It's best that you arrange a sizeable work space for this as things will get messy.

Let them to fill the pots with dirt and seedlings, encouraging them to care for their plants so they will grow. These are perfect party souvenirs that children will enjoy for months to come.

It really all depends on the theme of the party. At the work area, allow the children to select their flip-flops and decorations.
