My dd will be 4 in Sept. It's early, but I would like to start getting ideas on what to do for her birthday. She really isn't into princesses and she hasn't seen any movies yet. So anyone have suggestions?

  • For my daughter we did my little pony theme when she was 4 & Strawberry shortcake when she turned 5. It's amazing how this stuff comes back, but she loves them.
    We did pin the tail on the pony games

  • My son is only three, and we did it at the place he takes gymnastics.

    Maybe an Arts & Craft party? Tell the parents to dress their kids in play clothes and have a few different stations sat up with people helping with crafts.

    Oh, or a Cupcake Party. Have the whole theme cupcakes and then give each kid an uniced cupcake and put out a few different icings and toppings and let the kids make their own cupcakes.

    Or if it's warm where you are in September, have a Messy Party. Again, tell the parents play clothes and a change of clothes. Set up outside with messy stations. A plastic pool filled with cooked pasta. Finger painting with jam. Drawing with chocolate syrup (CAUTION! This party is not for the weak at heart! LOL!)

    Good Luck!

  • Any TV shows/specific toys she likes? Hello Kitty's a cute theme. Farm animals, colors and polka dots are good themes too. Why not ask her what she wants?

  • Let her have a "sleepover" inviting one child for each year (4 for yours) and since they are still very small, have the children arrive in pjs and do cool sleepover things, and then have the parents pick them up at 10:30 or so. As they get older, they can actually sleep over!
