I don't understand the lack of interest to be honest. Those who did come had a great time. They had an entire gymnasium to themselves (at the local YMCA):
They had an assortment of balls and jump ropes to play with (and balloons!). They ran around until they were red in the face.
After an hour in the gym, we moved on to a party room. I fed them pizza, snacks, veggies and dip. We played games (well, one game - they were too keyed up to get through the second game.)
Then we had cake and cupcakes (with ice cream):
The birthday boy opened his presents then sent his friends home with goodie bags. I pity the kids who missed out on the fun.
I made my favorite chocolate cake recipe for the cake and turned to Duncan Hines Yellow Cake Mix for the cupcakes.
