If you have been reading Mess for Less for any length of time, then you know that I have three girls. While they love mess, dirt and slime, they can turn into girly girls quicker than you can imagine. Some days they are just in the mood to do some girly crafts and activities and the ones below always make them smile. Do you have a girl who loves girly activities too? Then they will enjoy these 10 Fun Activities for Girls. I should mention that boys will also enjoy these activities. There is nothing here that I can't imagine a boy doing. If you are raising girls be sure to check out my series, The ABC's of Raising Girls.
