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?
