    Default McDonalds Party.

    Dd1 will be turning 4 this year during the winter months. We usually have the parties at home but this year I am looking into a mess free (for me) alternative. Because the weather is unpredictable a sausage sizzle at a park isn't really possible so I was thinking McDonalds.

    They seem to include everything except the cake, even themes like Fairy. I just want to know what people experiences have been? Were the goodie bags tacky or should I make some of my own, age appropriate games etc...

    I had my DD's 4th birthday at Macca's, because we were in the process of moving & I just wouldn't have coped with a party at home.

    The party bags are tacky, I made my own & also organised games for the kids myself. My DD was in love with Dora so I decorated the party room and took my own Dora ice-cream cake.

    I think it turned out pretty well for a Macca's party, all the kids had fun.

    Dd1 had her 5th birthday there I though it was ok I mean $9.95 per kid can't expect much, all the kids seem to have had a ball. The lolly bags we got had a balloon, notebook and texta which was ok I though after just having a happy meal and ice cream cake

    If cheap and easy is what you want then I recommend maccas parties dd2 wants one this year so I'm doing it again in September

    Edit I may buy a bag of lolly pops and a box of those mini bubbles to add one of each to the lolly bag

    I am having a HJ's party for DD this year.

    We have been to 1 or 2 and they have been pretty good. The kids dont really eat much (which is good) but play games and on the play equipment.

    We have a pupil free day, so having it then when they will have the whole place to themselves. I wouldnt consider it on a weekend though.

    We had Dd1's party at maccas last year.

    All went well. Their party bags are a bit crappy so we did our own, also brought our own cake & a pass the parcel

    Thank you all for your responses. Might buy a few extra goodies to top up the bags but $12.95 for each child for a fairy party you can't go wrong really.
