    It's not about winning or losing but I don't think every kid needs to get something.
    How old are your kids?

    I have an 8 month old DS. So obviously I don't have experience with him directly but I do have other kids in my life.

    I'm not sure why you asked this? Would my opinion not be valid if I don't have kids of party age?! Apologies if that's not what you meant but that's how it comes across to me.

    I'm also not the only one with that opinion in this thread.

    The other activities at DD's party will be everyone getting something too. I'm doing a leprechaun hunt with each leprechaun having a clue to the next one with the final one having a prize for all of them. I think they are going to have a great time
    That sounds fun. We're having a treasure hunt at DS's party next month - it's at a community centre next to a big park so we're giving all the kids treasure maps we make with clues to follow. Lots of little prizes along the way and a big prize at the end for each kid.

    Personally (and I didn't ask the question) I think the relevance of age is that often I found I held strong views about things when my kids were very young but then as my kids aged I had to let go of a lot of those views as I saw what worked and what didn't. I know often on BH people have views about school age kids and then when I find out their kids are eg 2yo I sometimes think to myself "ok, wait and see". Not you, just generally.

    No, fair enough I do understand this. And I've changed loads of my views on things since becoming a mother lol!

    I just thought it was strange to ask me that question as I'd ready conceded the point in an earlier post, and I wasn't the only one in the thread with that view but she hasn't asked anyone else.

    For 5 year olds something in each layer and no big prize is the way to go. For 8+yo's then one big prize at the end is fine. Having prizes in 3 layers is just weird. BUT, wrapping a pass the parcel with a little something in every layer is hard work - so fiddly!

    At my ds's 5th Birthday party we had a pass the parcel with something in every layer and what I was not impressed with was one child who complained loudly that he didn't like the present he got in his layer. Well, that's tough!

    This year at my ds's 6th Birthday party I didn't bother with pass the parcel and I won't be in a rush to do it again I don't think.

    Default Re: Kids pass the parcel - should every kid win

    I am one of those who do not think kids should always win but it is taking this theory too far to include pass the parcel.

    My son has a party every 2nd year and so they have been OTT and I do not apologise for it as I love preparing it all.

    I love the smiles kid and parents get when they see what is in their party bags (will not admit to how much they cost per head heh).

    Also I do not understand why party food needs to be all healthy,that is what during the normal week is for.At a party I want junk food just like the kids do
