    Obviously pricing could be a bit tricky, but it's a great idea!

    Default Kids craft parties - would you?

    Thanks for all your feedback girls

    Having done some thinking last night can anyone answer the following questions, if I was to have everything precut and the kids simply glued and painted, would I need public liability? Is it possible to have the parents sign some sort of waver? The way I see it if I am going into their homes, there will obviously be extra supervision at the party, so perhaps it wouldn't be needed? I can see needing public liability as being my biggest killer, I don't have the money to outlay and it would eat up almost all my income.

    I've looked around online and seen other places that do this, one charges $200 for up to 10 kids then $15/child extra, plus travel costs, to simply decorate a photo frame, so I'm thinking maybe $150/10 kids then $10 /child extra plus $50 travel/setup, does this sound fair?

    And are then organisations I can speak to in regards to everything I need to make this dream come true? I know I'd need an accountant for the financial side but there's so much more when setting up a business.

    TIA xx

    Have a look at NEIS, there for job seekers but if your only working part time they may still be able to help you. They help people start up new businesses, write plans and supplement income for up to a year.

    I think it's an awesome and would definitely use it.
    As legal liability, I work in home insurance and the party goers would be covered for any harm to themselves but if you hurt yourself in a clients home you wouldn't have cover. There may also be exclusions around the fact they are doing an organised activity in the home. Call a few insurance companies to cost legal liability, it's not always that high especially when your going into others homes.
    Good luck with it all!!
