At the beginning of last month Meagan turned 6. Her birthday kind of sneaked up on me this year since I had several big projects going on right before. No cardboard castle this year. But we managed to pull together a little party for her, and I think she had a lot of fun!
She asked for a unicorn party, and since I couldn’t find anything with that theme in my quick trip to Michael’s, I made up a couple of things on my own.
The game: Pin the Horn on the Unicorn (we play some version of “Pin the…” at almost every party)
I printed out a unicorn head picture and then using the grid techinique you learn in elementary school drew it out on a piece of poster board. Then I went at it with markers. The girls each got a horn to decorate with markers and sparklies before we pinned them.
The craft: Color a Unicorn. I bought wood horses and glued a piece of toothpick on the back of their heads.
The cake: I lucked out here and she didn’t ask for an actual unicorn cake. The request was for purple frosting and pink flowers. I bought pink candy melts and drew flowers (and a number 6) on a piece of foil (using a baggie with the corner clipped off) and just peeled the foil off when they were all set.
