Welcome back to the final installment of our recent Hello Kitty slumber party.
Do you remember those pillowcases I made? We used those at the party. I bought fabric markers at Michael's with my 40% off coupon. The idea came from this site: eHow Slumber Party Ideas for Girls
The girls drew their pictures on the pillowcases, then signed their names to the pillowcases and got to take home a memento of the party and of their friendship. I had 1 extra pillowcase since one little girl was not able to come, so Pumpkin was so excited that she got to make a pillowcase as well. Of course, she had the big girls sign her pillowcase, but they didn't seem to want her to sign theirs…hmmm (not that surprising).
The pillowcases turned out really cute. In case you notice the funny dark or blurry lines, I blurred out all of the girl's names from the pillowcases. So those smudges are not really smudges.
Also, just so you know, since this party was a while ago for us now. Our pillowcases have been washed and used multiple times and the markers we used work well and we haven't had any problem with them. The pillowcases I made, also have held up well so far. Woo Hoo for that one!
We used these Fabric Markers, in case you want to use the same markers that I used. These are on Amazon and of course, I found mine locally.
We had another game we planned to play but didn't end up playing it during the official party. We did play it while waiting for one family to arrive to pick up. Our family played this game during our New Year's celebration. It was so much fun Snowflake requested that we play it during her party. Ultimately, she was having too much fun doing other things and decided not to play it that night.
The game is called Flashlight Limbo and I got the idea here at Disney Family Fun. In order to play this game you will need 2 flashlights, a dark room, and music. Make the room as dark as you can, crank up the music and let the kids limbo under your flashlight beams. The way Mr. T and I did this was to stand across the room and aim our flashlights at each other. The beam of light becomes the bar that the kids have to limbo under. If the beam of light hits them as they go under, they are out (or in our case, we gave them 3 strikes until they were out). Both times we have played this game, the kids have really enjoyed it.
I also made some little favor bags. I didn't do much in these little bags since we had already give the girls an animal from Build-A-Bear as well as the pillowcase they made. It is still fun to give a small favor bag at the end of the party. So, I used my cricut again and cut out the bags using the Once Upon a Princess Party Cartridge (Cricut Cartridge, Once Upon a Princess). I added a pen, Hello Kitty ring pop, and Hello Kitty eraser to the bag and finished it with a green ribbons (since the colors of the party were pink and green).
