Glam Emoji Party Activities
Sometimes you can drop a group of 10 year olds in a room, feed them, and they’ll make their own fun. Sometimes you want a guarantee on the fun part and need to come up with some party activities that keep the party moving!
As our guests arrived, we pointed them to the living room table to make a few emoji bracelets. I found a few bracelet making kits at the store that had all kinds of different beads in them and added a few emoji beads I purchased separately to make them party-themed.
They all went back a few times through the party to this activity!
No pictures of this one, but I’ll describe what it looked like. A wild streak of 10-year old girls with squealing and screaming as they dashed around the yard and house. If you make up a scavenger hunt, word to the wise. These kids are smarter than you and you can give them really hard clues. Else your 20-minute activity will take 2 like mine did! You can lead them to a treasure box at the end or have them pick up treats along the way. Here’s a few things that I included as prizes for our hunt:
- Inflatable Emoji Beach Balls (buy them here)
- Emoji pencil, eraser and sticker sets (buy them here)
- Mini nail polish bottles (buy them here)
- Small packaged candy
- Emoji bracelets (buy them here)
Walgreen’s also has great small items to include on a hunt!
Glamour Girl Photo Booth
Tweens definitely have that inner diva that is screaming to come out. No better place to do this than in a photo booth! With a few store-bought props, the girls went crazy! Made for some good party fun, and a whole bunch of memorable pictures.
If your party crosses over into the night time where you’ll get some good dark rooms, I highly recommend this particular activity. It burns off all the cake and sugar and is a crazy amount of fun. We do this about once a week at our house, birthday or no birthday!
Crack open a few glow sticks (the short kind), turn off the lights, and turn up the dance music. I’ve been know to join the kids and bust a move. Because it was Maddie’s birthday, we sprung for a new party toy and hooked up a laser light show to go with the dance party. The one we bought was super tiny and pulsed to the music–the kids take it out and turn it on and dance whenever they can now that we have it.
The End of the Emoji Party
After a few hours of really great fun we had to pack up our guests and send them home with our thanks.
One thing that I’ve started to do at parties is make up party bags with the kids’ names on them that sit to the side during the party. We tend to do a lot of crafts, win prizes, get treats and things like that, so having a place the kids can stash all those little pieces and keep track of them has worked wonders. All the little prizes and treats the girls picked up on the scavenger hunt went in the bags and were the take-home party favors.
The non-custom printable set has a set of labels in it just like these ready for you to fill in! Click here to purchase the custom version.
As for a our birthday girl, she gathered up all those cards and tucked them into a special drawer in her room where she keeps her treasures. I may or may not have seen her re-reading her birthday cards and remembering her awesome day a few times since her party!
