Oh my daughter just had the most fun little party! I loved it because the whole party was so simple to setup and the girls had a fantastic time, really without me lifting a finger.
It all started when we got a chance to do a House Party American Girl Crafts® Party.
If you are not familiar with House Party, I recommend you take a peek at their website. They basically match up people and companies and then you throw a party with your House Party Box. Very cool, I know.
Anyway, this House Party was amazing. We invited a bunch of little girls and their moms to come and do American Girl Crafts® . Specifically, we did scrapbooking, using the Scrap & Stuff books and all sorts of extra add-ins from the American Girl Crafts® .
We setup to have girls bring their AG dolls if they wanted and did a pink girly theme. My daughter likes to be different, so she incorporated a bunch of blue. Haha. But, I let her set it all up how she wanted. That was fun. Now that she is older (and had help from her older sister), she was able to feel like she ran the party.
I’m not a control freak, btw. Maybe a little bit. This was fun though.
Because EVERYTHING we needed to do the crafts came in the Party Pack, we did not need to schedule activities. The girls came and bypassed the food…
Seriously, they bypassed the food and threw themselves into doing their books. They barely moved the entire time aside from going to get more embellishments, stickers, tapes, stamps, idea papers and such.
It was fun to see how differently each girl worked and designed. They were all so creative!
Some of the Moms stayed and we got to visit, while the girls got to show us everything they were doing. It was truly an easy and enjoyable mother and daughter time.
I don’t always write about any House Parties I do, but this is a keeper, mainly because the party would be easy to recreate without a party pack.
The American Girl Crafts® are available at many stores and you would just need to gather up supplies, like embellishments and stickers and some of the little extras like envelopes. You could get the Scrap & Stuff books and follow the same theme. The Scrap & Stuff travel size books are reasonable and are very easy to use.
