party invite for children

Hi
If anyone has a few minutes I would love it if someone could help me with a few phrases for a party invite.

I had held on to a few the kids had received to crib off but have accidentally thrown them away aarrgghh

so I want to say

Abbie is 7
Party Mittwoch 20 April after school until 1500
my address. children to walk together
(after party those children who cannot walk home my mum will bring home by car)
please bring a painting apron
Hope you can come - please reply to handy XXXXXXX

thanks so much
some of the kids go home to a neighbouring village by school bus hence the note about taking home by car - we have alot of farm kids and i don't expect the parents can abandon work to collect kids from a party.

Caz

Hi caz

here the translation - hope this is going to help :-)

Abbie wird 7
Party Mittwoch 20 April nach Schulende bis 1500
my address. Die Kinder werden aus der Schule zu uns zusammenlaufen. (Diejenigen Kinder, die nach der Party nicht selber nach Hause laufen können, werden durch uns im Auto nach Hause gebracht.)
Bitte geben Sie ihrem Kind ein Malschürze mit.
Ich hoffe, dass Sie/Ihr Kind kommen können/kann - ich bitte Sie um kurze Bestätigung auf Natelnummer XXXXXXX

Just keep flexible about the numbers. In my experience, sometimes they say "yes" and never show up... sad for the birthday kid...

Re: party invite for children

Thank for the quick answers.
we have had a few Swiss parties and they have been a great success - I keep it very small and craft heavy and the kids seem very content with my crappy German and strange food.

My daughter will be checking with her classmates about attendance so we don't get any surprises lol.

I do have a back up plan though

Caz x

Re: party invite for children

I would actually address the invitation to the children, not the parents. Therefore I would suggest:
“Abbie wird 7.
Die Party findet am Mittwoch 20. April nach Schulende bis 15.00 Uhr bei Abbie zu Hause statt. Wir Kinder werden nach der Schule zusammen zu Abbie laufen. Nach der Party werden diejenigen Kinder, welche nicht selbst nach Hause laufen können, mit dem Auto nach Hause gebracht.
Bitte bring eine Malschürze mit.
Ich hoffe, dass du kommen kannst und bitte dich, dich unter folgender Natelnummer anzumelden."
