All your ideas sound wonderful except for the bouncy balls–because of the glassware and kazoos, aracas and other instruments–because you simply can’t control when the “music” will be made.  I think you have enough ideas, but if you want to splurge, you can give them Duplo or Lego blocks to play with.  Boys would certainly like that!

The children are going to have a blast!

I think you could get princess dress up stuff at your local dollar store. I also agree with no bouncy balls or musical instruments–just say DANGER written all over it.

building blocks like legos 


Boardgames–for older ones? Like CandyLand or Guess Who?

Colored pencils (instead of crayons)

I got plastic slinkies at the dollar store, and small pads of paper with crayons.  If they are too young and might color on the walls I would skip that.  Maybe small pads and stickers! Make sure that what you get is for their ages!

I agree with no bouncy balls or musical intruments. Everything else is fine.

I found some sesame street, disney and spongebob  go fish decks of cards at the dollar general. Ther were $1.00 for 2 decks of cards. My (just turned 2) grandaughter loves them just for the pictures. I bought 10 decks to share with the kids and some glow in the dark bracelets from the dollar tree.

I live near a LEGO store that sells legos by the scoop in any color you want so we’re doing LEGOs in our wedding colors.  

We’re also doing bird shaped crayons (see tutorial here: http://picnicsinthepark.blogspot.com/2009/06/bird-shaped-crayons.html )  that seem really easy and can be done in just about any shape you can think up.  

We’re making little coloring books from photos of us and photos we’ve taken in black & white and use a “stamp” action in photoshop to make it so there’s just an outline to color in.  We thought this was great since we’re both photographers.

They make travel hungry hungry hippo games (smaller versions of the originals, and the marbles can’t come out and end up in someones’ nose).  We are a couple of those for the kids table.

I would consider the markers that only show up on the certain type of paper. Just in case!

We are setting up some of the game boys and other little electronic games for them to play.

Maybe you could do a scavenger hunt?
