Soleil Moon Frye, the actress best known for starring in the 80s comedy Punky Brewster, is also an author. Her most recent book, “Let’s Get This Party Started,” is a guide about entertaining with your children. The book offers party ideas for decorations, recipes, crafts, and games to make every celebration special.

Let's Get This Party Started Book cover

Frye is married and has two daughters. Her children often help her with DIY party ideas. This party planning book has 15 party themes for kids. Each party idea offers one game, one recipe and two crafts projects, all of them affordable, easy to do, and fun. You can combine themes to make a truly unique celebration.

The themes are all versatile. You can use them for small, at-home events during rainy days or for huge parties with over a 100 guests. These ideas are for birthdays, graduations, and holidays or for just a fun afternoon adventure.

Each chapter has several photographs to give you inspiration while planning a party. For parents who have trouble planning a party, this book offers numerous ideas that you can mix and match. Many themes can be set up at a moment’s notice, so they are great for impromptu parties. You don’t need to spend weeks planning a celebration if you use this creative, but easy-to-follow book.

With this book, children can help decorate their own parties using items found around the house. The recipes are not only easy to make, but also inventive for the party themes. Because children love to make things, the crafts projects help to give every child a memento of the party.
