Bounced flash... Iso 200 - 400, f5.6 or smaller... do remember to shoot more wide angles and some of the close-ups of the fun... ;)

adjust your white balance to suit the indoor lightning.
have a mid-zoom ready so that u can zoom in on the kids at a distance

Yup - you should defnitely tell us your equipment. You can shoot without much flash etc if you have a 35mm or 50mm f/1.8 or 1.4 prime, or even an 85mm, although 85mm may be a bit too long on a non full frame body.

In indoors, not that easy. Esp with active kids. Even if you bumped up the ISO to 800, the shutter speed may not be good enough.

print on 4R, ISO 800 is fine.
use ceiling bounce, bounce card, omnibounce are fine,
1/30~1/60, f5.6~f8.

just some party pictures, everyone want sharp and clear photos, so don't go too fancy try low shutter speed, available light shots if you are not good at it.
