Craft Ideas for 9 y.o. DD's birthday party

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

 

Hi! (This is cross posted in arts & crafts...)

 

Help! I am here to beg and plead for craft ideas for my 9 y.p. dd's birthday party this week! She is having about 7 girls over and she wants to do crafts...I thought this was going to be so easy to put together but so far, we have not found any crafts that we are crazy about. I'd like them to be somewhat meaningful, but at the same time, I'm hoping to not spend too much money.

 

One thing she wants to do is make magnets out of those clear pebble marbles. That should be cute.

 

Other than that, I've got nothing!! HELP! I'm not really the craftiest person.

 

Thanks mammas!!!

I was intrigued by this party.   They made flower head bands and fabric bracelets, which seem pretty easy. 

I hope your dd has a great day!
