Like tie-dye, only not. Party crafting for grown-ups!

Last year for my birthday, my family came over for dinner and cake, and we tie-dyed. It was THE BEST. I'd like to do something similar this year - fun for all ages (4 year old - 60 year old, 8-10 people), easy to do, somewhat quick, doesn't require everyone sitting down at the same time and "doing a craft", not too "lame" for the adults, but not too complex that the 4 1/2 year old can't do it without a little help. Tie-dying was fun for everyone, but I'd don't want to do it two years in a row. I've got two weeks and can get pretty much anything in store or from the internet. Willing to spend a bit of cash. Thanks!

Missed text = 6 weeks of silent treatment? Really? How do I solve this.

My birthday was a couple of days ago, and I didn't receive a card or a gift from my sister, which I thought was strange as we've always sent each other something on our birthdays. I did talk to my mom, who told me that my sister didn't send me anything because she was mad that I didn't reply to a text she had sent at Christmas. I live on the opposite side of the country, and she sent me a picture of the family Christmas dinner. I had just spoken to her that same day so I didn't think a reply was expected. I actually didn't think about it much at all. We've never kept in touch very often (~monthly) so I didn't pick up on anything, but apparently she's been fuming mad at me for weeks! How do I resolve this? [more inside]

I do have family/ friend celebrations planned next week so instead I'd like to mark the day by engaging in some luxury solo self-care. Suggestions? Snowflake: I'm in Hong Kong. [more inside]

Looking for a very specific birthday present

A friend's birthday is coming up and I know something he'd really like - a pelican skull - I just have no idea how to find it. He owns a few different bones (oxen, turtle) that he has amassed during his travels and awhile back was lamenting not being able to pick up a pelican skull, which apparently has a unique shape. I have looked online, but everything I am able to find is just a replica. Is there any place online or elsewhere that I would be able to track down such a specific item?

What's a good birthday experience gift in NYC?

A very good friend of mine has a birthday right before both of us will be in New York with a group of mutual friends. I thought it would be fun to gift him some sort of experience or activity in the city, but I'm trying to stay away from stuff that's "too tourist". I'm looking for something more unique- I've been to the city many times, but have yet to live there. Bonus if you are a a current or past resident!

Recommended songs for a happy young woman?

Hi. So a good friend of mine is a happy young woman, about to have her 23rd birthday. She's asked her friends for songs to play. I found a list of songs referring to being 23, here on Metafilter - but they're all generally pretty depressing and negative about being 23. Do people have songs they recommend, for happy young women in general? Her tastes are modern, rock-oriented and eclectic - she's a big fan of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, the Pretty Reckless, MGMT, and dance music, for example. thanks!

Please suggest a unique and wonderful gift(s) for a fiddler

Subject is a mature lady who about four years ago took up the violin and has progressed into fiddling. Probably at the early intermediate stage of expertise.

Thank you and I'll return the favor when the question comes up for something I'm qualified to provide an opinion.
