All our weekends are booked up, from now until the middle of the school holidays.
DS' 5th birthday is in the last week of term. I am thinking about organising a party for his new school friends -- but not sure whether to do it after school on his actual bday, or during the day in the first week of holidays.
Those that have school age kids, which would you prefer - after school or during holidays?

5th birthday party

I'd prefer during holidays. Assuming you're talking about prep/foundation/kinder age primary school students, I expect by the last week of term they're going to be knackered. DS just started school and after school he's pretty tired. Upside also is that it's something to do in the school holidays which is a bonus.

Yes EM you do amazing parties! I haven't been on here for ages but I have seen your pics in the past!!
DS is into super heros (like so many others!). I'm thinking about just doing a morning/afternoon tea at a park to keep costs down.... and asking my brother if he will dress up as a super hero and come play with the kids, if I hire the costume!

Great idea! I did superheroes for DS 4th and minion superheroes for his 5th so have heaps of food ideas if you need them plus kids love dressing up - If you were in Sydney DH has a hulk costume he wore to the parties you could have used!

I would say after school on a friday. I am guessing some families may be go away for holidays.
I think your brother dressing up as a superhero is a great idea. Ds went to a bday party and was so excited when spiderman "the real one" showed up!
They played tug of war and other gamed and had heaps of fun.
