Plaster - 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
Set 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 visit.

Hair-Coloring Station:
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.

Hair-Styling Station:
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.

Make-Up Station:
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.
