GET RED-CARPET READY
Stars aren’t the only ones who can dress up for Oscar night. Head to your closet with your Mini Me and go all out. You can also let your daughter be your makeup artist or you can glam each other up for the party.
Give your little ones their own personal paparazzi. Throw down a red carpet, grab a camera and photograph them walking around looking fabulous – they’ll feel like a VIP.
PUT THEM ON TAPE
Want to create a fun memory? Grab a video camera and ask your tots fun questions like, “Who are you wearing?” and “How was it to work with Spielberg?” You can even ask them for their autograph. Later, you can watch your little star in action with the whole family.
Head to your local party store and buy sunglasses, a red carpet, festive party lights and movie candy. This way, the whole family can get in on the fun.
Add your kid to the Walk of Fame with their very own handprints. All you need is plaster of paris, water and a little time in the oven. Then, voilà, your child is a pint-size celebrity.
HAND OUT AWARDS
Buy replica Oscars (the small ones are the best!) and present them to each member of your family for their latest achievements (new job promotion, acing a test at school, etc). Each person can make a speech to thank the people who got them there. Who knows? It may be good practice for the future.
