Inexpensive Birthday Party Idea

by Bryan Scott

Let's face it, kid's birthday parties can get out of control very fast, especially when you are trying to impress your kids friends...and their parents. Our daughter wanted to have a sleep over for her 9th birthday. She also loves drawing on the driveway with chalk. We came up with the idea to combine the two for a birthday party that she'd be sure to remember. 

Simple idea, invite a bunch of 9-year-old girls over, give them each a pack of chalk from the dollar store and let them be as creative as can be. We awarded them each an award (best picture, best use of color, most original...) and all were happy! A few pizzas and a movie before bed time and ;you've got the makings of a one of a kind ChalkFest birthday party!
