Hi there, Any birthday ideas for my soon to be 6 year daughter? She is an April Fools birthday girl. She loves Hannah Montanna and all the Disney channel characters like most girls her age. Last year we had about 10 kids at our home for a party and I just think I would like to do something different this year. I appreciate your suggestions. L. B

Both my Daughters, 9 and 7 had their birthday party at Studio Expo in Gates. It was awesome! They all had updo's, makeup, and nails done. It included treat bags, pizza and soda. We paid $20 for each kid, but well worth it. Good Luck!

Hi L.
Try Libby Lu. Hopefully you have one near you. This was a big hit with my daughter. They have a Hannah Montanna package. Look for it on line. It is a store for girly girls and they sell party packages where they do their hair and nails and makeup and they get to make perfumes and lip glosses etc...totally girly!!! They dress up and dance with their party host and have a blast.

For my daughter's 6 yr old party she wanted a fashion show. I bought each girl a cotton t-shirt and skort from target. Then I got fabric markers and some iron on gems. We had one parent in charge of ironing. We then rolled out a red plastic tablecloth runner as a "red carpet" and they did a fashion show at pick up in front of the parents. I went a little overboard and also had: sunglasses, necklaces, rings and flip flops they decorated. One of the cutest parties ever!

Hi L.,

My daughter is only 9 months old, but I happened to come across an article in the NY Times that had some REALLY fantastic party ideas, like manicure parties at cute nail salons. The one that is mentioned in the article is the one I go to in the city and I can say that they are wonderful with kids. They even have products that are safer for the little ones. I can't wait for my own little one to be able to try it. Here is a link to the article:

One of my favorite birthday parties for my daughters had a "tea party" theme. I got out the good dishes and served hot chocolate "tea" and fancy type foods (small sandwiches cut in fancy shapes). The invitation invited the girls to come in their best dress up clothes, but no hats. Then we decorated big picture hats with feathers, tulle, and ribbons. I took a picture of each girl with her outfit + hat and some group shots. Those pictures were used in the thank you notes. Some of those pictures ended up in their senior year book. Having plenty of activites and a grown up atmosphere really helped with behavior issues. The girls are all through college now and still remember the party.

Hi L.,

I am not sure if you have already booked something but I just did my daughter's party at Plasterkraze. IT WAS AWESOME!!! The price includes: pizza, drinks, cupcakes or ice cream the item they paint and LOTS of danicing. They even have a disco ball and limbo stick. They were great! I think it was $15.45 a head but with the food and no goody bags needed you are actually saving money. They also have the disney princesses, spider man and ALL kinds of things for them to paint. I had kids from 2.5yrs to 12 yrs and they all had a great time. They are in Stonybrook. I am not sure if you are anywhere near there. But good luck!!!

Hi L.,

I own Celebrating, a children's party place in Smithtown. The girls first come into a room which is set up like a cafe for children for a tea party. They sit at child-sized tables and chairs and we have real china on the tables. After they eat and drink we take them into the next room and do their nails and make up and they play dress up with our accessories. There are beads out which they can use to make jewelry to take home. After that we give them cupcakes, sing "Happy Birthday" and then dance at the end. It's a 2-hour party, and we have a room for adults who stay and include refreshments for them. If you are interested, please call ###-###-####.

There is a place called giggles in Rockaway across from the bowling alley, it's pretty inexpensive. Also if you are having the kids at your house and it is warm out--try to do a craft, I had 5 kids last year for my sons 7th birthday and he is also an April child, so we painted birdhouses for spring, they all took them home with them and their parents said that they had the best time because they could relax and watch their kids be creative. Good Luck!

I am a mother of a 9 year old daughter and a 2 year old son. I have had great experiences with just about every birthday party we have thrown for my daughter. When she was 6 we threw her a party at the bowling alley. At the time she was a HUGE Scooby Doo fan and we just had it themed up on the alley and in the party room. She loved it. This year she is also into the Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus thing. She has asked to do a movie with the girls and a little kareoke. For us parents it might be a little loud, but it will make her and the other girls happy. Good luck in whatever it is that you do.

I must tell you... We had a friend with a little boy whose birthday was on April Fools day and we filled his pinata FULL with small cuts of mixed veggies. It was the most hillarious thing I have ever seen in the world - a bunch of kiddos scrambling for candy and only to find veggies. I know others who have done the same - only with flour... A bit messy but still funny... Hope this idea will add to the laughs!

Hi!
I have two girls - just turned 6 and 8 and this worked well for us. Rented a town hall (very inexpensive) and then we had 'stations' - we did hair beading and nails with decals and tattoos. We had the usual High School Musical music on and I bought hula hoops and silly string (that was for the end! :). We had a magic show (luckily my brother helped with that) and of course pizza/cake/chips. Then a pinata.

My girlfriends totally helped out with the stations. It was a perfect party for this age and since it was in a rented room - the parents all got to stay and be comfortable and I didn't have to pay that exhorbitant per person charge that they charge for 1 and 1/2 hour parties at the 'party places'.

Have fun!!!!

How about a pretend sleepover party? Have everyone come in pj's and bring a stuffed animal. My daughter went to one and loved it! The mom bought plain white pillow cases and fabric paint, and the girls decorated their pillowcases first thing as a craft project, watch a Hanna Montana video, karaoke, pillow fights, how about a make-your-own ice cream sundae bar instead of traditional cake? By the time the party was over the pillowcases were dry. You could also decorate picture frames, and then use a digital camera to take a picture of the birthday girl with each friend. Print out the pic's, and the girls have a great party favor without all the sugar and cheap plastic stuff you usually get.

birthdaypartyideas.com is a great site for ideas. Can't tell if you are looking for in the house or out of the house parties - but here's an in-home one that was fun and easy.

When my daughter was 5 we did an "around the world" party for 5 girls. We had 5 activities that we loosely based on different countries (made pita pizzas in Italy, kangaroo races in Australia, decorated the cake in France, pin the tail on teh dragon in China). Instead of goody bags, they got a trinket in each country and a sticker of the flag from that country. (We are into geography in this house.) They got plastic "suitcases" to collect their loot. Took about 2 hours and it was a nice blend of planned activities and free time to just goof off.

You could also have a "rock star" party at your home where the girls dress up like rock stars. You could probably borrow a Karaoke machine from a friend if you don't have one yourself and then have one of the parents "DJ" a dance party, too.
Beaver Lake does great parties for all seasons, quite reasonably priced, I think.

Does she like animals? If so making a donation and having a representative from a local shelter or rescue group come to the party would be both fun and educational plus teach the young children of today that life is not all about them. Your theme could be puppies, kittens and guests could bring in needed items for a rescue or shelter group. Just a thought!! You could even send a party picture to the local paper and share the generosity that was extended to those who need it the most, animals.

Hi
I used to do birthday parties for a living...Since she is an April birthday, you can consider something outside where the kids can run ad go wild without trashing your house. A "Hannah Montana" hunt might be fun..maybe some inexpensive trinket that you can hide around the yard instead of eggs. An obstacle course is really fun, or balloon volley ball is always a super big hit. You can get a cheap badminton net (around ten dollars) and blow up a bunch of balloons. Karaoke is also a big hit for girls that age and I found an inexpensive machine that could be your gift to your daughter for around 35 dollars at Toys R Us, They can sing Hannah Montana songs. Throw in some old glittery thrift shop dresses and they can make it a show. A craft project is always fun and pretty inexpensive. Decorating a frame is great and you can take polaroids of the girls and put them in the frame for a party favor..I could go on and on, but its a start!

• Use pink ribbon and a soft pillow to transform a seat at the party table into a throne for the birthday girl.

THINGS TO MAKE

Make Cinderella type invitations
This sparkly ball shoe, with all the party info printed on the lacy slip-in sock, really fits the bill for announcing a royal birthday celebration. For a template, cut a cardboard high-heel shape (about 3 1/2 inches high and 6 inches long with a wide ankle opening).

For each invitation, fold a 7-inch square of white paper in half so that the crease is at the bottom. Set the template atop it so that the shoe bottom is lined up on the crease and trace around it. Cut out the tracing and use a glue stick to join all of the edges except for the ankle opening. Apply glue to the surface of each shoe and sprinkle on glitter.

With scrap paper, lightly blot the glitter to secure it. From pink card stock, cut out an L-shaped crew sock (about 4 1/2 inches wide by 5 inches tall) to fit inside the shoe. Trace around it to create a sock for each invitation.

Have the kids decorate their own party tiaras.

Instead of pin the tail on the donkey do kiss the frog

What you need:
Green poster board
Red or pink poster board
White paper
Glue
Scissors
Felt-tip pen

To set up the game, draw a big frog on green poster board. It's easier than you think: just make a big oval head with eyes at the top and an hourglass-shaped body with pointy webbed feet at the bottom.

Cut out the frog shape. Then cut out 2 large, white paper eyeballs and glue them in place. Draw on pupils, a mouth, and nostrils.

From red or pink poster board, cut out a pair of lips for each princess and apply a small ball of poster tack (sold at most office supply stores) to the back.

During the game, have each child shut her eyes tight, then point her in the right direction to try to pin her smooch on Mr. Frog. Continue taking turns until everyone succeeds.

Or something of this nature. Make a Disney princesses cake or add your own flair and make a crown cake or something to that effect.

I would suggest crafts! They have Disney Princess pillowcases to color, they just need moms help to iron to "set" the finished product. Then each kid has something to take home as well. Then of course there are beads, you can get some clear elastic and a mix of beads and let the kids make their own creations. Put each bead in a small tupperware that they can pick out from so there is less mess.

I work in a craft store so if you need any pricing for supplies I can give you an idea.
