For a kid birthday party, consider hiring some outside entertainment to come in for the party. A clown or a magician can provide a very memorable party for your young guests. If hiring outside entertainment is beyond your budget or desires, consider hiring some older neighborhood children to come in and help set up and run the party and provide entertainment.
Kids who aren't quite old enough to baby-sit will enjoy earning a little money and proving how useful to you they can be. They can help pass out food, clean up spill, organize games, and hand out prizes. If you want them to stay and help clean up after the party, make that clear in advance. Send them home with a nice piece of birthday cake when they're done in addition to whatever wages you've offered. If you have any leftover toys or surprises from the goody bag, they'll likely enjoy those as well.
