Older kids love to attend parties. Why not get a group of kids to volunteer their time as "party help."  Depending on their age, the kids can do anything from help with preparations, serve at a party, or help with clean up. They can be used to help at a special family dinner or that grand annual party. Who knows - this might hired to help again. Have many kids that like the idea, no problem; Pearl Bids supports multiple winners on the same bidsheet with no additional entries.
