Does anyone have any unique, INEXPENSIVE birthday party ideas for a soon-to-be 9 year old girl? My daughter is very much into the hands-on or DIY stuff - make your own pizzas, make your own pottery, make your own beading projects, etc.
What about local restaurants that will let you make your own food? Or other places that aren't well known for birthday parties but still have a unique idea to offer??
(Example - when we lived in Chicago 2 years ago, Krispy Kreme had a birthday party package with donut party games, build your own pyramid donut birthday cake with whipped cream & sprinkles, frost your own donuts, goody bags for the kids and 2 dozen donuts after the party for the parents (the last thing we wanted to see after that party though!!
) It was so unique and low-key and fun for everyone....and the kids hadn't ever been to one before (unlike the Chuck E. Cheese and Jump Zone phenomenon that are a dime a dozen.) Everyone loved it - and it was an unbelievable $75 for as many kids as we wanted to bring!!
That's what I am aiming for....something the kids haven't ever done, but still really fun and unique and organized.
Long shot?? Any ideas??
