i am arranging a party and would like some ideas for kids cocktails.

the venue is not at my house so it cant be anything frozen, gotta be something i can easy make from such things as lemonade, vimto, pinapple juice etc.

just a couple of large jugs of something?

also wanted a couple of games for them.

i have thought of name the teddy, and how many beans in the jar? can you think of anything else.

thanks guys

love kez

just a note about the games, sorry didnt make it clear. not games really for them to play, like pass parcel.

more like games you would find at a summer fete or something to win prizes.

Many years ago I worked in an Italian restaurant and we used to serve a drink called a 'sunshine cocktail' it was for the kids and they loved it.
If I remember correctly it was made with orange squash,lemonade and grenadine syrup,make the orange and lemonade first then add some grenadine syrup.The grenadine sinks to the bottom of the glass so the drink is red at the bottom and orange at the top.

A bit more fussy than what you probably want to do,I know,but I am sure the kids will be delighted.

Kids like anything messy ... so smashing custard pies on targets is fun. Once went to a fete with like teddy raffle. They had lots of teddies and I would say 1 in 4 tickets one. Teddies were second hand so not expensive.

Face painting is always a winner and is not very difficult.

Icecream milk shakes are good. I know you have no freezer but a cool bag would keep ice cream cold enough for milkshakes.

Draw a big Treasure Island 'map' on the back of an old poster. Mark a grid of about 1" wide squares over the top. Give each child a sticker with there name on, and get them to stick it to the map as to where they think the 'treasure' is hidden. (remember to decide in advance just where the booty is!)

Old favourites like pin the tail on the donkey as well

Pin the tail on the donkey?
What happened to pin the tail on the birthday boy?

A nice treasure hunt is always fun. 5 sets of 10 clues leading on one prize. Divide into teams and set em loose following clues. Have a creme egg at each clue (as they are so cheap right now, can get 24 for a quid here!). Big bar of choccie or a teddy or something at end.

That sounds similar to a drink that i order in the summer if i'm driving and had enough of carbonated drinks.
Glass of chilled pure orange with a shot of blackcurrant cordial added. Do NOT allow it to be stirred - it'll looked like something emptied out of a carpet cleaner!! Tastes really yummy though - like a fresh fruit jelly

Hi, I'd certainly go with face painting too. If they don't care too much what they look like they love painting each others' faces too. Also if it's anywhere remotely suitable my eldest son has always said his very favourite idea for a party would be to have a food fight!! Can't quite imagine a suitable venue, but the kids would LOVE it. :thumbsup:

PS This is my first ever post on a forum of any sort, and the previously mentioned eldest son just made the avatar for me. Probably against copyright, but I thought he did a gr8 job in five mins.!

It's a funky av leighrebecca! I doubt Paul (Admin) will mind, might be nice to pm n check though.
#11
Not sure how old the children are.. but at my daughters birthday we did "Magic Drinks"

Put a small amount of different food colourings into cups and then fill with lemonade
Kids loved the fact that different coloured drinks were comming out of one bottle thought it was Magic!!:giggle:
#12
Something we used to do was buy a packet of plain biscuits (e.g. rich tea) and put bowls of icing and sweets and stuff out - let the kids decorate their own biscuit.

Mum used to do this when the toddler group she run had a fete and was always the most popular stall! Kids love it!
#13
wow guys these ideas are great!!
defo gonna make the drinks

anyone got any more ideas for drinks??
#14
Kids like to be grotty - so you can chuck a couple of Jelly worms say into a jug of Lime cordial or limeade and it call it slime juice!
#15
yes thats cool crunchy
#16
I used to like lemonade mixed with pure orange juice and a bit of apple and blackcurrant (undiluted) dilute juice
#17
bit of vodka, bit of whisky, and a bit of rum = one quiet birthday party for mum.
#18
lol sean... sounds like a good idea.. i like that idea kelly. gonna make all these at weekend and try them... x
#19
get empty crisp boxes , stack them together , paint them or decorate them and put funny or monster faces on the front with the holes in the boxes for the mouths, throw tennis balls or bean bags into the mouths, different points for each mouth

For cocktails, try pineapple juice with a dollop of pomegranite molasses in it- it'll look like a tequila sunrise! Except with no gut rotting, stomach destroying tequila in it....
#21
Take photographs of items really close up and then get the kids to guess what the item is

Put some items in a box and have the kids feel inside and try to guess what is in there

It's a syruppy type stuff that is used for making cocktails & can also be used in cooking- it's yummy!
You can get it at specialist food shops, or here- http://www.hardtofindfoods.co.uk/cgi-bin/cart/cart.pl

cant seem to find it on that site?? where have you bought it from previously?? :p
[admin]#25
On this site!

Go down to the bottom of the homepage, click search and type in "Molasses" and it'll come up. It's £2.49 a bottle but postage is steep, I order it with loads of other stuff normally- I'm just having a look to see if anywhere else stocks it!

Sainsburys stock it apparently! In the exotic foods section-

Ginger Ale Shandy! Two parts ginger ale mixed with one part lemonade and it looks like shandy in the jug

Tropical fruit juice or pineapple mixed with soda on ice- like alchohol free bacardi breezers!

A good thing to do aswell is take all the glasses that are going to be used- get two bowls, one with some of the molasses, another with sugar and dip the rim of the glasses in the molasses, then in the sugar. The sugar sticks to the molasses and looks (and tastes) fab!

Or there's virgin-pinacolada, that's coconut cream (buy tins of amoy or blue dragon coconut cream in any supermarket), pineapple juice served with ice. Use two parts pineapple to one part cream and use LOADS of ice- it's yummy!

I used to have to come up with these when I was a wedding planner to keep older kids happy at functions :thumbsup:
