Let's face it, Lalaloopsy dolls are stinkin cute with their big button eyes staring at you! And being a crafty mom I couldn't resist talking my daughter into picking that theme for a party. It just sounded way better than a princess themed party. So many more exciting things to do.
In keeping with the theme we did lots of crafty things at the party. My 6 year old loves crafts and sewing and I knew she would have a lot of fun with this theme.Sugar crumb cookie being the favorite doll since her and the birthday girl share December birthdays.
The girls helped me decorate the table.
The first thing we did was color while we were waiting for everyone to get here. I made paper dolls for the girls.
Next we made button cookies. I had the cookies all pre-cut. They smashed the middle down with a cup to make a rim and then poked holes with chopsticks and decorated with sprinkles.I wrote their names on wax paper next to the cookies so I knew who they belonged to.
While the cookies were baking we got to work on our last activity. The sewing one. I was a tad nervous. Husband at work. No moms stayed. Lots of girls who had never sewed before. But they did awesome! My 1 year old was taking a nap and we all finished the dolls.
I wanted a sewing project but I wanted the end result to be something the girls would be excited about but it also had to be way simple for them. I made all the dolls ahead of time.
Next was opening presents and then the cake.
I made the party bags. Couldn't resist. They are just so much cuter than store bought even though it is more work.The mouse is sugar crumb cookies pet.
During the party a few girls said this was "the funnest party ever!" Gotta say I love hearing that!
