Party Recap

We had an amazing art party for my daughter, Lily's 7th birthday this year. We wanted it to be gender neutral so we could invite her entire class at school. I made two different types of invitations. The one for classmates was a wonderful watercolor palette with the party information inside. The wonderfully talented Bird, who has an etsy shop called birds crafts, made them for me and they were just perfect. For the family members I made an artist palette with different pictures of my daughter on it to show different things she had been up to this last year.

The first thing that children did when they got there was decorate an art apron. They had cloth markers and ribbons to choose from. We also had yarn and fruit loops for them to make bracelets or necklaces. This first station was the crafts that they did while waiting for the other kids to arrive.

Once everyone arrived the kids could pick from any station they wanted. They could do the same craft the whole time or do different crafts. Stations consisted of:
Oil painting
Coffee filter painting
Pinwheels
Suncatchers
Paint chip notebooks
Bubble painting
Shaving cream painting
A rainbow cupcake decorating station
And one huge piece of drywall for them to do a group mural on

There was also tons of food and treats
We had three different colors of juice for them to mix together to make their own custom juice.

All the art they made went home in their art baskets that had paint chip samples as name tags.
