Princess dress-up parties have been a beloved occasion for little girls through the generations.
Who doesn’t love an excuse to get fancy and pretend for a bit of time that you’re a member of a royal family?
With Halloween just around the corner, there’s no better time to organize a princess dress-up party for your little one and friends.
Here’s your guide to hosting the best gathering of princesses (and a few princes) in all the land--from engaging fun activities to healthy snacks.
Healthy Princess Snacks
Since it’s Halloween, your children will most likely consume their fair share of sugar-packed candy.
That’s why it’s important to save the sugar consumption for trick-or-treating and instead offer some healthy alternatives at your princess party.
Watermelon sticks are perfect because they remain in line with the pretty pink princess theme and give kids a healthy but sweet alternative.
There’s also a classic kid favorite--ants on a log!
Featuring celery sticks, peanut butter, and raisins, with this fun party snack, your little princes and princesses will get a healthy serving of veggies, dried fruit, and protein.
That doesn’t mean that cakes and cupcakes should be left out completely--why not provide children with some adorable pretend desserts with Cubbie Lee’s Dessert Stand?
Fun Princess Activities
What would a princess dress-up party be without dress-up?
Put out a costume box (and if needed ask other parents to bring theirs, as long as their items as labeled!) and let your little one and her friends go to town.
Puzzles can be great activities to help kids bond and exercise their problem-solving skills.
Cubbie Lee’s Princess Castle Chunky Wooden Puzzle ties right in with the theme, and the puzzle pieces double as stand-alone figures for imaginary play!
