Hi everyone

I'd love some suggestions on an activity or two for 3 boys aged 5-8yrs who are attending DS' 3rd bday party tomorrow.  

The original idea for keeping the older kids entertained was slip n slide and water guns/squirters, but the weather is very wet (raining now and forecast for tomorrow is havy rain) so the backyard will most likely be sludge by then.  

For the littlies, there'll be water table, playdoh, coloured sand into bottles, bubbles, things like that.  We're also setting up a make-your-own ice cream sundae table.

Cheers in advance.

p.s. party time is 10-1pm.

Marshmellows and either spaghetti sticks or skewers and they can make massive buildings ect. A fave here or even make/buy air drying clay. Always a hit!
