Pampered Chef: Birthday party help needed!

    I haven't been on the site lately. Things are a little crazy around here but I knew I could always ask my CS family for advice!!! I've been online all day trying to come up with things to do for my DD's d-day. They will be 6 & 4 and the party is next weekend. (May 16th) We are doing it in the evening and a couple girls (nieces) are staying the night. We plan on getting some Hannah Montana movies/shows to watch during the "slumber party" since they have picked a Hannah Montana theme. The only thing I'm worried about is coming up with something to do. In Ohio, May weather is tricky. One year it was 90 degrees, another year it snowed like 4 days before the party! I don't think we will have any snow in the future but there is definetly a chance for some rain. My girls and their friends are very artsy type girls... any ideas?

    Decorate cupcakes or cookies! Always a hit!

    Make the PC pretzel wreaths, but don't use christmas sprinkles, use springy ones (or their favourite colours). I did this with 4 and 5 year olds at my DD's 5th birthday, and they did a great job and had fun.

    I'll try and think of some non-food crafty things too...

    I guess anything they can decorate and either paint or use glitter glues or that kind of thing... Alot of the hobby type stores (Joann, hobby lobby etc) have little un finished wooden things (animals, letters, boxes, picture frames etc) that you can paint and decorate as you like...

    Okay my first thought was paper mache, but you might hunt me down for suggesting that!

    Stickers are always fun and not messy!

    go to goodwill or similar store- purchase items you know they would never wear normally- but have them have a design contest for new Hannah montana styles- have a silly prize for a winner

    Get each birthday girl a white t-shirt and have a few permanent markers. Write on the front in large letters "(Childs name)'s 6th Birthday Party" and then have every guest sign and/or decorate each shirt. This is soo much fun and when you save them from each year you can quilt them together for a bed spread when they graduate from high school and go off to college.

    I did a Kids in the Kitchen birthday party with 10 kids...the birthday twin kids were 7 years old. I did the Crazy Caterpillars and the Double Decker Quesadillas with them. I'll attach the recipes in case you don't have the "Let's Eat Kids Cookbook". I had parents stay and help but the other things people have suggested sound more complicated than these were for me!
