  • We just did a carnival birthday party for my DD. We had 5 different carnival games with fun prizes, and carnival themed snacks of hotdogs, popcorn, caramel apples, and cotton candy. We also made sure the kids who didn't feel like playing the games were having fun.

  • My son turned 11 this year and wanted to go to the roller rink in town with some friends. Other things he wanted was to go to the Entertainment Center in town. They have mini golf,bumper cars, laser tag and all that. It doesnt have to be that expensive if she only invites a few friends. Another idea alot of moms in town have done is rent 2 lanes at a bowling alley.

  • Luckily you dont' need to do anything expensive, cake and ice cream are really all kids of any ages want lol. The bowling idea is great too

  • gosh somebody took my bowling,, LOL! does she like to "play dress up"? I am a hairstylist and have been hired to do "make up" and updo's for a party before,, it was kind of fun, then the mom had a "tea" for them,, I personally was not a girly girl at 11, but these girls thought it was awesome!
