    Make yourself a list of what needs to be done and when so that you can relax-you still have plenty of time! As I recall-9 year olds are easy to please without spending too much money.

    Don't worry you will be fine (have a drink Mom):)

    From one mom to another, let's get organized. OK we have 20 kids coming over, are ya cooking or ordering food. If you cook do kids food the crap the other parents wont let them eat they will love it. If ordering keep it simple. 2nd theme of party? If its all girls, go buy some cheap make up, spa and nail polish kits and let the fun begin in a room that they cant ruin if they spill. Make sure you pick up some wipes they can use to clean themselves. If its a mixed party video games and board games card games ask your daughter she will know the simple things they like. Decorations I would do in one room and go off on that room, this is the room you want the kids to stay in. Make sure you get the numbers of parents cause there's always gonna be one that doesn't come back and get their kid on time or at all and yes I had one that had to spend the night one time. Use and abuse hubby or other kids as helpers... Hope this helps

    One of the funnest things I did with my roomie's 2 daughters was a virtual makeover, we got them scrubbed up and hair tied back, took digital photos and had some software that let them try on all these different hairstyles and makeup and shades - we laughed until we all had headaches.

    Another quick and easy thiing is to grab a couple movies (something their age group enjoys) or a scavenger hunt or some kind of puzzle/riddle game with prizes. The prizes don't need to be anything fancy - maybe an extra piece of cake or a goofy hat or something.

    Main thing is not to stress about it. Check out this: You must register/login in order to see the link. The mummy wrap game looks fun! Provided it's in someone else's house, that is. ;)

    P.s. Buy toilet paper!

    LOL I miss those days! Girls are much easier than the boys. I can remember once I had the "smart" idea to combine the two birthdays, thinking it would be easier. Boy was I wrong!!! Our local bowling ally had free bowling, you only had to pay for the shoes. The kids got to bowl 2 free games each. I had 50 kids there LMAO Thank God the kids were well behaved, the staff thought it was hysterical. I can tell you, I NEVER did that again!!!! Learned my lesson LMAOOOOOO

    Anyways, sorry for the derail...
    You've been given some really good ideas. If you haven't run low on funds, you can almost, maybe, let them make hair decorations (barrettes/headbands) buy some cheap plain headbands/barrettes, some ribbon, glitter or sequins (if you're brave :D) or stuff like that, beads and let them design their own stuff. Or plain sunglasses and let them make their own designer sunshades with beads and paint. Will keep them busy, laughing and they get to go home with something too.

    Make sure you have a camera on hand to get pictures so your daughter has lots of good memries of her birthday!

    You're going to have about 20 kids so you'll need to set up at least 4 poker tables...

    :lolup::lolup:thanks skiny, that certainly put a smile on my face this morning, though somehow I think I'll stick with the 'make up and nail polish', I got some yesterday, my 2 daughters have been running around since yesterday wearing lipstick and eyeshadow lol (not in bed though), also I have a nintendo wii that should keep some of the other children happy, everything has been got and I'm money exhausted now so there will be no fluttering at casinos this week :(

    Thanks everyone on your input :)

    hmmm but if you do skiny's idea, you might make some money back - the house always wins, after all! ;)

    Hope it turns out fun and not too exhausting for you.

    Now that I think about it, you'd probably just end up winning back a bunch of half empty bottles of nail polish and tubes of used lipstick.

    Maybe the some of the used tubes of lipstick will end up looking like famous people and she can sell them on Ebay and make some money back! LOL
