i'm starting to plan my daughter's 9th birthday party. she's inviting 6 girls, ages 7-10. to save on $$ we'll be having the party at our apartment. i've been trying to think of something that won't get the girls wound up & something different. i was thinking of doing a spa party & this is what i've come up with.
facials (maybe have them help make facial masks)
make some sort of spa related craft; lip gloss, soap, etc. as part of the goodie bag
whatever "craft" they make
fruit salad or sliced fruit & dip
cheese & crackers
veggies & dip
water & juice
mini woopie pies instead of cake (my daughter likes to do different things every year for the b-day cake)
any other thoughts from you wonderful mamas?
**after thinking on it a bit more i decided that i was going to get little make-up bags or such for the goodie bags. i'm going to but a little emery board in it, a headband & if i can find them the nail toe nail separators. we'll give them to the girls when they get to the party that way they can use the items in the bags when they are at each "station". when they leave they can add their home made lip gloss in & other spa goodies they get to the bags.
