Spa Birthday Party Fun
Make facial paste for each mom and daughter pair and set it aside in a small dish. For each pair you will need: 2 Tb plain yogurt, 1 T honey, 1 Tb cooled chamomile lavender tea, and 4 Tb dried oatmeal. Mix it up into a paste. Place 4 cucumbers in the dish, 2 for the mom and 2 for the daughter.
You will also need to have nail polish, clear coat and stickers or glitter set aside for the manicure time.
We found spa decorations at Hobby Lobby and the Dollar Tree in zebra and pink theme. To keep with the theme we made a zebra head poster size, and little cucumber cut outs on green paper to play give the Zebra a facial. The goal was to get the cucumber on the zebra's eye, just like pin the tail on the donkey. The winner got a lovely nail polish decorating pen prize.
We had lots of yummy treats like pizza, fruit and veggie trays, iced tea, cheesecake and root beer floats.
After serving supper we began the facials. Moms gave their daughters the facial and rubbed the gooey mixture into their faces. They laid on pillows they brought as I talked to them about their beauty. Then it was time to wipe off their faces, and wash them off. Girls then gave their moms a facial and read what my daughter wrote for the moms. Moms and daughters took turns doing manicures on each other. Then the girls played the zebra game, had cake, opened presents and just goofed around dancing and having good girly fun!
Here is the lesson for girls we did.
As you lay here with your facial on I'm going to read you what God says about beauty in the Bible.
The lesson for moms while they laid with their facials on was written by my daughter. She's now 9, but full of insights.
Here's her lesson for moms:
No need to be beautiful you already are. Moms are always a shinning star. What matters most of all is the inside. How you act, and that's about all. No need for make up and curling irons, cause God loves you how you are. Although it's fun to pretty up, your heart should be prettier. Read God's word and pray everyday, and help guide us, your daughter, along the way, so we can also be the shinning star, that you know we are.
