Please print off and read the Instructions.
For the self-printed option, please print the additional documents as stated at the beginning of the Instructions. The number of copies required of each document is also stated.
The additional props required for the party are listed at the beginning of the Instructions and the game that the props are used in. For some games, substitutions can be made e.g. the game may need the children to identify the initial letter of an item. In which case, the item can be swapped with another one that has the same initial letter.
Follow the Instructions.
At the start of the party, sit the children in a circle and read the themed story.
If more than 1 team, allocate the children at the start trying to get a good mix in each team.
Use name labels for the children if you don't know them.
Use plenty of space. Rent a hall if you can otherwise push back furniture wherever possible or hold outside in the garden.
If outside, have picnic blankets for children to sit on and sun cover if necessary.
