How low can you go? Your little divas will love this style-studded take on a party game favorite! Grab a boa, throw on the latest pop hits and play a game of limbo like a true glamour girl.
Nail Polish Piñata
Piñatas are always a hit at birthday parties. Give your divas a treat with the Nail Polish piñata, which perfectly matches your party theme! Pull-string piñatas are especially fun, because kids choose a ribbon and pull together—so everyone wins! They can also be opened the traditional way (by hitting it with a stick) – either way, remember to add the piñata fillers and let the festivities begin!
How Many Pink Pearls?
Before the party, fill one jar with candy. Pour them out; count them; then pour back into the jar again. Save the number, and at the party, invite everyone to guess how many candies are in the jar. Set out slips of paper and pens for your guests to write their names and guesses on. Ask everyone to fold the slips and put them into the second jar. The winner who guesses the closest number wins the Sixlets!
