Party Recap

Bennett is a little girl who adores Monster HIgh dolls. She wanted to have a birthday party that made her feel like she was at Monster High. After A LOT of research i to the world of Monster HIgh I think that the party accomplished just that!

When the girls first arrived they had to register for school. They signed in on a sheet that said "Sign In for Ghoul School" and then they picked up their "uniform", a headband with a flower a zebra print flower on top, and theor "schoolbook" a workbook that was downloaded from the Monster High website (which offers tons of printables for download), Then they headed down to the student lounge. The lounge was set up with tons of pillows in coordinating colors. There was an area for "Claw Painting" (manicures), "Face Repair" (make-up) and "Fearbook Photos" (costume dress up and photo shoot). There was a table where the girls could sit and work in the books they received at registration. Dolls were also placed thoughout for them to play with.

The girls loved the lounge so much they almost could have been left to their own devices for the whole party. However, we did have some other activities organized. First was "Mad Science" class where we created lip gloss. This was done in a way that did not require heating over a stove. All the ingredients were placed in zip loc bags which were then put in a bowl with warm water. After a minute or so they liquidified. Then the end of the bag was cut and they could squeeze it into a tube. After a shot time in the freezer they were set. Everyone loved this as they all were able to take home what they made at the end of the party. We also played "No Passing Notes in Class". This was a version of Hot Potato. When the music stopped whomever had the note in their had got detention and was out of the game. The winner was able to open and read the note and take home Monster High stickers inside. This game was also a hit. I had planned for them to take "Home Ick" and create Mummerific Fasions out of toilet paper (a version of the game frequently played at Bridal showers) and have "Fearleading Practice" (a version of Simon Says). They were having too much fun in the lounge so we never got to those.

The table was set as the "Creepeteria" with a large chandlier in the center which I took the wires out of and spraypainted black. I used electic tea light to give the effect of a working chandlier. They sipped Vegan Vampire Punch (for those who do not know Monster HIgh Draculaura is a Vegan Vampire) and enjoyed pizza. The showstopper was the cake - they had been admireing it since the moment they arrived. I have to say it was beyond amazing. Tonia of cakewish did a fantastic job.

When it was time to go they left with the headband, the schoolbook, lip balm, marshmallow pops and bottle cap necklaces.
This was definitely a party to remember. I am already thiking about how well it could transition into a super fun halloween party!

    How did you make the actual lip balm?

  • Margit F

    Margit F wrote:

    Hi Heather, This is basically what I did: Put a spoon full of Vaseline in a Bag, a spoonful of coconut oil, lipstick shavings and glitter. I gave each girl a bag and went around adding the ingredients one at a time (calling them things like "Cleo Kisses" and "Ghoul Glitter" etc. . . . Then all the bags went into a bowl of hot water. After a minute the girls took them out and mushed them to mix the ingredients together. A small hole was cut into the corner of the bag and then they piped the mixture into the tubes. The tubes were then placed in the freezer to solidify. If I did this again I would probably use pots instead of tubes because if they get hot then they will melt but that would not matter in a pot. :) Margit

    HI Kimberly, send me a message at margit@dotanddashparties.com. Also some of the things, like the workbooks I made, were all using free downloads from the monster high site. They also have issues of the monster high magazine that the girls loved reading!

    I had more questions about printed items so here is the monster high website: www.monsterhigh.com. Under the "Student Lounge" tab they have copies of Teen Scream you can download (they now also have a magazine for sale). Under "The Arts" tab they have some things you could print to make a workbooks like coloring pages. You have to search around a bit to find things but it's a great site with fun ideas. Have great parties all!

    I LOVE all of your ideas here and plan on ordering your printable package on Etsy :) I'm worried this may be too old for my daughter. She's turning 6 and it's possible that a lot of guests will be 4 or 5. It sounds like most of the ideas here will work for her and her other 5-6 year old friends...how do you think it would work for children a little younger? The lip balm may be a bad idea for my party....

    Hi Lacy, I think it will be fine with little kids. They love to dress up so that's always a hit. Print out some coloring sheets on line (you can find if you search) and they can color those in for a craft instead of lip balm. Try a "Cleo's Mummy Wrap" game (the traditional toilet paper roll game is great for all ages!). The pass the envelope will still be a great game. fearleading practice (simon says. . .) is good for that age group too. Hope this helps!!!

    Hi, I just went to the monster high website. Under the student lounge tab they have an icon for teen scream magazine. The link does not seem to be working right now but it is there. I also found this while searching the web and I hope it helps: http://www.monsterhighdolls.com/forum/topics/monster-high-teen-scream-magazine-official-made-by-mattel-with?xg_source=activity Good luck!
