:balloons: The Knitting Party for my 10 yo daughter was a blast. :present: :balloons:

I had too many games planned. A fun one was The Knitting Trail. I strung yarn all around our yard--across the deck through the playfort, over the trampoline, everywhere and clipped silly things for them to do along the way (say the pledge, Ring Around the Rosie, sing ABC, etc.) and roll up the yarn along the way. They had a ball. Of course, they thought some of the things were stupid but they had fun doing them. :roflhard:

Knitting Blindfolded was the quietest--they were busy counting and concentrating. Yarn Toss, Yarn Freethrown, Musical Yarn and Knitting Needle Volleyball was fun to watch. They made bead keyrings to attach to their knitting bags--O's bag, C is a knitter, A's knitting bag.

They didn't start watching movies until 11 pm and finally all fell asleep by 3 am. :zzz:

DD was disappointed that they didn't even work on their knitting projects so after breakfast they watched another movie and knitted.

I was tired the next day but it was worth it! :happydance:

Thanks for all your suggestions!!
