My daughter is ten in 3 weeks, what to do?
By Isabelle from Seattle, WA
How about a tie-dyed party? I'll give you links to show you how to do shirts, make magnets, tie-dye cake, and psychedelic ice cream.
Invites: "Here's a party you'll be "DYE-ING" to go to!". Then give details. You can make the invite a shirt that they open for the info.
Shirts (craft stores sell them for $2 each). Here is how to do it and supplies:
This link from Familyfun.go (Disney) has all the info for the above-mentioned projects here>>
Have balloons and streamers to match your dye-color theme. Fun games can be: M&M Hunt game (a treasure hunt where baggies of M&M's are hidden and each color has a point value, but girls don't know until the end when they're all counted!)>>
Relay Race with Balloons: pairs of girls put a balloon between their backs and have to rush going sideways to the "finish line" and dump the balloon into a basket, if it drops, they start over. Have 2 teams.
Remember to provide large baggies for girls to carry home their shirts (will need to dry for 24 hrs). Instructions should be on the familyfun.go site for how to do them.
Party store also sells tie-dye plates, etc. or you can use peace sign.
Take lots of pics and girls can use their new "magnets" to hold up a pic of them from the party on their fridge when they get home!
Why don't you ask your daughter what she wants?
IF and that is a big IF this year in Seattle, the weather is nice, why not do a picnic at the Seattle Center by the fountain. Dress them up, put on Tiaras and let them just run around outside. Maybe some organized games. OR if it is in your budget, take them to the Queen Mary Tea Room. Every time I go there I see the dressed up young girls having parties. And the desserts are amazing!
Why not do a movie themed party? I recommend the movie Minor Details if your daughter is up for a mystery. There is a lot of fun you can have at this party.
You should take her/him to powerplay.
Go with a sleepover and get them to paint nails, do their hair, and dressup. You won't go wrong with that.
You could do a birthday party at home with a sleepover and a pizza or swimming for 2.20 for a child at a time of 1 hour or £112 dor a party hour.
