Frugal Fridays: Older Kids Help at Theme Parties

Our friends celebrated their daughter's birthday with an Angelina Ballerina theme. What I loved best about it was the special guest who visited them. To the little girls there, she might as well have been Angelina Ballerina herself.

She's the older daughter of a family friend who has been taking ballet lessons forever. Dressed in her recital outfit, she gave a mini-ballet class, complete with stretching exercises. What a pro!

The girls loved every second of it.

I thought it was an awesome idea to invite an older child to be a special guest at a younger child's party. So if you are having a pool party, invite a junior lifeguard to give swimming lessons. Or if someone rides horses, learn how she takes care of the horse then have a picnic there. Little kids are easily impressed and the older child feels honored. This makes for a frugal and memorable party!
