Birthday parties are something that is very important for kids and they mean a lot especially for girls. Making a special birthday party for girls can be challenging but can also be a great way to bring a smile to their face and to let them have fun with their friends. Here are some ideas for games and ways to make your girls birthday party a lot of fun.
Depending on your child and what her friends are like, it may be a good idea to have them all sit down and do something a little quieter and less lively rather than playing some other games. This can also be a great way to calm the kids down before something like opening up presents and having cake. Slower paced activities can also be a great way to start off the party and to keep the kids busy while they are waiting for everyone to arrive.
One of these slower activities that can be great especially for girls is making a bracelet or necklace. Making a bracelet is a quite a simple task and can be very easy as long as you have the right tools and materials to make it. Make sure that you and your guests have all of the supplies they need available to make the jewelry and provide a wide variety of beads and other items to put on the bracelet or necklace.
Another great game to play at a birthday party for kids is Button, Button, Who’s Got The Button. This game has been played by kids for generations but is always a fun way to get kids involved and comfortable with each other. It can be a great way for them to learn names and get familiar with other kids in the group especially if not everyone knows everyone. This is played by taking a large button, or similarly shaped object, and choosing who will be ‘it’. The person who is ‘it’ gets to give the button secretly to someone else and everyone has to pretend like they are the one that got the button without moving their hands or talking. The child who guesses who actually has the button gets to give it next and so on.
Another great activity for a girl’s birthday party can be making paper dolls that look like someone from the party. You can either have the girls send a picture of themselves before the party or take a picture of them in a swimsuit or leotard and then print the pictures for them to put the ‘clothes’ they make on. Have the girls make different fashions and clothes that they like to put on the doll of themselves and they will have a great time designing and making their clothes. Another thing that’s great about this activity is that they will have something to bring home after the party to show their parents and friends.
Slumber parties are also a great way for girls to have fun and you can make the whole birthday party theme all about the slumber party and everything that goes along with it. Of course they won’t be sleeping much, so it’s a good idea to have the party on the weekend if possible even though it may not actually fall on the child’s actual birthday. Have her friends bring their pajamas and sleeping bags so that they can have a great time sitting around talking to each other and sleeping in the next day. A fun twist on the slumber party is to have it outside if your child has a summer birthday and if you are comfortable having your kids sleep outside in tents. Be creative with the things that you do for their party.
