Since all three of my daughters have an April birthday, we celebrate them all with one big spring par-tay! They love American Girl dolls and so do their friends, so we thought we would celebrate the American Girl way. We did AG crafts, played relay races and just enjoyed a day with our dolls. We even served the dolls their own sandwiches and peiti-fours. It was perfect!
Cupcakes and a sweet station!
The kids all decorated an American Girl treasure box and made a bracelet and necklace which they took home along with an AG gift bag filled with a mini AG book, AG stickers, notebook and mini doll food and paper goods.
Activities / Games
We played several relay races that the girls could do with their dolls. We divided into three teams of ten and raced to pin clothes on the clothesline. The first team to have all the clothes in their hamper hung was the winner. The second relay required each girl to race with their doll in a stroller to a marked spot and back. The winning team was the first team to have all 10 players back in line. The last relay required each girl to pull a card from a bucket that had different tasks for them to complete. Each bucket had the same required to task for each team to finish such as, singing happy birthday to the birthday girl, dancing a funny jig for 30 sec., crab walking to the clothes line and back, swapping their dolls clothes with someone elses, etc.
What People Ate
The children were served chicken fingers, fruit and chips and their dolls were treated to mini sandwiches and assorted sweets. The adults had their own buffet with crab cakes, chicken kabobs, sandwiches, potato salad and fruit.
What People Drank
Strawberry lemonade, raspberry tea and citrus water.
