What do I do for a birthday party? I have no idea what to do for a 10 year old girl's birthday party.

What about a slumber party? Rent a couple movies, have nail polish and other make-up on hand. You could buy small scrapbooks and let the girls take pics of them doing each others nails, etc. Get the photos developed by morning and the girls can scrapbook before going home. You can buy a box of donuts and some hot cocoa for breakfast. (03/02/2010)
I threw my daughter a birthday party that was a hit. It was called the backwards birthday party. The invitations were written mirror image so that the guest had to hold it up to a mirror to read. Then the guests were required to wear their clothes backwards or inside out to the party. Every thing at the party was done out of order. First we had cake and ice cream, then opened gifts. Last of all, we played games like cotton ball relay, only walking backwards.
Another party I threw was in a color theme. Same idea as above where everyone had to wear that particular color, which for our party was pink. Then all the food was pink. You can go with any theme you want. Think of your 10 year old's favorite pastime or hobby. Then turn that into a party, like horseback riding, arts and crafts, ice skating, swimming. You get the idea. Hope this helps (03/02/2010)
If you want a memorable one, find a local feeding hungry children set up and take the kids there to work a couple hours, then to McDs or some place for lunch. The meals you are making will go to Haiti and now with Chile in devastation, there as well.
Been there, done that. This has been suggested many times over the last months to do with your children/birthday parties. Meaningful, sharing and giving, not greedy. A life lesson. (03/02/2010)
