While we were busy setting up the art gallery, the girls got to try their hand at the art of face painting.
At the forth art station the girls made clay birds using clay, feathers, and eyes.
At the third art station the party guests each made an artist profile.
At the second art station the girls did a watercolor painting of a floral arrangement.
At the first art station the girls made marbled art paintings using shaving cream and food coloring.
When guests first arrived they started making paper chains. It was a great activity to have the kids do while they waited for all the party guests to come. The chains were later used as decorations at the art gallery showing. Supplies: pre-cut paper strips (ours were 1″x 8 1/2″) and glue sticks.
When guests first arrived they were greeted by a welcome sign along with lots of art supplies and books. A ‘happy birthday’ double-sided rainbow banner hung from the doorway. We also hung rainbow streamers from the ceiling.
Stay tuned this week for all the details 🙂 This amazing party was designed by the very talented ladies over at one charming party. Go here to learn how you can re-create this great party!
Here is a quick idea for a great Holiday centerpiece. We used a tablecloth from Target and picked up 4 packs of $1 ornaments. Using ribbon, tie the ornaments together to stretch down the length of your table. We also added 4 glass vases with candles inside between the ornaments. We also strung […]

Another idea for a great activity station is face painting. anybody can grab a paintbrush and try their hand at easy works of art such as flowers, balloons, and butterflies. at a party where the kids will be dressed up, it is fun to be able to add to the kids costumes.
When I was little my brother and I used to watch bozo the clown. This pumpkin toss game was inspired by the ball toss game at the end of every show. With plastic pumpkins from target, have the kids toss ping pong balls into the pumpkins, with them lined up getting farther and farther away […]
Instead of bobbing for apples, the kids went bobbing for doughnuts. They had to eat a doughnut off of a ribbon without using their hands without letting it fall to the ground. Powdered sugar doughnuts were a lot of fun, especially if the ribbon was moving a lot 🙂
Food for the harvest party included a pumpkin cake, witch cupcakes, leaf brownies, candy corn cookies, harvest chex mix, and spooky ghost punch!
Food for this party had to be kid and adult friendly. For that reason, we served cupcakes, scones, pastries, chocolate dipped strawberries, cookies, and plenty of goldfish.
With the theme being an ocean “one”derland, I used whales throughout the entire party. The color theme for this party was teal, light blue, and red. It was a lot of fun coming up with ideas and decorations! I made a banner out of cardstock and ribbon that hung above the dessert table. I also […]
I made a large ocean mural out of paper that hung in the basement. The kids colored cut out ocean creatures and decorated them with paint and crayons. Linus and I had made a few the week before to give them some ideas 🙂 All of the kids took home a beach bucket with a […]
