Hit of the Party is a 385-page softcover book with 12 party ideas for kids. Each chapter has menus, recipes, cake ideas, favors, decorations, costumes, crafts, and games. 'What you need' and 'What you do' lists are included, along with instructions and diagrams.

What People are saying about this

Jeane Voltz
This book has everything you'd want to know about how to throw a children's party, and has projects worked out to the tiniest detail, including how-to-drawings. This is not just for parties. The play-crafts will come in handy for Cub Scout dens, Brownie packs, rainy day entertainment and a host of occasions when the complaint is, 'What can we do now?' (Jeane Voltz, former food editor of Woman's Day)
Beth A. Lawry
This book is still one of the best resources on party giving that I've seen. Hit of the Party is a well-organized and comprehensive party planner for children ages 1-10. I particularly liked the outline format. Headings are clear and let you skim through to find the sections you want. The introduction is well thought out and includes extremely helpful tips. Individual chapters include complete plans for 12 theme parties ranging from pirates to fairy tales, safaris to space. Four appendices in the back compile recipes, cake tips, crafts and games. Vangsgard also gets high marks for including photocopy-able lists and artwork, age ranges for activities and crafts and preparation times.
