Topic: Pub Crawl Scavenger Hunt

Question: I am planning a Pub Crawl event for 100 people. I need a "bar" scavenger hunt list that consists of "things you find in a bar" for players to collect (eg. toothpicks). There is probably going to be about 20 teams with the same list. I am hoping to have a few challenging items so we can determine winners at the end of the night. I am thinking about prizes for 1st place- 5th place. Obviously 1st place will (hopefully) have collected all the items, 2nd - missing 1 or 2... and so forth. The other thing I am considering is that the "players" are going to have to carry these items around all night, so I would like small "fit in your pocket" items for this particular scavenger hunt. Good Luck!

Answer: I have created a list of items for you, as well as a tie-breaker idea. You can view it by clicking HERE!

Topic: Butterfly theme for 12 year old birthday party guests

Question: My daughter loves butterflies. That's how I came up with the theme. I have invitations, and I have games (which I got from your website - thanks!). Guess what I really need is décor ideas, a special craft they can do while waiting for others to arrive, and anything extra you can think of. I saw the velvet butterfly poster boards for coloring with markers and liked it, but am open to any other suggestions for crafts. A cake idea might be nice as well.

Answer: There's a cute pony bead butterfly craft at making friends.com.

I also love the tissue paper butterflies at making friends.com. They would be great for decorations or even for a craft if the girls are into that sort of thing. For one butterfly theme party, I bought several of the pretty butterflies at the dollar store and used sticky tack to place them on walls, lamps, furniture corners (wherever a butterfly might land).

For an activity, I would suggest gathering a few different colors of nail polish, some nail gems, nail glue and toothpicks to create some fun nail art. The girls I know love that sort of thing. Toothpicks are great for dipping in nailpolish and drawing small pictures on nails. The girls could paint butterflies on each other's nails, and add some gems (if you can get them). You may need to have a few simple pictures of butterflies for them to look at before they paint. Also, sometimes small butterfly stencils are available. You could also stamp the butterflies on their nails if you first put a base layer of nail polish on. Whatever design you go with be sure to put a clear coat on top to keep everything on nicely.

For a cake, just cut a square cake diagonally and flip two points in to form the shape of a butterfly. You could use licorice for the antennae and any conglomeration of colors and patterns in the icing. You can find a round cake version HERE.

Depending on how crafty you are, it's fun to make paper quill butterflies, but they take time and patience. Paper tole cards are also a great activity, but again, they take time and patience. A lot of girls in this age category enjoy spending time creating something beautiful.
