    We're interested.

    Where are you?

      Maybe send out an "are you interested" type letter first to see if you get any takers.

          I'm not sure I'd put in the 1-kid disclaimer. It's a risk you take as a businessperson, but to put it in there, it'll discourage parents of single kids from wanting to use your services - and a houseful of 1-kids will net you more than two families bringing you 2 and 3 kids respectively.

          Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

              I think the idea is that if there are fewer than 2 kids registered TOTAL (that is, from ALL families involved) then there's not much point in providing the service that night. But if three families sign up, each with one kid, then it's worth it.

              Now, if thirty-five families sign up, well, that's another matter.

                exactly,

                If only one child is signed up for the entire evening out of everyone well then that's a really long night and a lot to put my own kids through but if even 2 sign up (same family or not) then It would be worth it...
                I also have a certain amount of expenses to put on the evening, and basicly if one kid signs up, I spend what is needed for the activities...I have made $20 for the whole night....not loving that idea....but if 2 sign up my costs are the same but I could actualy make some money ...does that seem reasonable?

                  Yeah, just mentioning it from a marketing standpoint. Totally understand about it not being "worth it"

                    but it would make it more reasonable for them...I think I'll do it, (if they ask)

                    I also have been thinking, some of the parents of the younger ones may not be comfortable with all night I may offer a choice of 6-midnight for $40

                    Again, your thoughts?
                    that sounds great! i know i would jump on the chance, i have so many of them though, i'd take up all your spaces!
                    please be afraid.

                      Our karate studio does these for the 4-12yo age group. Its a blast. As parents, we take turns hosting it. Its jokingly called "Mom's night out", as the karate master always stays the night and it used to be a bunch of us moms would go out together. The last year or so, we started letting the guys go out while the moms host it. They charge $25, but no crafts, just plenty of games. movies, video games (kids have tournaments) and we generally have about 40 kids, with 5-7 adults, and 4-6 teens helpers. Kids bring sleeping bags and everyone has a blast. As a parent, I always appreciated these nights to get out. I think you are on to a great idea.
                      If you see a cute yellow lab puppy with a yellow cape, WAVE! It might be us! (Or it may be someone else that lurks here!) Thank you for asking before you pet! Next trip, Dec 22-Jan 3rd.
