Full Answer

One idea is to have a movie or DVD party, by setting up the home to resemble a movie theater. Make fun snack trays out of cardboard boxes and guests can choose from popcorn, ice cream and boxes of candy. The party invitations can be made to look like movie tickets.

A second suggestion is a scavenger hunt. Put some thought into items to hide and create clever clues. Make one large grand prize for the kids to find plus smaller prizes scattered throughout the course.

A few other ideas include indoor camping parties, cooking parties, scrap booking parties or a party that focuses on a community service project where kids take some time to put together items for a local food pantry or create a craft for a neighborhood nursing home.
