy party-ing! :)

- Good idea to put a bit away each month if you can, its mad how much it all adds up too.

OP - Disco and party games are great fun....have done the entertainer bit (very expensive magician) who was fab but at £150 just for him and his sidekick to face-paint.......I'd rather thave given my two £75 each to spend on something they wanted if you know what I mean. The cost of him, food, prizes and selection boxes....OUCH!

What about learning to do face painting? You can pick up a half decent set in ELC for a tenner - get ideas off the web and you could have fun on the day making the kids up. We took photos of all our guests individually and afterwards I loaded them up to Photobox and had free prints done. Then I included them with the thank you cards, the kids (and Mums) thought it was great to have a reminder.

Kids will have fun if there's music to dance to and games to play - the usual - pass the parcel, musical statues, colour corners. Or they'll run around and make their own fun.

Have to say and perhaps I'm just being a miserable cow, that it's all a bit OTT these days with parents trying to out-do each other. I just think back to our own childhood when you went to a party in someone's house and had an absolute ball and you left with a slice of cake wrapped in a serviette and a prize if you were lucky enough to win a party game . Only plus I can see to having it in a hall or some such is that you don't have the mess to clear up out of your carpet at the end.

Just relax, go with what you're comfortable with, most of us spend the whole party worrying too much to enjoy it which is daft really.
