10 year old girls party in winter

My dd will be turning 10 in November and I would like to have a special party for her with her school friends. She has plenty of them ! (There will be one 11yo boy, her cousin).

We have to do indoor activities because of the weather, and I have a small house, so many games are limited.

I need theme ideas as well as games and activities these girls can do.

Any ideas?

Well, I asked her what Girls in Grade 5 are into, she said "makeup, nail polish, and stuff".

I don't think I would encourage the make up, but maybe manicures or something.

Not sure how it would work with a young man being there but my 10 year old wanted a party and she fell in love with a birthday theme pattern that had compacts, lipstick, etc. on it. She decided she wanted a makeover party (in part because she had just cut 12 inches from her hair and gotten her ears pierced).

I invited the girls over and we did a skin care class basically - a friend of mine is a beauticontrol consultant and she came over and taught them how to clean their face at night, etc. Then gave them some clear lip gloss. I also got out a pile of clothes for the girls to dress up in, etc. They had a great time!

If the cousin is an easy going kind of child - he could 'escort' the girls in a fashion show.

My sister took her daughter and friends to a school of cosmetology for her birthday the summer before her 5th grade year. she arranged for them to have their nails done and to have facials (no make-up) As I remember they also talked to them about skin care. Afterwards they all went to a nice but inexpensive resturant for ice cream and cake. It seems they had more than that but I can't remember just what it was - maybe dainty sandwitches or something like that. I know that she had it all arranged before they went there. The girls still talk about that party and they are in high school now.

Another idea would be to have a tea. Have them come dressed up. You could have someone come and do their hair or their nails. So they feel very dressed up and pretty. Then have a nice tea with fancy little sandwitches and pretty little finger type foods. You could serve it on pretty dishes. I did this with one of my girls many years ago when they were around this age. It went over well then. It was a fun afternoon to be all dressed in their finest and to be treated like they were grown up.

I will put my thinking cap on and see if I can think of other things that we have done that might work for you.

Wow, you all have so many great ideas!

I am going to write a lot of these down to store in my homemade party book.

I think I am more excited than my daughter at this time

Depending on the size of your kitchen and dining area, along with the number of children there, you might want to consider letting them make their own bath & body products. Glycerin soap is easy and fun. They could also make lip balm, glitter gel, perfume oil, milk bath, bath salts, etc.

Of course, this is easier to do if you're already making these yourself and have the supplies and equipment on hand. Most of these require minimal equipment though, such as mixing bowl, craft sticks to use as mixers, measuring cups or spoons, and of course, something to put it in. Colorants and fragrances for the salts and milk bath can be found at any craft store that sells glycerin soap ingredients and accessories.

For the glycerin soap, you could do the melting, then portion it out to everyone and let them add color and fragrance, and then pour into a mold. Almost anything can be used for molds ... candy molds, tupperware (or similar), plastic containers (like for yogurt, margarine, etc), plastic cups, and more. I rarely make glycerin soap anymore, but I still look at things and wonder if I can use them as molds whenever I'm in stores.
