If your child is "dramatic", consider a theatre party. Take guests to see a play put on by a local children's theater or create a theater at your home with the guests performing a play or puppet show for their parents. Some children's entertainers will bring costumes, props, and scripts and coach children to perform a play.
Buy personalized theater invitations or designed like a play program (with play title, actors, etc.) or with characters from play children will see or perform. Invite parents back at end of party to watch children perform their play. More Invitation ideas and tips!
