I'm having a birthday party for Lewis in a few weeks at the community centre and have hired a bouncy castle for the room too, not got loads of kids coming about 10-14 I would say. Anyways I need to cook everything at home and then take it over. Any ideas as to what I could make? Just easy ideas please? Lol Thanks ladies!

For a kids party I would stick to sandwiches, wee cakes, crisps and maybe cocktail sausages. The kdis wont care about the food with a bouncy castle about. Plus all they really want at a party is a birthday cake xx

Yeah, just basics like sarnies, little sausage rolls (big bags from the freezer are cheap), crisps, cut up cucumber, carrot & cherry tomatoes are always nice. Maybe some chicken nuggets (can be eaten cold) & even cold pizza slices. Fairy cakes are cheap to make & go down well too & some biscuits for those who don't like cake
As well as what the other ladies have mentioned I always find party ring biscuits and iced gems go down well with kids at parties, nothing chocolatey as they tend to get hot and you end up with gooey chocolate covered kids everywhere bowls of grapes or chopped up fruit are often popular but those need to be done fresh.
