Re: Open gifts at birthday party? Agenda help!
Here traditionally we open gifts during the party.
What I do is sit the kids in a big circle with their gift. Birthday child spins a bottle and who-ever it is pointed at hands off their gift. IF we are pressed for time OR have a large number of kids where some might get bored ... then the one who handed off their gift gets handed their cake to eat so they have something to do while they wait.
