    In advance, have your kids make personality plates - cut out pictures from magazines that represent themselves, glue to plates. Have parents try to guess which one is their child's plate.

    Play simple games, either as a group or each child with his or her parents. If some children won't have parents there, play games by tables.

    To make it really simple, bring out the art supplies and have everyone create a picture of Parents' Day. Make a bulletin board available to them and have them staple their own artwork to it. The kids will love telling their parents where to put the work.
