I promise this is the last Fancy Nancy birthday post. Next week we'll dive into bunnies and eggs and all-things-Easter, but first I have a few more tips for throwing the perfect Fancy Nancy birthday party.
My mother-in-law helped us set the mood by reading the original Fancy Nancy book as soon as all the girls arrived. This was wonderful to help settle the kids and get them focused.
I printed out some free Fancy Nancy coloring pages as a backup in case we had extra time. Thank goodness I did! We ended up having about 30 extra minutes I needed to fill, so the coloring pages came in handy. You can find two different printable activity books available online:
Thank You Notes
Good manners are always fancy, so we made these adorable thank you notes out of card stock and scrapbook paper. During the fashion show, I snapped a photo of each child doing their "fanciest pose." Later, I printed them out on computer paper, trimmed and glued to the folded card. I typed up E's thank you messages (as she dictated them) and pasted those on the inside. E got lots of practice writing her name as she signed each of the cards. The girls loved their thank you notes; it was the perfect way to end a perfect birthday!
