Children's waffle spa robes

I'm looking for children's white waffle spa robes... cheap ones. My daughter wants to have a spa birthday party and I think I need to find the robes first before agreeing.

Any ideas where I can get them inexpensively? Hoping for about $3 each... possible?

Only place I could find anything at all at a decent price is, http://www.cottonage.com/Robes-on-Sa...-Bathrobe.html

The reviews say not to buy them because they shrink horribly, but that might be just what you need, depending on how old your daughter is, lol!

Instead of robes, how about a head wrap? They might be easier to find and cheaper. I've seen head wraps at Christmas Tree Shop and the Dollar Store.

You could also make towel wraps. If you can sew they are not too hard, just gather and add some velcro.

My DD had one last year. They used head wraps and then long towels, pinned, over their clothes.

I would get nice robes for about $10 (they have them at Target, Walmart etc) and have the girls wear them for the party & keep them as their party favor.

That or look at swim coverups. Those are often terry-cloth material and could pull double-duty.

Thanks for all of the ideas! I planned on the girls keeping the robes but also wanted to give them other things too. I like the head wrap idea. Maybe I could just ask all the girls to come in comfy clothes and skip the robes all together. Hmmmm....

We did spa birthday for dd10 and I had wanted to do the robes, but I felt they were too expensive. We ended up doing head wraps from Christmas Tree Shop - they have them at dollar tree sometimes too, since I don't think you have Xmas Tree. We ended up changing it to "chocolate spa". The girls also made chocolate lip gloss and took that home, we played a couple games and the winners took home chocolate / candy. Girls who didn't win got to pick huge chocolate bars to round out their favor packages.

I, too wanted to do this for beginning of June. What other activities have you come up with? I love the lip gloss idea. What a hit that would be!

So far I've only designed the invite... see below:


I am planning on having adults on hand to do mani/pedi's, maybe facials. I have some friends who are massage therapists that I may ask to do 15 minutes neck and shoulder massages, depending on the cost.

I also like the lip gloss idea, too.

You're telling guests to bring $5 so your child can choose her own gift?

The invite is fine - asking for $5.00 for a gift is not. Super bad manners - don't do it.
