little girl, 'tween, or teen's birthday party (or other celebration), consider our At-Home Spa Party For Girls. Or, reward her
for an excellent report card (or other achievement) by inviting her friends over for a Kids Spa Party. No matter what the occasion, she
and her friends will love it!
We've also done parties for Girl Scout Troops and Camps. We have had many AMAZING home spa parties over the years, and we know how to keep kids engaged and interested. We are among the innovators, not the imitators, and it shows in the level of care in all we do. We're also very flexible, and do our best to work with your plans and unique party situation.
We use *only* All-Natural, high quality ingredients, often Organically Certified, never any harsh synthetic chemicals intended for adults. We are Certified Pediatric Massage Therapists (CPMTs), so we may administer facials and massage therapy to kids and adolescents, as well as older guests.
This page is organized into clear sections to help make planning the party easy. Below, there's a section on Spa Atmosphere, then a Brief Outline of Included Services and Options, then Add-Ons info, followed by our Party Themes. Next, there are sections on Girls & Self-Worth. The Value Of Calmness, Boys At The Party, and Yoga Party info follows. (Other pages on the site go into greater detail on related topics, like Party Planning for Moms and Pediatric Massage.) Hope this helps! :D

Gift Certificates for Kids Spa Parties NJ / NYC are available for your
nieces, grandkids, or any other young girl relatives you feel you'd like to show that you love!
(Please Click Here for Gift Certificate Info)
It Begins With Authentic Spa Atmosphere...
Our Spa Parties For Girls are truly unforgettable events. Each and every guest participates, having the opportunity to choose which activities she'll do. We also encourage parents (or other adult family present) to get involved and receive a massage if they wish. We know just how
much goes into planning a Spa Birthday party and how stressful it can be! We are trained to work on adults, as well as kids, and it's actually a lot of fun to participate with your daughter.
We bring everything.
We only require a little
bit of space to set up the activity areas and crafts. We arrive early to prepare everything so your
daughter's Home Spa Party may commence in a timely manner. And we create a Home Spa with attention to every detail.
What's a Spa without candles?! Our 'flameless' LED candles look really cool, and they literally are! Emitting no heat or flame, they are completely safe with even younger siblings around.
Now, we also have NEW special (flameless) candles
that luminesce a rainbow of changing colors!
place brightly patterned throws over the furniture, and use pretty pillows, table cloths, ribbon, and other elements to create the perfect
décor for your Kids Spa Party. (This also helps protect the surfaces.) All is washed and
disinfected between parties. (For more ideas on personalizing your party with your own creativity, click here for our kids spa party guide.)
We bring a sound generator with ocean waves, rain, and more, as well as a MP3 player with a wide selection of relaxing tracks. (Some kids prefer to leave the TV on with NJ Music Choice Kidz Only!®, the Disney Channel®, or cartoons, but some girls may prefer a quieter atmosphere.) Others prefer realtive silence. We also
scent the air with 100% Organic Essential Oils, which the Guest of Honor may choose from our menu of scents.
We have a lot to set up for a Kids Spa Party, but we know what's required, and
do so surprisingly quickly.
experience, we've enthusiastically created truly spectacular Girls Spa Parties, constantly refining
our creative efforts based on
seeing firsthand which activities and crafts kids enjoy most. We're always adding new stuff, and
changing with time,
with the goal of making each and every Kids Spa Party event more amazing and memorable than the last.
You decide (ahead of time) how many activities you wish to have
each girl participate in at your
daughter's At-Home Spa Party. All five activities listed below are always available to each guest, so you don't need to know
ahead of time what each of the girls want.
The most frequent requests are for two or three activities for each guest, though some parents do opt for more, often depending upon the number
of guests their daughter is planning to invite to her Spa Birthday Party, as well as time considerations.
Spa Party Packages, Services, & Add-Ons
All of our Spa Party packages include Spa Services, as well as six Crafts, and other cool stuff.
Each guest chooses which of the activities she'll participate in. (All five activities are available to all guests, regardless
of package.) Or, you (or your daughter) may limit the available services to fewer than all five.
(You may upgrade to a higher package on the day of the party, but not lower.)
Our offered Spa Activities kids may choose from:
1) Therapeutic Massage For Kids.
Pediatric Massage for the back, neck, shoulders, arms, legs, hands, and feet, fully clothed and without oil. (Certified CPMT Pediatric Massage Therapists)

our Pink Strawberry Moisturizing Masque (Yogurt & fresh Aloe Vera gel) , Cocoa-ey Chocolate & Yogurt Masque (new!), or simply Plain Vanilla yogurt (for sensitive skin), each with

the activity is completed with Vitamin E
3) Nail Art Manicure. A Custom Nail Art Mini Mani, with a vast choice of cool, vibrant nail colors. Custom-painted Nail Art, ranging from Ombre designs to cartoonish characters and
graphical designs, to swirling colors, marbling, and

4) Scented Halite Salt Footbath & Pedicure. Warm soak in Essential Oil-infused water with halite salt, followed by a Pedicure. Mini-Pedi Nail Painting with an array of cool kids shades, OPI Crackle® finishes, glitter top coats, and more!

Spa Parties For Girls Included Services and Crafts
Spa Party Crafts: Fun, Educational, and Practical!
Our Kids Spa Party Crafts are lots of fun! Girls learn how to easily prepare simple, yet effective skin care products and about the ingredients that are used in each and why they're used. Learning while playing really teaches, and skin care is an important topic. Kids of all ages enjoy the crafts because they are fun and interesting.
Choosing their own personalized details allows for creative expression. Making their own stuff they get to keep makes the experience relevant and meaningful. The Spa Birthday Card also provides a space for the girls to express themselves individually, and at the same time as part of a collaborative creative effort.
If there is a large group, inevitably some kids will be waiting around. That leads to boredom. That's the last thing you'd want
at a party!
Besides helping girls learn about how to care for their skin, crafts keep all the partygoers entertained and engaged. Some crafts require adult supervision, while others do not.
At Home Girls Spa Party Robes - *INCLUDED*
When your guests arrive at the Kids Spa Party, they begin
by choosing robes. We
bring enough for all of the guests, in a range of sizes, styles, and colors.
And, we always bring a few extras, in case unexpected guests show up. All robes, washcloths, linens, and cotton headrest covers are
always clean, freshly laundered in color-safe bleach between parties.
Next, the girls get started with the Kids Spa Party activities and crafts.
Girls At Home Spa Yummy-Yes™ Lip Balm Craft - *INCLUDED*
Our Yummy-Yes™ All Natural Lip Balm
Craft is super-cool! Each and every girl gets to create her own lip gloss with a choice of the following flavors: Strawberry ,
Banana, Chocolate, Raspberry, Butterscotch,
Cherry, Coconut, as well as Orange-Sherbert. All are 100% Natural; the Coconut flavor is also 100% Organic. Girls can even make combo flavors like
Strawberry-Banana, Chocolate-Cherry, Strawberry-Banana-Chocolate, or any other mix of flavors they choose. Being creative is what it's all about!
An adult who is present at the party can do this craft with the girls while they're waiting for their nails
to dry or for their facial or other activity to begin. It's a fun way for a Mom or Dad to spend quality time with
their daughter and her friends. Because the flavors are so yummy and there's such a variety, kids always love it.
It's easy, all natural, additive-free,
and a lot of fun! We provide all the ingredients necessary to create our
special formula for the Lip Balm, and bring lip balm jars and everything necessary to create some cool, amazing-tasting lip balm!
In a few easy-to-follow, yet interesting and fun steps,
your Spa Party guests create their own custom-flavored
Lip Balm (food grade and vegan; no animal-derived ingredients) that they can
take home with them in round cosmetics containers we provide.
custom formula was created and refined through years of trial-and-error, finally arriving
at a formulation that is both great for keeping lips protected,
as well as tasty and sweet, without sucrose or added sugar, or anything artificial. (May, 2012: Now with smoother, more
pleasant texture! And still vegan!)
(Please note that the
Lip Balm Craft is included in all packages, and Crafts do *not* count toward one of the 'activities' listed in the pink box above.
Crafts are done by the kids on their own, or with the assistance of an oler sibling or adult
*WHILE* we are
doing the Spa Activities at our At-Home Spa Birthday Parties.)
Kids Spa Party 100% Natural Scented Glycerin Soap-Making Craft Kit - *EXTRA**NOW INCLUDED!*
Our Soap Making Craft has just been expanded and refined. (Nov, 2014!) Now there are more choices of fun soap shapes, a vast array of colors (opaque and translucent), new scents, dried flowers, and butters to add. This craft has gone from cool to one of the most incredibly amazing Kids Spa Party Crafts we offer! We take our crafts seriously. All the supplies for making glycerin soap are there for you, and we're always right there to help if Mom has any questions.
All Natural. This craft requires some adult supervision. (Must have access to microwave and refrigerator for this activity!)
Girls Spa Party Custom Painted Nail Art™ - *INCLUDED SPA ACTIVITY OPTION*
Not only will your little girl and her friends have the option of having manicures if they so choose,
they also have a choice of complex nail art designs.
We bring brushes of all shapes and
sizes, as well as stippling tools, a dizzying array of nail colors (and more to be blended at request!),
as well as an aptitude, interest, and
academic background in art and illustration.
Anything from squirrels, horses, hearts, roses, tulips, and more, to swirling funky psychedelic abstract art,
colorful and bright, to more conservative designs
such as two-tone, split-color, and Ombre color fades are also possible. We encourage each and every
participant to carefully consider what she
wants painted on her nails.
We remind each guest at our Mobile Kids Spa Parties that plain one-color-nails or even French mani's are reserved, conservative, and
elegant....truly fine - however,
we also inform every girl that we offer other choices. The limit is only each girl's imagination.
(February, 2013: New!) Solvent-Free Natural nail polish is now available as a Mini Mani choice for Girls Spa Party guests.
This will be a great relief to Moms intent on protecting their children from products containing synthetic chemicals, as now their girls may also participate in the activity, and don't have to feel left out from all the fun. We strive for all the attendees at our Mobile Spa Parties for Girls to have the best time ever, even those whose parents are concerned with kids' chemical exposure!
Kids today are into the newest-latest in everything. That's why we now offer exciting new choices in nail art at our Spa Parties for Tweens and Teens:
OPI Shatter™ colors, as well as Glow-In-the-Dark Clear Coat in various colors, Magnetic Speckle Pattern Polish in a variety of shades, and many more ultra-now, hip polishes that are popular right at this moment! As artists, we are always seeking new
types of nail polish, resulting in an ever-increasing variety of
options and designs we can do for a Mini Mani. (Please check back in December 2014 - Our Nail Art Mini Mani Page with even more info is coming soon!~)
One issue we've encountered again and again at our Girls Home Spa Parties is the smudging of nail art.
Even when placing fingers into a nail dryer, manicures can easily be ruined. Girls get very upset at having really cool
nails for a total of only five minutes! After seeing this occur one too
many times, we knew we had
to find a solution. We now offer girls at our Kids Spa Parties the option of comfortable Manicure Protectors.
Nail Protectors preserve nail art
at our Mobile Spa Parties for Girls.
Girls can choose from a wide range
of custom nail art designs.
Kids Spa Party Mani Nail Art
Kids Spa Birthday Card/Guest Board Craft - *INCLUDED*
(May, 2012: NEW!) The Kids Spa Birthday Card is a large card that the party guests create
together. Even the Birthday Girl can join the fun and help decorate the card! (We bring a ton of colored markers and thick foam-core board.)
The kids can decorate
the card with designs, draw pictures, add stickers, write something nice, or simply write/sign their names.
The Birthday Girl gets to keep the card, and a large photo of the card goes into your daughter's Spa Party Photo Gallery as well. (For parties that are not birthday-themed, kids sign the card as a guest board instead.)
DVD Slideshow and In-Home Spa Party Photo Gallery*INCLUDED*
-FREE DVD slideshow mailed to you after the party. We mail enough copies for yourself and your daughter, as well as each of the guests, within weeks of the party. The slideshow features photos taken during the party, with soothing spa music in the background. Memories fade, but with a DVD of the party, they'll remember the party forever.
-FREE Online Photo Album of the Event. Sadly, even the most fun and entertaining Home Spa Party must eventually come to an end.
what Moms who've hosted our past parties tell us, the Guest of Honor and her friends usually talk about our Home Spa Parties for quite some time!
The positive and joyous moments in a girl's life are important; these memories with friends and family are treasured for a lifetime. We really do
our best to create the most positive and fun experience for the kids. To keep the
memories of your daughter's Spa Party vivid, we've created our Girls Spa Party Image Gallery.
We take lots and lots of pictures! Within a few more weeks, we have the photos posted to our
web site's Girls Spa Party Gallery Page. All photos posted are fully professional quality, clear and focused, as well as
color corrected. The Guest of Honor and her friends can even add their own captions to the pics!~ Just ask!!
*Right now, it may possibly be a bit more time than that!
As of February, 2014, we have just updated our Kids Spa Party Photo Gallery section. What we offer now is THE coolest, craziest Spa Party Gallery on the web! We have been working on this version for over a year, and it offers thumbnail views for cell phones, room for kids' and parents' comments, 4HD super hi-res images, so you an dyour family can view the fun on a larger screen LED TV, as well as fun extras like games and effects.
Images from our Mobile Spa for Kids parties may be linked to on your Pinterest or other social media page.
Moms like this feature because they can share the fun their daughter had with
family and friends. For tweens and teens, it's fun because they can share with friends on Vine or
other social networking sites. Pictures from the
Spa Party may also be downloaded onto your computer, for placement in digital picture frames or for use as Windows or Mac

We also offer additional services to our party guests,

Girls Spa Party Photo Prints & Memento Photo Post Cards *EXTRA*
We also offer high-quality 'real life' prints of images developed at a
reputable photo lab on professional-grade Kodak® paper, from images that you select from your daughter's Home Spa Party Gallery.
While digital picture frames are novel and fun, sometimes traditional photographic prints are in order.
(March, 2012: New!) We also offer Kids Spa Party Photo Postcards™ that fit in an envelope and may be mailed to each of the guests after the event.
With the image of your choice, usually a group picture from the party,
as well as custom graphics and your choice of personalized text,

Girls Spa Party Gift Bags - *EXTRA*

semi-precious stone, or semi-precious stone jewelry piece (April, 2012: NEW!!!),

Sparkling Apple Cider For The Kids Spa Party Guests - *EXTRA*
Chilled Sparkling Apple Cider is also available for all party guests.
(Organic/Non-organic types available)
Non-alcoholic (of course!!) and tasty, kids love it. Sparkling cider is a fizzy drink, much like champagne, and is often used
as a healthier non-alcoholic substitute. For many kids, it's a real
novelty. And, it's a great way to introduce girls to an all-natural beverage made from apples, a nutritious source of vitamins and
minerals, and various phytochemicals that are good for health.
Many kids today shun drinking juice, and instead prefer soft drinks or juice 'drinks', which are usually mostly water, sugar, and a
very small percentage of fruit juice.
Kids Spa Party Chocolate Fondue Fun - *EXTRA*
Chocolate Fondue Fun. Of course, a Home Spa Party for Girls wouldn't be complete without
a chocolate fondue fountain! For an additional fee, we bring the chocolate, as well as fresh strawberries,
pineapples, and cookies to dip.
Kids can also dip your own cookies, as well as
any other party foods you have prepared or purchased for the event, from cupcakes to pretzels!
All in all, this is one of the most fun extras we offer,
and is always a hit with every age group.
You choose (ahead of time) the type of Chocolate, either Soy-based dairy-free OR traditional milk chocolate,
as well as the flavors, such as peanut butter chocolate,
dark chocolate, white chocolate, as well as natural coconut flavor, butterscotch flavor, and more.
We can also bring colored chocolate, or even swirled colors to dip into!
Just let us know exactly what you want.
You can have two different
multi-colored chocolates in the Guest of Honor's
favorite colors, flavors, and types of chocolate. We'll also bring coconut shreds
if you'd like!
Or, you can choose cheese and crackers ~instead~ of chocolate and fruit, or have chocolate and fruit, as well as a second
fondue pot with melted
cheese and crackers on the side for dipping. You can choose the variety of cheese that we'll bring,
ranging from Cheddar to Bleu to Vegan dairy-free 'cheese' and many more.
Kids Spa Party Homemade Chocolate Making Craft - *EXTRA*

Mailed directly to guests, all you need to do is provide their contact information and addresses. Printed on high-quality
card stock, or the option of textured 100% Linen Select Paper. From the moment your guests receive their invitations, they'll know
that your party is going to be something extraordinary!
Click Here, or on Any of the Below Images, For Our Kids Spa Party Invitations Image Gallery Page
Kids Spa Party Laminated VIP Lanyards for All Guests *EXTRA*
Lanyards are another add-on available to customize your daughter's Spa Party. Each party guest will receive a lanyard with her name printed on it.
We will even bring a couple of blank ones in case unexpected guests arrive - there's nothing worse than excluding unintentionally! Lanyards are provided
to Kids Spa Party guests at the time of arrival.
Each VIP Card is custom printed with each guests' name and laminated in plastic. Your may also choose from an assortment of
designs. These also make fun keepsakes. In a larger group of kids, with many girls who don't know one another, lanyards may make socializing easier.
Mobile Spa Parties for kids are about relaxing and having a memorable time with friends and family, not feeling stressed. If the girls are a very shy group, and there are a lot of guests attending, many of whom have not previously met, lanyards might be a good idea.
Jagua Temporary, Yet Lasting, 'Tattoo' Designs- *EXTRA*
Jagua tattoos are the NEWEST, LATEST!! (July, 2016) It's sort of like body glitter, in that both are not actually tattoos. But unlike the Glitter variety, the Jagua Tattoos have pigment that stains the skin, rather than having a substance affixed to the skin with adhesive, as in the Glitter type. It's not anything harsh; it's merely the dye from the fruit of the South American plant, Genipa americana, or simply Jagua.
Embera girl with Jagua body art, Panama. Image courtesy of Wikipedia Jagua entry.
Jagua Tattoos have been used in South America for thousands of years, and have survived as a cultural tradition among those inhabiting the region. Children still, to this day, receive Jagua (temporary) tattoos, in keeping with the cultural traditions. Of course, the designs we paint are different than traditional designs, more what kids in America would prefer, such as smiley faces, tribal designs, peace signs, and flowers.
Please note: This temporary form of skin decoration lasts up to two weeks.
Glitter Body Art Temporary 'Tattoo' Designs for Kids Spa Guests- *EXTRA*
Each guest receives one glitter body art design, executed in sparkling colored glitter.
The Glitter Body Art washes off in a few days, and is a lot of fun. Glitter Body Art is unlike the usual temporary tattoos
it doesn't look anything like a tattoo, just colorful glitter arranged in a cool pattern. Guests choose the pattern.
Spa Party Themed Add-Ons *extra fees apply
Add-On Themes are like other add-ons, in that they're not included in any of our packages. The difference is, however, that each themed add-on can totally change the vibe of the party. Think of your daughter and her friends, and whether any of the themes might suit them.
This was a new concept to us, introduced by a Mom who booked with us a while back.
We bring PJs so the kids can have a pretend-sleepover party. Ideal if you want the kids to feel like it's a sleepover, without actually having any guests stay overnight. Great for little ones, but older kids have fun, too. (This does add extra time to the party)
Dance Party *EXTRA*
We bring the beat! This is great for dancers or groups with tons of energy. Includes a blacklight, pulsing strobe, colorful lighting effects, and a mini-SD card with tons of danceable tracks of all types on it. You provide the speakers and the space. (Requires a separate room with ample space.)
Kids Yoga Session *EXTRA*
We take the kids through a brisk and varied series of stretches and poses, incorperating Hatha Yoga, Do-In, and more. Great for active kids and little yogis! Also lead kids through a focused relaxation session, teaching them how to breathe deeply and untense their bodies and minds.
American Girl® Doll Party *EXTRA*
Your daughter and friends can receive spa treatments alongside their American Girl dolls! Handmade felt Cuke slices and tubs with "bubbles" for American Girl dolls included. Yay!
Girl Scouts® Party *EXTRA*
Inquire with us about which badges the girls would qualify for, having participated in the Spa Party activities and crafts. We will also do a short presentation so that the girls will qualify, if necessary. We have held Girl Scout parties for both troops and camps in the past.
Groovy 60s-Themed Party *EXTRA*
Peace and Love! Get artsy! This party brings the girls a retro-blast, celebrating the art and music of America in the 1960s. With additional crafts, decor elements, and vintage music, hair styling, outrageous '60s makeup, and abstract, funky nail art, our Mobile Kids Spa will be time-warped into an even MORE colorful, MORE creative scene.
The featured 1960s-themed crafts include creating Tie-Dye Tee Shirts. There is also a bead craft; kids get to make cool bracelets! A fingerpainting craft is also part of the package. Decor includes lava lamp, psychedelic throws, and hair styling and nails with 60s cultural themes. Relive a time when American creativity and expression were at an all-time summit.
Spa Parties For Girls & Self Worth: Learning Good Body Care Habits
An At Home Spa Party For Girls is a great opportunity for a young girl to
gain self esteem, learn to keep her skin clean and clear, and have a chance to laugh and be silly with her friends. Overall, it is a chance
to grow, in terms of self worth, helping her to see that she is unique and worthy of respect and care.
We feel that how we orient our kids
at a young age affects them later in life, and good habits are important. Girls should learn to appreciate their individual beauty, carefully caring for their hair, nails,
and skin, the same way they
learn to brush their teeth and floss. It's an important part of growing up and really has nothing at all to do with vanity.
See our recent article on
(Click Here For Article - Girls Spa Parties: A Positive Experience Fostering Emotional Well-Being and Social Growth)
It Goes Beyond Body & Beauty Care: The Value of Stillness
Self-care means attending to not only body and beauty care, but emotional and mental self-care as well. Girls learn to breathe deeply, relax and be still, to quiet their minds and feel peace. Facials, pediatric massage, and yoga stretches, all help to accomplish this goal. Kids learn that stress, no matter the cause, must be dealt with calmly and with inner strength.
But that's not it; there's an even deeper level. All faiths appreciate the value of inner stillness. "Be still and Know That I Am..." is a phrase familiar to most of Jewish, Christian, and Muslem faiths. It cannot be overlooked. Hindus, as well as Buddhists of all types, also appreciate the prized value of inner stillness.
Even modern psychologists and secular humanists, who probably contest most of what the Faiths of the world have to say, can agree that different brainwave states produced during massage, yoga stretching, and meditation (not unlike lying supine and still as during a facial), are all associated with mentally clear and emotionally calm brainwave states, such as Alpha, Theta, and Delta waves. It's been tested in a clinical setting, so it isn't a matter of opinion.
Boys are welcome. There's no reason boys can't be
included at Kids Spa Parties, or why they can't participate in activities if they're at a girl's Spa Birthday Party. (Of course, some
activities are really more appropriate for girls, such as having nail art painted. And sometimes, girls want an 'all-girl' guest list.)
The point is, if a boy cousin
or sibling is at a spa birthday for his relative,
he doesn't have to feel left out by being forbidden to participate. There's nothing 'girly'
about getting a massage, and a facial doesn't involve putting on makeup or being fashionable. What teen, boy or girl, ISN"T going to want clearer skin, or be rid of final exams tension in their shoulders!?

& Yoga Parties For Boys & Girls (Ages Three and Up)
At our Yoga
& Massage Parties, guests each receive the option of therapeutic massage,
as with our Massage Party package.
a Yoga & Massage Party, however, the group is also led through a fun,
fast-paced workout session that incorporates Hatha Yoga, a traditional system of fitness from India, consisting of
stretches and still poses called Asanas, as well as
deep breathing exercises, which together foster
a feeling of relaxation. Some Chi Kung exercises,
taken from an ancient Chinese system of keeping fit, also contribute to our routine.
Kids find these exercises challenging and interesting, different than the usual calisthenics done in gym class, though
many schools now teach kids how to stretch and learn to relax.
These various exercises
encourage physical fitness through body awareness and help
increase awareness of breathing, and can be helpful when applied to sports. Learning to relax can also
help with studying, and dealing with the stresses of a kid's life.
