The mom invited 8 girls for a total of 10 people at the party. The party took place in the backyard and she planned an early evening party so that all the guests would be in shade and it would not be too hot, but enough light to be able to see the beads.
The mom had each guest bring their own blanket to make their jewelry on. Two of the guests at the party were sisters, so they were able to share a blanket.
We sanitized the boards ahead of the party. The birthday girl choose the bead colours and charms prior to the party and we prepared, sanitized and safely individually packaged each bracelet project. Then we distributed them to the children at the party.
We made the bracelets with the girls, then we did a colouring activity, played a game called all about the birthday girl and then the mom handed out pizza and then the cupcakes. All the girls sang happy birthday from their blanket beading stations and then enjoyed their treats.
It was such a fun party and we enjoyed every moment. We are looking forward to providing many more of these parties this summer.
