Happy Birthday, Princess Priscilla!
I’ve mentioned before that all three of my kids have winter Birthdays (all in November and December!). So while I share Sawyer’s LEGO Party and J.C.’s Happy First Birthday Party already, I waited a bit to share Priscilla’s Happy Birthday Princess Party. (I get to missing the Birthday fun through the Summer months…) Here’s what we did to make her Princess Party extra special…
A Pastel Snack and Candy Bar Fit for Our Princess
What “Happy Birthday Princess Party” would be complete without some sweet treats in pinks and pastels? I displayed all of the fun party food (pink and white iced animal crackers, popcorn, colorful Twizzlers, Hershey’s Kisses…) in clear containers along a table and let the kids serve themselves with serving spoons and tongs. They had fun and felt like real royalty picking whatever treats they wanted!
Simple Kids Crafts Perfect for Our Happy Birthday Princess Party
I kept all of the kids busy while everyone arrived with a Fairy Tale Scene Sticker Set. Even though it was really simple, I was surprised by how much they loved making their own Fairy Tale scene. Then once they all arrived, I handed each child their own pre-cut paper crown to decorate with sparkly foam star stickers. We also had lots of feather boas, princess wands, and kids beaded necklaces for the kids (boys and girls alike!) to play dress up with. While they worked and played, I pulled each child out one at a time to paint their face or arm butterflies, stars, or fun and colorful marks.
Our Homemade Pin the Crown on Princess Priscilla Part Game
The hit of the Happy Birthday Princess Party was the homemade Pin the Crown on Priscilla Party Game. A week before the party, Priscilla dressed up like a Princess and I took a photo of her. I used the “tile mode” for my printer to print it on 4 sheets of paper and glue them down into one large poster onto a piece of foam board. (You could also send the file to your local print shop to have printed poster size.) Then I printed a princess tiara image (which I found on Picmonkey.com) onto cardstock and cut it out to use for the crown. I put a little sticky tack removable adhesive on the back of the crown, slapped a blindfold on each kid (one at a time of course!) and let them pin the crown on Priscilla. This resulted in lots and lots of giggling and fun!
Fun Princess Books for Our Happy Birthday Princess Party
Finally while the kids were enjoying their treats and cupcakes, I read them some fun princess themed books that I had gotten from the library. Their favorite princess book was definitely You Can’t Eat a Princess! But here’s some more…
