Lucy Riles: My sister, Barbara, is a mother of three girls and knows ALL about living with little divas! So when it came time to throw my niece's birthday party, Barb came up with a really fun, creative way to pamper her little diva (and friends) for the day!
Blinged-Out Flip-Flops: At home, set up a flip-flop craft station. What's a spa day without some flip-flops to avoid nail smudging?! When the girls arrive, have them pick out a pair of flip-flops to design and decorate. The station should include feathers, glitter, gems, fancy beads, sparkles, and flip-flop glue, which you can buy at your local craft store. Glue takes a good 12 hours to dry completely, so this is a great gift for the girls to take home and enjoy.
Set Up Shop: Set up comfy pillows throughout the room so the girls can lounge while they each get treated to a mani/pedi. With a little help from your girlfriends, that is: ask them to help act as the salon attendants, painting nails and helping with the stations. After the girls pick out a nail color (or two), let them sit back, relax, and enjoy being pampered from finger to toe!
Set the Mood: Blast your little one's favorite tunes -- they can groove along to Taylor Swift, the "High School Musical" soundtrack, or the Jonas Bros. While the girls wait for their nails to get painted or dry, hold a dance party ... their nails will most certainly dry faster dancing!
