Shared Party Activities
- Rosy from Houston, TX
Kids love to paint, specially on plaster! I took my kids for fathers day
to a place where they could paint on plasters that said "best dad" and
we spent $12! These things were tiny!!! So I went to Hobby Lobby and
bought them molds (you can choose any thing you like) I bought different
types of animals. Then, you need the plaster! For a big box of plaster
$4.99, each mold depending on the size $2-5.They're birthday is coming
up and so far I have made twenty of these things! This will be an
activity all of the kids will enjoy at the party. I only spent about
$15!!! And these molds only take about 30 minutes to make!!
This is a great idea for an activity at a childs birthday!
Tween Party Ideas - Cathy from Stillwater, NY
City_State: Stillwater, NY
A new twist on a movie themed birthday party. If you have at least
two camcorders (I know my kids each have one) you can break up in teams
and have the kids write, produce and film their own movies and then
watch. Birthday invitations could say something along the lines of "You
have been selected for a starring role in a brand new movie....."
After the movies are done each participant should get some kind of
prize--best screenplay (for the kid who did most of the writing) best
lead actor in a drama, best supporting, best costumes (yes I will open
the dress up box)...and on and on. And--as part of the thank
you--download copies of the movies and send them to each kid.
Spa Stations - Madison
up tables, chairs, and supplies for any or all of the stations below.
You can label and decorate the stations as desired. To make sure they
run smoothly, you will need an adult or teen helper at each station.
Partygoers can rotate between whichever stations they would like to
Use temporary hair coloring kits that can be washed out. You will want a
variety of colors for different colored hair. Have different options for
guests to choose from, such as highlights or complete coloring. You may
wish to set up this station near a sink.
Set up chairs where partygoers can have their hair styled. Offer as many
different options as you like, such as curls (with a curling iron or hot
rollers), single or double braids, pig tails, pony tails, hair
extensions, buns, etc.
Manicure & Pedicure Station:
Set up a table and chairs where the children can have their hands and
feet soaked and pumiced and their nails clipped, filed, buffed, and
painted. Have several colors of polish and nail stickers available from
which your guests can choose.
A make-up kit with mascara, lip gloss, eyeliner, blush, eye shadow, and
other cosmetics will be useful for this station. Be sure to have a
mirror on hand so your guests can check out their make-up jobs!
You can offer the children foot or hand massages with oil or lotion at
this station. If the children want head massages, make sure they visit
this station before they stop at the hair stations!
Decorate and Take
Home Cakes - Colleen from Australia
For my son's 5th birthday I made a large sponge cake & cut it into
smaller cakes. We then put each piece in a plastic takeaway container.
The table was covered in bowls of yummy treats - different colored
icings, different edible sprinkles, jelly beans, icing flowers etc. The
kids then all decorated their own cakes, popped on the lid & took them
home to show the parents. We had 13 kids ranging in ages from 18 months
to 7 years & they all had a ball.
