Birthday Party Help (Not Celiac Related!)
0

6 posts in this topic

My daughter is turning 5 next month. We are planning a Fancy Nancy tea party/spa station day. We have one little boy coming. What is an easy craft he can do while the girls make paper fans? The girls will also be getting nails done, glitter in hair etc, I guess he can get gel in his hair, maybe a tattoo.

My other daughter had a hula party last year and this boy also came. I purposely bought him some boy things to wear while the girls wore leis and hula skirts but he did not want to do any of it.

I am torn between going out of my way to have boy things for him (that he probably wont use/do) and just having the party the way I/daughter want it. If he doesn't want to participate anyway what's the point?

Any thoughts are much appreciated!I hate incorporating one boy into a girly party! (is that rude to say??? lol)

Do you think he would be interested in making a jello aquarium or some cool science experiments? All you do for an aquarium is make blue jello that day and let it firm up but not totally set. Purchase gummy worms, whales or whatever for him to put into the container (clear glass or even a large plastic cup). Then he can either take it home and eat it later. Since that does not take long to do, perhaps you could make some edible sculpting clay which he could form into his own shapes.

I taught Sunday School for years (ages 2-10) and have lots of ideas if you want. Plus I have a neat book on crafts and science experiments...

Another cool idea is making a greenhouse in a bag - add seeds, etc. and tape to a window so it gets lots of light. Not instant gratification but cool nonetheless! And neat and tidy.

Toothpaste putty is fun, too - you create whatever you want and the putty hardens rock hard in 24 hours.

Or maybe even the ubiquitous crayon melt art (i.e. grating up old crayons, placing between wax paper, and ironing).

Do you have a gameboy? My daughter's little boy friend came over after school to play when she wasn't feeling well. She had him sitting staring at the dyer waiting for her blanket to be dry. I slipped him the gameboy to play while his princess was waiting for her blanket.

I would have small game type things for him to do, maybe even take home. It's hard to suggest without knowing his personality.

i totally understand that.....sumtimes kids dont like being "speical treatment" cuz of differences (food allergy, gender, age, etc.) i think the best thing 2 do is hav him do the stuf, i remember wen my bro was young he always wanted his toes painted when i got mine dun!!!! :D LOL but maybe the best thing 2 do wuld B 2 not invite him......? i understand if he is like the child of a close fam friend er sumthin, but this is a "girls" party, not a mixed sooooooooo yah.....hope this helps :P:wub:

What a neat idea! My kids would have loved it. Might even find the girls are more interested in that project than the nailpainting and hairdos.

Why can't he make a fan too? He can make one for his mom or for his sister if he thinks it's too girly or he can use the paper to make paper airplanes or just color a picture something instead. If it's meant to be a girl only party why invite him? Or did his parents insist on bringing him along with his sister or something? If that's the case I think his parents are the rude ones and I would not go out of my way to accomodate the boy. Tell the parents it's a girly party and if they MUST bring him to bring some toys he can play with on his own in another room. It sounds like he didn't want anything to do with the hula party so why force him to play with the girls if he doesn't want to?

    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.  
    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
    • Hi everyone, I am doing job in restaurant at evening 5 to 12 during working hours no time to do a dinner. I'm thinking to make a shake but don't know the gluten free vitamin or supplement brand which one is good for me and easily available in Berlin Germany to make me fit cause last one week i feel weak. I'm 28 year old. Sincerely
    • Hey there just wanted to warn anyone that has other allergies- these crackers may not be a good choice! I'm mildly sensitive to MSG- I only react if there's a giant amount like in Chinese food or Ramen noodles, etc.  I literally have a to eat TONS of a the offending food before reacting.  Anyway, I was excited to try these Trader Joes pumpkin crackers, kept hearing about them on the radio .... and they're gluten free!  (I have Hashi's).  I ate about 3/4 of the box last night. Woke up this morning with a red itchy face and nasal congestion, headache, anxiety. Hallmark symptoms for me of high MSG intake. (It does say yeast extract on the side but it's pretty far down the list). So if you're sensitive.... stay away! Apparently these particular crackers are loaded with it.
