Here is a simple and fun DIY game that your child can play with friends at their Shimmer and Shine party. Each party guest can pin a wish on the genie bottle.
(Difficulty Level: Medium)
What You’ll Need
Sparkly gift wrap paper, in two colors
Adhesive gem strips
Gold glitter stars
Dry erase marker
How to Make
Step One: Use your dry erase marker on the back side of one color of sparkly gift wrap to draw the shape of a genie bottle. A pencil would also work well on non-glossy paper—you can erase lines until you a happy with your design. Use scissors to cut along the lines.
Step Two: Decorate your genie bottle cut-out by with gems and gem strips. Use the spray adhesive to glue gems along the genie bottle edge.
Step Three: Glue the genie bottle to a full sheet of the other-colored sparkly gift wrap. Trim away excess background paper at the top and bottom if needed.
Step Four: Put doubled-sided tape on the back of each gold glitter star, one per party guest. Once dry, hang the finished genie bottle on the wall.
Step Five: Blindfold one child at a time. Gently spin them in a circle until they are facing the genie bottle poster. Give the child a gold star and have them say a wish out loud, then have them try to stick the star on the poster. Each child gets a chance!
