1. Make It a Movie Night – Make a popcorn bar. Pop a big bag of plain kernels, put them into a large bowl, then set out smaller bowls with different mix-ins such as M&M's and nuts. Let kids decorate paper bags to hold their custom popcorn creations.
2. Make It a Backyard Campout - Pitch a tent, fire up the grill for hot dogs and s'mores and create a nature-themed scavenger hunt the kids can do right in your yard.
3. Make It a DIY Pizza Fest - Pizza dough is easier (and cheaper!) to make than you might think. Let your young guests roll out the dough for individual mini pizzas and select their own toppings.
4. Make It a Spa Party - You already own the polish and remover, so creating an at-home spa for the girls is virtually free. They can paint one another's nails, do a friend's hair and play dress-up. Serve pink lemonade with paper straws to go with the girlie theme.
