Great 9 Year Old Girl’s Birthday Party Idea: A Spa Party!

10 comments

Spa Party

What girl doesn’t love the idea of a day shared with her friends, relaxing and being pampered? I think it’s safe to say that girls of ALL ages love this! So here are my ideas on how to throw a spa-themed birthday party for your daughter:

The Spa Party Invitation:

Spa Party Order of Events:

When the guests arrive, it is important to set the “spa mood”, so be sure to put on a relaxing CD of spa music, or you can even use the Pandora App to find spa music to play in the background. 9-year old girls love to work on crafts, so this party will be a mixture of crafts, where the girls make their own spa supplies, and then use them to pamper themselves as well as to create their own party favors to take home!

Spa Girl Foot Scrub and Pedicure

The first activity for the party guests is to mix up their own foot scrub- and it couldn’t be easier! Each girl should measure 1 cup of Epson Salts into a bowl and then she can select her “flavor”of essential oil, adding 5-6 drops to the Epsom Salts and stirring well. Pour the salts into a cellophane bag to take home as one of her party favors. Each girl should make two batches- one to use while at the party, and one to take home.

Fill small plastic tubs with 2-3 inches of warm water and add in the foot scrub mixture. (I used plastic tubs that I purchased at Target). Show the guests how to gently stir the water with their hands to dissolve the salts, and how to lightly massage the salts into their skin, which is why it is called a “foot scrub”. Have plenty of towels around for the little ladies to dry their feet when they are done.

You can pick up flip flops for all of the girls (which Old Navy often has on sale for $1!) and allow them to personalize them. They can put their flip flops on before their toes are painted (a teen-aged older sister or neighbor is perfect for this job!).

Spa Girl Moisturizing Facial

Set out an assortment of natural ingredients that the girls can use to blend their own “facial cream”. Yogurt, avocado, banana, honey, oatmeal, pumpkin puree, and even cocoa powder are all good choices. Give each girl a bowl, spoon, and fork (for mashing the banana or avocado), and have them prepare their own creation. After the girls mix up their personalized facials, they can pull their hair back using headbands and apply their homemade facial cream. Cucumber slices for the eyes would make this even more decadent! Have a stack of washcloths ready to soak in warm water so the party guests can easily wash the cream off of their faces.

Now that the guests have pampered their feet and softened their skin, it’s time for a little glam! Guests can make their own lip gloss- use craft sticks to place a dollop of Vaseline in each small cup (disposable bathroom cups work great for this), and then they can add a 1/2 teaspoon of sugar-free KoolAid mix- allow them to choose from cherry, grape, strawberry, etc. Mix well and apply to lips.

It tastes yummy and provides a light color.

You can purchase these small acrylic jars Great 9 Year Old Girls Birthday Party Idea: A Spa Party! from Amazon- 12 jars for $6.47 for the girls to take home their lip gloss as another party favor (this is an Amazon affiliate link).

Spa Party Food:

You can serve lovely little tea sandwiches for a snack- I made ham and cheese sandwiches and cut them into flower shapes (using a cookie cutter). Sparkling and plain water served in plastic champagne flutes with slices of lemon or lime would feel very grown-up!

Sharon, you come up with the most creative ideas! I love how you pull all the elements together to make it kid-friendly, yet doable for adults. Any chance your kids are into Minecraft like mine are and asking for a Minecraft birthday party? If so, I’d love to see what you’d come up with for that!

Hi, I’m coming up 13 and I have some ideas for my party but me and my mum would love if you could give a few hints? Nothing expensive, they’ll be boys and girls and no-one drives in my immediate family.

Could you help please?
Thank you!

Hi, I love this idea! I want to do this for my daughter’s 9th birthday coming up. My question is did the girls paint their own toe and fingernails? I can’t decide if I want them to do it or hire someone to come.

Some girls were ready to handle that, and so I let them do it (or do it for each other). Others waited for one of the adults to do it. I say if you know of a teen he would like to be hired to do this…. hire a teen!
