I just received the book Slumber Wonders from the people at American Girl and I think it’s a great book for your budding social butterfly. This book includes ideas for fun slumber-party themes, plus how-to-guides for invitations, decorations, food, games, crafts, and goody bags. There’s even a complete shopping list for each party, along with a tear-out door hanger to personalize.
An example of one of the parties was a “Drive-in Dinner Party.” Your budding hostess can throw a fabulous bash with a 1950s twist. Invitations are old 45 records you can purchase at a second hand store. Put your guests in the mood with a pony tail station, letter sweaters, and sock hop socks. Play games like Speed Tables, Diner Dash, and Savvy Serve. Dinner includes burgers, fries, and a milkshake stand.
As usual the thing I love most about American Girl Books is that it gives your child a chance to use their imagination. For this reason, the Thrifty Maven it’s no wonder that I give Slumber Wonders a wide awake four celebratory stars.
