Birthday party

We are planning my niece's 9th birthday party. She has invited about 35 kids, but we know all of them are not coming. My brother is a single parent who only works part time. Is it okay NOT to have party favors or do kids expect them these days? I was thinking of a pinata instead where the kids

    Default Birthday party

    We are planning my niece's 9th birthday party. She has invited about
    35 kids, but we know all of them are not coming. My brother is a
    single parent who only works part time. Is it okay NOT to have party
    favors or do kids expect them these days? I was thinking of a pinata

    instead where the kids can do their own party bag.

    I myself would not worry about what is proper or 'ok'
    to do. Just giving her a party with lots of friends
    is wonderful! I am not sure I remember giving my girls
    a party inwhich I sent home any favors.

    Goody bags are an "expected thing" which in MHO are over rated and a waste
    of your good money. My kids know we never have them at their parties. We
    always make some sort of craft to take home instead and no one has ever
    complained. You can find great crafts CHEAP (sold by the dozen) at Oriental
    Trading Company, if time permits sign up for their newsletter as they often
    send "free shipping w/ $60 purchase" e-mails out. I order all my Homeschool
    / Scout and b-day stuff from them this way and save tons! I can check to
    see of I have one stashed in my folders and send it to you off list.

    BTW 35 kids WOW! That's a huge party even if only half show up! We have
    the age + 1 rule, if you are 8 you invite 9 kids...good luck with that!
