for one of your dd's friends? LOL, in the last month Sarah has been invited to 2 b-day parties and I just don't know how much is too little and how much is too much. Any gift suggestions for 8,9,and 10 year olds?

Well for school friends I spend about $10, b/c that is what is seems like they spent at Kelsie's parties. For girls that age, any kind of crafy thing is good, like bead stringing kits, art supplies, Polly Pockets stuff, or even Brat dolls if you can find them on sale. HTH!

Hey Karla, We've done a kit where a girl can make their own jewelry boxes (with beads, etc) that are a hit - this is about $15. This store also lets you make a charm bracelet, so we've done that with their initials, and added some beads or charms that are special. The bracelets are $3.95 or so, with the beads going up from there. It can be as simple or elaborate as you want.

Have fun! If you come up with any ideas, please share!

Michelle, Katie's Mom.
