Teens’ Broomstick Party (Oct, 1955)

Teens’ Broomstick Party

Shrill the wind and wild the night;
Spooks go prowling, black cats fight;
So set your spooky fears aside
And join us on a Broomstick Ride!

BY RUTH H. BRENT

This party should be planned and carried out by the teen-agers themselves—even to cooking the supper. Mother should stay in the background. Place: A rumpus room or good-sized living room. Of course, a cabin in the woods would also be ideal, as would the municipal recreation rooms set up by your park service.

Give an Old West Chuck-Wagon Party (Oct, 1955)

I like that one of the ingredients in the Buckaroo Beans is 1/2 teaspoon of MSG.

“Go West” Invitations

Have your party in the wide-open spaces of your own back yard, with all the Western atmosphere you can muster. Even the invitations can have a “Go West” appeal for 7- to 11-year-olds if they’re made this way: Paste brown wrapping paper onto thin cardboard; from it cut out a wagon like that above. From plain cardboard, cut out a wheel; sew it to the wagon, using a button as a hub. At the opposite end of the wagon, punch a hole; run yarn or twine through the hole; then tie it in place. On the wagon, write the rhyme, place and time of party, etc.

Treasure-Map Invitations

There’s hardly a lad whose heart doesn’t beat fast at the very thought of pirates and buried treasure. So for the invitation to this party, for boys of 7 years or more, cut a 12″ x 4″ piece of yellow construction or wrapping paper. Fold it in half.

On the outside of the invitation, write the young host’s name and address, etc.: “Captain Bob Foster’s Birthday Party, 120 Valley Avenue, Blue Mountain, California, Friday, October 14th, 1955.”
