10 vintage clothespins (in a handmade pouch) for the clothespin in the bottle game.

Emily’s Best Birthday Party Ever! is a story of overcoming disappointment and re-discovering the simple fun in games played by children before iPads, Wii’s and XBoxes. After the plans for Emily’s birthday party go awry, Emily’s mom helps her move past the tears by sharing the story of the fun birthday parties that she had as a little girl and the party games that made them a hit. With a little encouragement, love and the help of an “Imagination-Inspiration” hat fashioned from newspapers, Emily and her mom work together, with the help of her dad and Barky, the dog, to reinvent the party, making it even better than the first.

Along with the story, all instructions for the games are in the book, including an art project–making and decorating Emily’s “Imagination-Inspiration” hat, perfect for a child’s birthday party, school or summer camp. You can even make Emily’s three-layer birthday cake.

Emily’s Best Birthday Party Ever! is available  at www.marynestorharper.com. Special Offer (June 13, 2014 – July 13, 2014): $5 off the total purchase with the coupon code EMILY.

  • I love the book. Sharing the way I played as a child when talking to my grandkids is amazing to them because they couldn’t imagine whee the fun was in comparison to what they do now. After recreating a couple of Vintage games, they thought they were “cool”. 🙂 Would love this for them. Thanks for the chance.
