I wish I would have taken pictures of the birthday horns as I made them, because it was so easy, and they came out SO CUTE! I will do my best to describe what I did. I began with a colored drinking straw that I cut to the right length. Then I took some colored paper, that I rolled to be the part that blows out. I used a glue dot to adhere it to the end of the straw. I had some silver streamer that I cut to add to the end, around the curl. I used shiny aluminum tape that I found at the hardware store (I use this all the time- I like it much better than duct tape, because it actually is silver and shiny!) I cut a strip and wrapped it around the straw. I made each doll one to match the human sized ones I bought for the girls.
As the girls showed up, the first activity was to make doll sized birthday cakes! I prepared the base, using a yellow foam kneeling pad that I cut into circles and hot glued two on top of each other for the base of the cake! The girls decorated them with puffy paints! So easy! I chose to have each girl begin with a layer of chocolate frosting (like Molly's cake!) So, when the girls arrived this was our first activity, as that brown paint needed to dry before they could add extra decorations!
Here, you can see the girls helped their dolls pick out flowers.
After the toilet paper fun, it was getting dark and time to set up an outdoor theater. I have a projector that we hooked up so play the American Girl Saige Paints the Sky movie onto the side of the house. With popcorn and a movie playing, it was a nice way to wind down from the excitement of the party!
