Have each kid at your party make a festive hat by folding a 12-inch-square piece of patterned paper in half to make a rectangle. Cut slits down from the open edge, 1 inch apart, stopping 2 inches from the folded edge. Curl strips around a pencil. Curve hat into a circle, and staple. Punch a hole in each side; string with ribbon.
Kids will have fun making these whimsical napkin shapes by printing and cutting out our easy-to-use templates with regular, pinking, or scalloping scissors, and then placing the shape on a napkin. The dotted lines of the template should align with the folded edges of the napkin. Stack up to three napkins, and cut.
Party guests hope to play their cards right in bingo. What's their goal? To connect the dots, of course.
To mark the bingo balls, attach letter and number stickers to table-tennis balls. We gave our game kid-friendly small numbers: For "B," we used 1 through 6; "I," 7 through 12; "N," 13 through 18; "G," 19 through 24; and "O," 25 through 30. Cards can be purchased or made (or download ours). Use a circle punch to make bingo chips.
Encourage party guests to get creative when making these fancy bangles out of paper-towel tubes.
Prepare for the party by slicing the tubes into rings with a utility knife. Wait until kids are finished decorating before you snip the rings open for wearing -- gluing is easier when they're still intact.
