DD is turning 5 soon. I'm thinking of having an afternoon tea party at our house. I told her 6 friends but the guest list has sort of blown out. It will probably be all the girls in her class, plus those from dancing, friends from daycare etc etc etc.
We have an outdoor area out the back as well as a deck on the front. I'd prefer to limit it to one of these areas as I don't want 20 kids running through the house. Eeek!!!
I don't know how to entertain them though. I was thinking of a craft table but I'm not sure what else.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated?
Or would it be more fun with fewer children??

honestly i'd go fewer children.. sometimes siblings come along too, so 20 can turn to 30.

We've done a 'High tea' for a couple of parties. We had a table set up with beads to make bracelets etc, also played pass the parcel, musical statues and limbo. I think at five we also did duck duck goose. You could also have a table set up with play dough or plasticine, little canvases to paint/texta, or those little stain glass thingy things if u have adult help, then they could put them in their lolly bag.

You can think about this fun craft recipe.
Salt dough recipe
- 1 cup of salt
- 2 cups of flour
- 3/4 to 1 cup of lukewarm water. The amount of water depends on relative humidity. Mix the salt and flour together in a salad bowl, using a wooden spatula. Then add the water until a large ball has formed. Knead at length on a lightly floured work surface (somewhere smooth and easy to clean). The quality of dough you finish with will depend on the time spent on kneading. Ready to bake models
If the dough is sticky (too much water), add a mix in the right proportions of flour and salt.
Recipe variations :
Replace 2 tablespoons' measure of flour with buckwheat flour : The mixture is easier to work with (as with pancake recipes too)!
Some people like to add glycerin,(makes modeling easier) or wallpaper paste (stronger models).
