to sit on a cloud at the rainbow table.

Piñatas are always fun, I've never seen a child turn down a
chance to take a swing for a sweet treat.
Party Food & Cake Ideas:
As the excitement is so high at children’s birthday parties,
most children under the age of 10 will eat very little, and
the waste can be disheartening. If you are entertaining a
younger crowd, schedule your party during a time when
parents will not expect that their children will eat a
meal…and serve only cake, ice cream, and a few other
munchies such as popcorn, cheese balls, or grapes.
If you decide to serve a light meal, serve food that you
would typically find at a mall food court -- pizza by the
slice, nachos, burgers and fries, or soft pretzels.
- Serve easy to prepare
- Name all the food and
beverages to match your theme.
- Display a Cake in the
center of the food table. The children will love the
close up view!
- Serve Sandwiches cut
into shapes with cookie cutters.
Place a rainbow candle's on your cake.
