Personalized Tote Bags

Makeup, personalized tote bags, and other great birthday party activities!

Pin the tail on the donkey. Whisper down the lane. And who can forget piñatas? I am sure you have many fond memories of you and your friends’ many birthday parties from roller skating rinks to camping out in the backyard. Now it is time for you to make those memories for your own child and you want to make sure that they have a party that leaves their classmates talking. You want to make sure that all the little party guests are giggling, not snoring. Are party hats still cool? If you want to throw a fun and memorable party for your little one and are not sure where to start, check out some of these activities for ideas on an entertaining party.

If you have a daughter, there is nothing that a group of girly preteens would love more than to have makeovers. Now this party activity requires a lot of physical work on your part and you may need to call in some reinforcements. Trust us, finding a few willing teenagers or adults to do hair, makeup, and nails is a lot safer than letting the girls makeover themselves or each other. Get out the curling irons, lip gloss, and neon nail polish. The girls will have a bawl picking out fun colors and admiring their new look in the mirror.

Another great party activity is to have the kids make their own personalized tote bags. Personalized tote bags let the kids be creative and show off their individualism. Best of all, they get to take the personalized tote bag home with them and they can continue to use the personalized tote bag to carry things places like school. For the kids to make their own personalized tote bags, all you have to do is supply some plain canvas tote bags and then get fabric paint, sequins and glue, or anything else that you think the kids might want to use to decorate their personalized tote bag.

Another craft that kids may enjoy at a birthday party is to get string and beads to make friendship bracelets or key chains. You can even get beads with letters that the kids can spell out their names. You can get all sorts of colors of string so that the kids can choose any color combination they desire and add beads to it if they want or just use the string. There are many different ways to braid string for bracelets which some of the kids may know or you may want to learn so that you can teach the kids if they want to make a friendship bracelet or anklet at the party.

If crafts are not your thing, never underestimate the fun appeal of food. An entertaining and simple activity that you can do with a group of kids is to let them make their own soft pretzels. You can get a soft pretzel making kit or you can find a recipe for making your own dough. Then you can let the kids shape their soft pretzels into whatever shape they can think of. Pretzels do not have to look like a typical pretzel so let them be creative. They can add salt or cinnamon sugar when they’re done their pretzel design and then just pop them in the oven. They’ll be as fun to make as they are to eat.

Another food favorite for kids will always be ice cream sundaes. Just buy a tub of basic vanilla ice cream and then give the kids a variety of toppings to choose from. They will have a great time pouring drizzling chocolate sauce, squirting whipped cream and sprinkling peanuts on their own personal sundae. Send them outside to eat the ice cream sundaes to save your kitchen from stickiness and then prepare for the sugar high to follow.

Once they are all hyped up on sugar would be a great time to start any physical activities. Letting them run off their energy is a great idea, especially if you are going to be keeping the kids overnight. You can plan relay races to spark friendly competition among the party guests. Make sure to choose a variety of activities like balance and aim so as not to leave out the slower kids with purely running exercises. If it is summer, water games are always loved by children. Try playing hot potato with a water balloon. They’ll be delighted to have it pop all over them.
