Kid Spa Pedicure and ManicureYou enjoy a nice manicure and pedicure so why wouldn’t your kids?  Kids spas are on the rise according to an article in the Lake County News-Sun.  Apparently, kid spa “pedicures and manicures utilize ME! Bath’s ice cream-flavored polishes, so kids can have nails that smell like vanilla, chocolate, strawberry or papaya nectar. Hairstyle themes run the gamut from “rockstar” to “princess” to “mermaid luau,” and hair extensions or a tiara are included.”

The only thing to top of your kid spa day would be a fabulous pair of flexflops in your favorite terry cloth color!

Host A Back-to-School Spa Party for Girls

Friday, December 31st, 2010

For most kids around the country Winter break is almost over. Your child is probably dreading going back to school because she’s been waking up at noon, going to the movies with her friends, and has been homework-free for two weeks.

Ease some of her back-to-school stress by treating her and her friends to an at-home spa day!

An at-home spa day, or a spa themed party, sounds difficult to host but it’s not. Here’s a list of items you’ll need, and a brief how-to, for pulling off an amazing spa party.

What You’ll Need

Facial Cream, Foot Cream, Mani/Pedi Kits, Nail Polish (Multiple Colors), Scented Lotions

Atmosphere is Key

You want your girl and her friends to feel like they’re at a spa the moment they walk through your front door. Lighting scented candles (fresh linen or flower scents) is a great way to get them in the mood for some pampering.

Decorate the area you’ve designated for the party with flowers and hang neutral, solid-colored sheets around the room. Set up stations specifically for manicures, pedicures, facials, and skin care.

If you or someone you know is a great make-up artist, set up a station to teach your guests how to properly apply make-up.

To keep the party moving along, let each girl spend a minimum of 15 minutes at each station to ensure they get a proper spa treatment.

Drinks and Delectable Treats

Champagne and wine is definitely out of the question if you’re hosting a party for kids and teens. But give your guests the next best thing – sparkling cider. Serve it to them in plastic champagne glasses to give the party a more grown up feel.

In regards to food, finger-foods will work best. Tiny sandwiches, crackers and cheese on a stick, diced fruits, are light snacks that will keep their bellies from grumbling at the party.

Chocolate covered strawberries and pretzels are also fantastic treats to keep your guests satisfied.

No One Leaves Empty Handed

Before your guests leave, make sure you send them out with a goody bag. Include a bottle of nail polish, mini hand lotion, hair ties and clips, and a pair of Pedi-Please FlexFlops.

You can also give this goody bag to your guests before the party starts so they can use the items throughout the day.
