Polka Dot Party Decorations
Polka Dot Party Decorations
There's no such thing as too many dots at a polka dot party, but it may look better to limit your decorations to a few colors. Choose your daughter's favorite as a primary color and a few others that are complimentary. Red and white, pink and black, yellow and blue and any pastels are popular combinations.

Cut circles from cardstock to cover the walls in polka dot patterns. Use a compass to get them close to perfect, or cut from a computer print-out. To add polka dots to balloons and other decorations use a stamp and paint or an ink pad, or cover with circular stickers found in many different sizes at office supply stores. Try to make the dots as even as possible; using a ruler and a light pencil to help may be a good idea.

Write "Happy Birthday" and your daughter's name in a series of construction paper circles, one letter at a time. String these together and hang as a banner over the entrance to welcome your guests. Cover the tables with a polka dot tablecloth (or course!) and napkins and tableware with polka dot patterns, or that match the color theme you've set. The girls will love to throw "dot" confetti; make a large batch beforehand using colorful paper and a hole punch.

Polka Dot Party Activities
Polka Dot Party Activities
It shouldn't be difficult to adapt games to fit the polka dot theme. Play "Pin the Spot on the Dalmatian" or "Music Dots" using large circles cut from poster board instead of chairs. Twister, Connect 4 and Tiddlywinks are great examples of board games with circular pieces, and you can play "Bingo" by making the cards yourself with colored circles instead of numbers and letters.

Trace the bottom of a can or use a compass to draw circles in magic marker on a large sheet of poster board and assign point values depending on how large or far away they are. Challenge the girls to toss colorful poker chips or other plastic discs into a circles like a game of "Skee-ball." Award first, second and third place prizes to the guests with the most points.

A fun contest that doubles as a decoration is to fill a glass jar with round candies, gum balls or small rubber bouncy balls. Let the guests guess how many are inside, and the girl who gets the closest without going over wins a prize...Maybe even the whole jar!

Polka Dot Party Crafts
Polka Dot Party Crafts
Children always love to make crafts at parties, and their parents appreciate the extra effort on your part as well. Have the girls decorate picture frames with colorful polka dot patterns using markers, paints and stickers, or oversized white T-shirts with fabric-safe paints and markers. Both make wonderful souvenirs to take home.

Younger girls will enjoy connect-the-dot puzzles. Let them color the pictures with crayons once they're complete. Older guests will also love to assemble their own bracelets and necklaces with circular beads found at most craft stores.
