Party Games for a Glamour Kitty Glamorous Birthday

You’ve got the perfect party menu, the perfect invitations, and the perfect party decoration for your celebration. Now you just need to figure out what to do with all those kids when they show up at your door for 2 hours! Carrie Pasfield, three time mom and child educator, throws legendary kid parties in the suburbs of DC.  Legendary not because the over-the-top decor or food, but because the party activities she comes up with are always so remarkable!
Carrie has leant a few tips on some party activities to go along with making a glamourous party for little girls to go along with the pink and ever-so-chic “Glamour Kitty” printables!
For this party you will be setting up three stations:
  • one for stylish shades
  • one for nails
  • and one for fashion  (custom “boas” and/or bead necklaces)
Have a table set up with dollar store sunglasses or make your own out of card stock from the sunglass template. Have a completed sample for the girls to see. Give the girls glitter, glue, markers or anything else with a little bling. Give them no more than 10 minutes to complete this project or they will be bouncing off the walls. Set the glasses aside to dry while the party continues.
  • Sunglass template
  • Cardstock
  • Tape
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Feathers
  • Glitter and gems
  • Crayons and markers


  1. Print template and cut out a pair of glasses for each guest. If you opt to make your own vs. picking up dollar store cheapies, print the template onto your cardstock, or print and trace to a piece of poster board or thin cardboard.
  2. Cut 1/2-inch wide by 8 1/2-inch long strips for the earpieces

  1. Decorate sunglasses–the more bling the better!
  2. After glasses have dried, bend the edges of two strips in a half and inch and glue to the back of the glasses
  3. Try on the glam glasses and take lots of paparazzi pictures!
Have girl-friendly nail polish set out on a table that you’ve covered with either paper or old towels. Have paper towels on hand for quick cleanups. If the girls are old enough, have them pair off and paint each others’ nails. If they are too young, you will need to apply the polish. Pick up inexpensive press on jewels and the like for a little extra glitz or if you want to skip the nail polish. Put on some background music like the lovely lady of jazz Ella Fitzgerald  – it’s classy, glamorous and unlikely to rile up your party gals.
If it’s close to Christmas, buy some glittery garland in pink if you can find it, silver if not. Cut the garland in 5 foot lengths. You can use pipe cleaners to attach paper feathers or other decorations to “spruce up” your boas. Save any scraps of the garland to tie to the girls shoelaces to look like fluffy pom poms.
If garland isn’t available, head to the craft store for some necklace-making supplies. You don’t need to spend much to have some really great necklaces. Keep in mind that what your little ladies will find glamorous usually matches best to terms like “gaudy” or “over the top”. Use yarn or buy cording. The more bling, the better!
Eat cake and have snacks. Then take the opportunity to dress up in those boas and sunglasses and fancy nails and strut the catwalk to some music that DOES get the glamour kittens all riled up. Break into a dance party where the craziest move wins and work off that sugar rush!
Thanks again, Carrie for the party ideas!!
