Girls will be girls and when it comes to planning a birthday party, many girls want a glamour-style party. Playing dress-up, making crafts and putting on make-up are sure to keep the little glamour-party girls busy. Use these glamour-party ideas to make a big hit at your little girl's next party.
Get a long sheet of red paper (use carpet if you have it) and line the sidewalk where the guests will be entering the party. Tell the party guests to dress in their most fancy dress or outfit. As the girls show up, let them walk the "red carpet." Have a few adults line the carpet to take pictures like the paparazzi. Even if it's daytime, set cameras to flash when pictures are taken. This adds to the red-carpet feel, and, as a bonus, eliminates blurring in moving shots by shortening exposure time.
Set up stations for your party girls to get pretty. Have an adult present at each station to help the girls. Set up one station for nails, one for hair and one for make-up. Each girl will get to visit each station and get a deluxe beauty treatment.
Glamour-Girl Relay Race
Go outside and divide the girls in teams of two. You will need two adults, each with a digital camera, to stand approximately 30 feet away from the groups of girls. Make sure to have the equipment to be able to print the pictures such as a camera cord, memory card, printer and photo paper. Make a "runway" for the girls to run to the adults on. Let the girls dress up in fancy dresses and accessories. On "go," one girl from each team will race down the runway and get her picture taken. After the adult says she is done, she should run back and tag the next girl in line to go. The first team to get all their pictures taken wins the race.
Now that the girls have a picture of themselves, let them decorate a picture frame to take home. You can purchase cheap, foam frames at any craft store. Then buy markers, glitter and foam stickers for the girls to decorate the frames with. Place the pictures in the frames. The custom-framed glamour shots will be one-of-a-kind party favours.
Allow the girls to make their own body glitter. Buy small cosmetic cases at any craft supply store. Fill each container 1/2 to 3/4 full with aloe vera gel (clear gel works best). Buy different colours of glitter at the craft store and allow the girls to mix the glitter in the gel with a wooden craft stick. Add a small amount of glitter at a time until the gel has the amount of glitter each girl would like. Buy small labels, and let the girls decorate and create their own labels for their glitter. Let the girls take this home as another party favour.
