One of the activities we are doing is a pinata. The girls and I made it using a balloon and then putting strips of newspaper dipped in flour and water (we used this recipe) and layering them over the balloon. We did a couple a layers letting it dry in between (If you plan on doing this start a couple weeks in advance so you have plenty of time for it to dry. FYI putting a balloon pinata into a warm oven to speed up the drying process is not a great idea, not that I would know;) ). I took Star to the dollar store and let her have $5 to spend on stuff to put in the pinata. We placed her purchases in the pinata, taped it closed, and then the girls painted it.

Oh, and instead of a cake we are having cupcakes and I will get the girls to decorate them. I will also pick up a couple of movies for them to watch before bed. With only a couple of girls coming over I think (hope?) it will be pretty relaxed.
How do you like to celebrate birthdays? family only? themed party's? small and simple? large and elaborate?
