Since the time she was released by Mattel in the late 1950s, Barbie has been a favorite among little girls. That’s why a Barbie Beach Party is a perfect idea for any young girl. Guests are invited to bring their favorite Barbie and come to a Barbie Beach (or pool) Party. Beach party decorations can be a lot of fun. Using lots of pinks, purples, and other pastel colored balloons, a good sized wading pool where both guests and their Barbie dolls can splash around, and of course beach towels to lounge around on is the perfect solution to decorating. Beach balls that can be kicked around add to the fun. Of course, besides a sunny day, the most important component of a Barbie Beach Party will be having plenty of sun screen on hand to keep young guests from getting sunburned.

After a dip in the pool, guests may enjoy doing something super easy yet crafty like making their own body glitter, stringing together a beaded necklace, or creating a jeweled picture frame or hair barrette. Another fun game would include having a Barbie Dress Up Relay. Each guest will then take the bag of adult -sized clothes (in the form of costumes Barbie has been famous for wearing), and as it becomes their turn, the guest will grab the bag, put the clothes on over their own, run around the relay course, come back, take the clothes off and stuff them back into the bag (a shopping bag would be perfect because we know Barbie must LOVE to shop!) and hand it to the next team mate in line. The first team to have each guest complete the relay wins.

Finish the party with a nice luncheon of finger sandwiches and sherbet floats and this will be a Barbie party that everyone will enjoy.
