Next month Sofia will celebrate her 11th birthday, so we need to start with the party planning. Actually we already choose a theme and had a few ideas but....
Normally we celebrate the birthday on a saturday starting around 11 so we have plenty of time to do some craft activities, unwrap presents and eat cake. Now here is the problem, this year Sofia has a ballet performance on her birthday(saturday) so we can't have the kids party that day so we have to do it on friday after school. The theme we had was Indonesia and the activity would be to dye fabrics and print them with wooden stamps, this activity takes quite some time and needs lots of sun to dry the fabrics! So we thought it would be better to choose an other theme that includes dinner, movie watching (in the garden laying on lots of pillows) and a small craft activity.
The first theme that comes to my mind is 1001 nights party, but what film to watch, I have no idea!! The girls are age 9-12 and I have searched but can't find one that seems nice ( they are to old for alladin ;-)
Do you have any idea for a nice (arabic) film or an other party theme idea (including dinner and film in the garden)??
