  2. Entry: A great doll tip sleepover:
    cut apples and other fruits into stars cookie cuters for ag symbol and have different bowls, of caramel melted chocolate and toppings for festive candy apples!
    get some scrapbooking paper and circle templates have guests trace it. Take a oval shape of aluiminum foil for potatoes (even though it hate them and fries) foaam shaoe for crab and be CREATIVE!
    During lunchtime pink shotglasses work as doll cups.
    Doll bingo is avaliable online.
    whip up a few plain tees or purchase some and have guests decorate with ironables, markers and such.
    Take shotglasses or hairspray caps and fill with white liquid glue. Mix with marker and add cotton on top with or without glitter glue. Cut a q- tip for a straw.

  3. I like the duck tape purses and i think it could have been a bit better if they watched all the Ag movies then talked a bit about the history and read parts of the books from all the series and have historical crafts to go with them like maybe a pet rock for Julie’s time and i also sent the link to two friends

  4. I like the braclet idea. My doll Maria loves jewlery.

  5. Entry:if you’re having a party and can’t think of a theme….don’t have a theme! mix up crazy things like a pinyata at a sleepover and clown bowling.but don’t forget to include tiny versons for your dolls!

  6. Posted on my blog.

  7. Idea: You can cut 2 inchesabove the top of a water bottle and fill it with colorful poms-poms, Then pour brown paint over it as ‘hot fudge’, and add a small red pom-pom for a cherry! and you have made A small Ice cream Sundae for your doll~You can buy small spoons at a dollar store.

  8. Just emailed 4 friends!

  9. Hi,
    I am speaking on my daughter’s behalf because she is not old enough to enter on her own or use FB. She liked the ice cream party! She doesn’t like cake but does like ice cream. Even though these are like a cupcake she likes the thought of them being in a cone! :)
    Great ideas! Thanks for the chance to win!

  10. I just love this website kidsparties123. My daughter birthday is coming up in December and I was scrabbling for ideas. I would say my favorite idea is the invitations its so unique and I love the fruit kabob idea as well. Another activity I would add is a hair salon area where the girls can do either their dolls hair or each others hair.
