This weekend we had a slumber party for D's 9th birthday... a house full of six 9 year old girls is not for the weak! But, when it was over, we were surprised how easy it was!
I have spent the last eight years planning elaborate birthdays with themed menus and hand made decorations (ask me about building a "punch pinata" and I still break out in hives) but the beauty of the older girls sleepover was that they wanted nothing to do with any of it... D wanted to roast hotdogs over the fire pit- DONE! She wanted a tent in the backyard to hang out in- DONE! We pulled together some very camp-themed party favors including flashlights , twig pencils, and compass key-chains that the girls could hang on their backpacks.
Then there was the cupcakes... s'mores cupcakes were the request. But google only offered "from scratch" recipes, and I am not a "from scratch" mom. Then I found this amazing hack! Brace yourself- it is too easy...
