I think you should just sit down with the kids parents first and tell them your plans then break the news to the kids.  Hopefully the parents will be on board with you.  Good luck!

I agree w/ talking to the parents. Also, the babysitter/pizza idea is a great idea, it will let the kids have their own fun.

A friend of mine had a going-away party at her house and designated one room the “KID ZONE” and had all signs up like, “no parents allowed” and “password-protected kid room” and stuff like that. They had food, a TV, video games, a computer, rented movies, etc.  The kids really did think of it as their room that they could do whatever they wanted in (they did have a 14-year-old babysitter in there to keep them sane) but we did not hear a peep from them the whole party!

Do 13-year-olds really need “attention” or get tired early?

Edit: Sorry, I just realised that you’re probably referring to all kids, not just your cousin.
