What do you do for a 9th birthday party ?
There aren't really any rules. At 9, they dream about a disco, a pyjama party, a bowling party, a laser game party or a more traditional party with a theme like before, when they were 8. If you go for a pyjama party, the best thing is to make a tent where the children can sleep. It can be quite easy, just a tube, a big sheet and two bits of string. It's quite simple but you will need to gather things together. If you skip the tent, make sure you have balloons or garlands, burgers or pizza, nail varnish, DVDs, pyjama party games, music to make choreography and breakfast for when they wake up !
Can you leave the children alone during a 9th birthday party ?
We would go for a dubious answer, saying that if you're having a pyjama party, YES (during quiet time = watching films), if you're having a birthday party with traditional entertainment NO ! You need to entertain the party like you did when they were 8 years old !
