Miss Coon Rapids Emily Kallis and Miss Coon Rapids Outstanding Teen Kathryn Kueppers host the annual Princess Party Saturday, May 18.
The event will take place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the meeting rooms at Church of Epiphany, Coon Rapids, as part of Epiphany’s annual Springfest celebration May 17-19.
Young girls are invited to come to the party dressed as their favorite princess and take part in crafts and activities while spending time with Kallis, Kueppers and members of the Coon Rapids Junior Royalty.
Activities planned include:
• Royal snacks – girls will be able to decorate their own crown shaped cookie. Available will be frosting, lots of sprinkles and decorations and a popsicle stick to put on the cookie when it’s done.
• Royal photos – there will be digital cameras and printers so girls will be able to have their photo taken with Miss Coon Rapids and printed out for them to take home.
• Treasure dig – this will be the bucket of sand with jewelry and other items buried for girls to dig and find.
• Princess coloring pages.
• Princess crafts – girls will be able to make their own crown and this year they will also be able to make their own sashes as well.
• Gem stations – girls will be able to make their own beaded necklaces and bracelets.
Other activities include pin the crown on the princess, princess stories, face painting, nail painting and tattoos.
There will be other treats and juice boxes for girls as well.
There is no charge to attend the event, but donations will be given to the Children’s Miracle Network at Gillette Children’s Hospital.
