FAB UP YOUR LIFE
Dream big! Future fancies slumber party
Hello, shooting star! Launch your BFFs into the new year with metallic star invites. Grab some deep blue, purple or black cardstock and cut it into five-pointed stars about the size of salad plates. Use gold or silver glitter pens to write out the deets of your slumber party, and pass ‘em around at school.
What’s the key to an ah-mazing party? Stellar eats, of course! Pick foods that your girls will love, but keep it on the good for ya side to respect the No. 1 new year’s resolution: to get healthy. I’m thinking delish fruit smoothies, homemade veggie pizza and some oatmeal-chocolate chip cookies for dessert. Yum!
There are bunches of career aptitude tests out there. In
fact, you’ve probably taken one or two in your time. Boot up the computer or
print out some simple ones for you and your girls to take during the party.
When the results are in, compare your outcomes and brainstorm possible careers.
Try this easy one, or google for others.
