A good way to start out a kid birthday party is to a large see-through container or jar filled with small items or candies. Have each child guess how many items are in the jar as they arrive. They can write their guess and their name on a slip of paper and drop it into a nearby shoe box with a slit cut out of the top so the guesses remain private. At the end of the party, whoever has the closest guess gets to take home the jar as their prize! You can fill the jar or container with candy, small toys, marbles, beads, or other small items. Make sure you count the items before the party and hide the answer somewhere so you don't forget!
