    So many variables to this question! If it's just your child and the other child I wouldn't take anything. As others have said, the host will end up with an abundance of food. If it's a few children I might be tempted to take a fruit platter.

    If you feel you *need* to take something what about a bunch of hand picked flowers to say thanks for having us?

    I've never been on a playdate so what do I know, anyway? Lol. Do the parents stay or is it a drop off/pick up later thing? If you're staying you could bring a little tub of dip and crackers? Nothing OTT, just a little thing to put out?
    And it doesn't even have to be food - maybe just a couple of cheapie bottles of blowing bubbles? A sheet of stickers for the kids to share and play with?
    God no no bubbles!!!! Didn't you read my comment on the party bag thread?!!! I hate them 😂.

    But no really when I invite kid over its to play with my kids so when I say bring nothing I mean it. I don't go overboard with food at all. And yes if you want to stay and have a cup of tea (or wine if it's the end of the day) then perfect. Kids under 5 parents usually stay.

    The kind of person whose kids come home and despite knowing they can't open the container / hold the wand / blow the bubble insist of doing it themselves only to get the mix over everything.

    Oh yes, that. I have a 3 year old, I do understand, haha. I guess bubbles are good "in theory" 😉

    OMG and the tears when it all goes tits up and the mixture is in a puddle at their feet. The tears 😱😱.

    I'd start a change.org petition against those $1 bubble wands if I had the energy. The landfill!!!!

    Rant over. Hate 'em.

    As my 10yo would say "I have a life hack to solve this problem". Take two long cable ties and attach the giant bubble wand to a post...no more spills and every time you get a new one tip the bubble mix in the one attached to the post... problem solvered?
