We went to a Barbie Island Princess birthday party today – it was so cute! I’ve never ordered any set for a birthday party and my neighbor found a pin the crown on the princess game, well it was a stick the crown since it used stickers. They also had a couple of craft kits to make necklaces and bracelets, everyone had a lot of fun with that.
The little girl loves the Disney Princesses so we found a purse and lip gloss pack for her. I figure all little girls that age (the same as Alice) like makeup and sure enough we were right on the money. All the kids had a good time. And since it was so girly, Chris took Jake and had a Daddy/Son day – they played miniature golf and ran to the grocery store to buy some treats.
Alice isn’t into Barbie yet, not really anyway. She likes the Groovy Girls (my personal favorite!) and plays dress up, plays with blocks and cars with Jake and isn’t really attached to any one thing. I hope that continues, I don’t know how to handle an obsession it seems some kids have with Barbie or other dolls.
Oh and Alice drew a picture on the top part of the card for the little girl, when she opened the card she said “Oh wow Alice, I didn’t know you could draw so good!” Little kids are so funny.
