  • Candy Count using heart-shaped candies
  • Set up a Craft center to make beaded or candy jewelry
  • Decorate a tiara using feathers, beads, glitter glue, pipe cleaners, buttons and stickers

  • Have a Barbie Makeover. Paint the girls nails with glittery or pink nail polish and do their hair with hair accessories, do some face painting or even Barbie Tattoos.
  • Dress up Barbie with Barbie dolls and clothes
  • Pea Under The Pillow Game. Take a small marble and place it under one of three pillow. The girls must then try and guess where the marble is by sitting on it or laying their head on it.
  • Play Musical chairs to the Nut Cracker Music

  • What’s missing? Place several items on a plate (like hair accessories) Show the player the tray. Then turn around and remove one item and show the player the tray again. What's missing?
  • Barbie photo booth - make the frame look like the outside of a Barbie box. Then for the backdrop use a tablecloth hung behind. I would use one that is all glitter or different shades of pink that are cut up and taped back together.

Barbie Birthday Party Food and Drink

  • Make a Tiara Cake
  • Make your own Heart or Star shaped cookies with pink icing
  • Pink chocolate dipped strawberries
  • Have a cupcake decorating station. Place one cupcake on a small paint tray and have the different decorations in the paint spots for the guest to use to decorate (make sure the paint tray have never been used for anything other than food).

  • have a fruit try with the center being the outside of a watermelon using the Barbie topper looking like the full size Barbie in a beautiful gown
  • Serve Pink Lemonade in large punch holders with fruit inside
  • Drop a small piece of cherry or strawberry into an ice cube tray, fill the rest with water and freeze for a fun treat!
