Thank you so much, so many great suggestions and now I can see it won't be much of a problem at all.

Might look at taco dinner and GF pancake breakfast and to be on the ultra safe side will buy a few new kitchen utensils + fry pan to ensure no cross contamination (much cheaper than eating out too!).

no need to buy new utensils, etc.
Just wash and rinse and well and they will be fine. The only thing i would say is not to use a wooden spoon or wooden breadboard as they do hold crumbs of food.

As the parent of a coeliac child - thank you for putting in so much effort. I definitely recommend all GF food to minimise contamination and fresh butter, other spreads etc.

Just be careful with lollies, chocolates, ice cream, and cocoa in baked goods - many of these are not gluten free.

Gluten free junk for the party and lolly bags includes:
mini Twirls treat size and little Cadbury Freddo frogs are ok (but NOT large blocks of Cadbury choc), big Twirls and Flakes are ok too.
redskin lollies.
chuppa chups.
Natural confectionary company the wrapped lollies only.

If you check labels, anything with wheat, barley, oats or rye contains gluten, except if the only wheat is in the glucose syrup that's ok because glucose syrup is so processed the gluten protein is destroyed.

Most popcorn and chips (e.g. Smiths) are OK.

Ask one of the coeliac girls'  mums if you can borrow her GFree toaster if you're feeding the girls toast. Keep butter knives seperate (normal versus gluten free toast).  Vegemite has gluten.

Easy GF dinner is GF sausages (most decent butchers' sausages but some also found in supermarkets) and eggs/salad/sausage sandwiches.

Be careful with yoghurts, some are thickened with wheat.  Gippsland youghut is gluten free.

Sorry my 9 y old just read my above posts and says the Freddo milk choc frogs are not ok.  My daughter is very insistent I correct this!  Check the labels.

Also if u do sushi, the teriayki chicken isn't GF and nor is normal soy sauce.

If you did spag bol lots of the jars of tomato based pasta sauces contain wheat.

I think it is just the Freddo Faces that are ok not the frogs but I’d personally want to recheck the labels as it’s been a while since I looked.

Loads of GF options. Woolies have a good selection of GF cereal. GF bread is generally sh*t, but toasted it's OK. Woolies also do GF pizzas as well as GF soft tacos/fajita kits. Just get mince loads of veggies, make some guacamole, and they also sell GF tortilla chips for dipping.

Just on this. Don’t put GF bread in your normal toaster. It will no longer be GF.

On the sushi, if you get a place that has the soy sauce fish with the purple lids, that is GF sauce. Red lid is not.
