    Default Do you prefer am or pm kids birthday parties?

    As a parent:

    If your child was invited to a party in the afternoon (2:30 - 4:30pm) would you go? OR Would you have preferred a morning time slot?

    Morning definately. I think kids tend to be more tired in the afternoon and their behaviours can be all over the place.

    depends on age I think. as a 4 year old my DS can do either but him as a 2 yo, mornings would be better as he was grumpy in the afternoons

    Bummer :-( This probably explains why we are the only people at the park every afternoon... It's the perfect time of day, don't have to worry about sunburn and the cool breeze is awesome! It's just too hot in the morning at the park :-(

    I prefer morning but it wouldn't bother me if the girls were invited to an afternoon one.
    If they've been to one and are hyper or grumpy afterwards I try and keep them up for a bit and do the dinner and bed time routine early and they usually settle well.

    ETA my twins are 3.

    Note: there will not be colours /nasties to hype kids up at our party... If that makes any difference. I'm worried that people won't come if it's afternoon.. Thats my reason for asking.

    For sure, but my youngest is 4, if I had younger children I might prefer the morning but our weekend mornings are taken up by sport for our older kids so afternoon parties suit us best.
    Miss 6 had her party recently - 2pm to 4.30pm and everyone came

    I think it depends on the age, now DD is getting older afternoon/evening parties work well as she comes homes and just chills out before jumping into bed but when she was younger and more effected by sugar mornings worked better so she could wear it off before bed

    My DS is only 2 so by 3pm at the latest he needs a sleep or will be overtired/cranky so mornings would be better, I would still go to an afternoon one but would either leave early or go late and try get him to nap earlier! His party this weekend starts at 10.30am

    I think there is a theme here - the younger the child, the earlier the party

    I posted before about miss 6 having her party at 2pm. Miss 12 goes to parties that start at 5pm. I think it's one of those natural progression type things iykwim.
