I posted here previously after planning a Hairdressing Party for DD's 10th birthday. Sadly the Apprentice HD we had organised pulled out so for simplicity we decided to go for a High Tea instead.
After the High Tea the girls are coming back to our place and I thought I would do a craft activity with them.
Does anyone have any good ideas?
My shortlist includes:
Body scrub making
Cooking baking & decorating
I am leaning towards one of the first three. Has anyone made soap, candles or body scrub with their kids before and how did it go?
I also thought about bath bombs however I've also heard they can either work or fail and I want something that is fool proof

Soap making is tricky because you use lye.
I've had success with the beeswax candle making kits you can get but it's a super quick activity.
Would the girls enjoy macrame?
DD#1 (10y/o) went to a high tea last year and the hostess gave them all a white tea cup and had a stack of Sharpie markers - they decorated them and it made a lovely keepsake (you just have to bake the marker on).

You might be overthinking?
My daughter went to a few 10th birthday parties last year that featured craft activities and they included:
Decorate (then fill) your own party bag
Making dream catchers
Making pet rocks
It was all stuff they could just get on with by themselves. Honestly, I think it could have been anything - it was the fact that they were doing it together that was thenpont.

My DD had a high tea for her 11th birthday. I bought a bunch of white teacups and saucers, and coloured glass pens, and they had a great time designing their own cup. Then I packaged them in gift boxes with a few chocolates and they took them home as their party favour.

My next door neighbour recently bought a plaster painting DIY party box for her daughter turning 10 fit in well with the Unicorn theme.

Making terrariums is fun - but no link with high tea. I like the idea of decorating cups.

I don't know why the kids love it so much but everyone in my house seems to be jealous when one of the siblings gets to make slime at a party.

Oh my goodness I cant believe I didnt think of slime!!!!
Does anyone have any really good recipes and is food colouring the only way to colour it? (dont want food colouring on my kitchen benchtop) but having said that if its a nice day they could make it outside.....
There are so many recipies out there I'm not sure which is the best. Would prefer a "non sticky" type...

Make their own cupcakes and decorate them
Spotlight and the supermarkets have slimekits, which might make it a bit easier

Doesn't tie (pardon the pun) in with the High Tea, but we did tie dye at a party once. We just bought cheap t-shirts from BigW.
You might want to suggest that they bring an 'old' change of clothes though. We didn't have any mishaps or major mess, but it's better to be safe than sorry.
I like the idea of the teacups with marker though. It would be easier too.

Search YouTube for fluffy slime by Gillian Bower.
I bought dry borax and mixed it myself when making slime with a class, as contact lenses cleaner is expensive.

The slime that uses the glue and borax is the best! You can even buy the glue with colours and glitter already in it so less mess.

We have a 10yo party coming up so I am trawling the new for craft inspiration ideas too.
A few (more) ideas...
No Sew Heart Cushion
Doily Dream Catcher

What about decorating their own t-shirt with fabric paint - buy white T's from kmart. Or pillow case when it's a sleepover party. But I like the teacups idea the best.

We've been to more than a few 10-year-old girl parties in the last few months, and mostly the girls just want to run around, dance, sing, tumble, etc, rather than having planned activities.
