PRINCESS PARTY missing slipper game and royal crown activity
Now that Little M is getting older, I was determined to add games to this princess party. I did a little digging and found 3 games/activities that were so much fun I had a hard time not jumping in myself.
Cinderella’s lost slipper
I don’t remember where I found the idea for this, maybe on a birthday list generated by a party site. Shame on me for not bookmarking it! I knew I wouldn’t need to save it because this game is SO simple.
My plan was to visit our local thrift store and pick out small, women, high-heel shoes. I was going to bring them home and spray paint them with a sparky silver. What luck when I found this perfect Cinderella heel!!!
what you need: high heel shoe (or kid’s dress up shoe)
While my hubby hid the slipper (in a place I already decided on), I read the kids a birthday book. Don’t worry I’ll share a whole list of birthday books on Friday’s Book Review.
I showed the kids the one slipper and told them that the other slipper was lost somewhere in the house. Um. . .the only rule was that they were not to open any closed doors. Then I sent them of on a glass slipper search! After the party died down to a few family members, my niece came to me and asked if she could find the glass slipper again. What more can you ask of a game then for it to welcome a repeat performance?
Crowns fit for a Princess (or a Prince)
I came across this project a while back and started saving toilet paper rolls. . .oh wait I always save toilet paper rolls! Lilla A has this crown activity. Look around her site while you are there, it’s very cool.
what you need: toilet paper rolls ~ tempera paint ~ hole punch ~ stickers ~ foam stickers ~ elastic
Little M painted the toilet paper rolls a week before the party.
Before the party I drew a crown type line around the middle each roll. I cut on the line (kid scissors worked best). Each roll made two colorful crowns. I set out stickers and form stickers before the party. As the kids arrived I shuttled them over to make their very own crown.
As they finished up I measured a piece of elastic to fit their head (don’t forget that the crown is in the middle of their head!) Two simple knots, just inside the crown. . .and VIOLA instant royalty.
The last game was so cool! KISS THE FROG beanbag toss!
i found you through pinterest.
Thank you Jen… glad to have you here!
Jillian, theses are such great ideas! Thanks a million for sharing! I was getting a bit desperate, as I have to arrange a bday party for my 4 year old this friday and had no idea what games to play.
I’m so glad I could help. 😉 Let me know how it goes.
BRILLIANT! So, so glad you posted this — I am using for my girl’s 5th next weekend.
