I am going to be having a birthday party for my daughter in November which she will be 7 years old. Does anyone know of any neat games to play or treasure hunt ideas any suggestions will help.
A fun activity for children of that age is to take the foam packaging from meat (wash in soap and hot water so nice and clean) and using wax crayons, make a lovely picture. When the pictures are done they can be put into the oven for about 3 or 4 minutes - the foam shrinks up and makes a fun party favor. (10/21/2004)
In "The Complete Tightwad Gazette" which is available at most libraries, they go into detail about a pirate party for children involving a treasure hunt, cake design, and party decorations including building a pirate ship with old sheet sails, paper pirate flag, and a ship's wheel made from scrap wood. They also had several activities, take home giifts, and a budget listing how much it cost (under $10). (10/23/2004)
I found cute small treasure chests to fill with candy pieces and quarters and we are going to hide them around the yard. Also, I found a talking Pinata for only $14.99. (05/10/2005)
Fill a jar with jelly beans make sure you know how many are in there. When each child comes in ask the how many they think are in there then at the end reveal who got the nearest to the actual total. That person gets the whole jar of jelly beans. (08/22/2006)
