An Arts and Crafts Party Your Elementary Schoolers Will Love
Whether you flip through a crafts-for-kids book ahead of time and select specific projects for party guests, or just let their imaginations run wild, an arts and crafts party is always a big hit with school-aged children.
The night before your Arts and Crafts Party, bake up batches of "canvases" (plain cupcakes and sugar cookies).
Give your guests colored frostings, bite-sized candies and licorice string and watch them create their own edible masterpieces.
To serve a meal with more substance, give each child an English muffin or a pita bread. Offer sauce, veggies, cheeses and meats and let them create their own mini pizzas.
Have the birthday child help make invitations using craft materials.
- Cover a large folding table with heavy duty craft paper and set out a variety of supplies: construction paper, craft foam, scissors, crayons, markers, rubber stamps, glue, glitter, craft paint and brushes, colored yarn, pom-poms, pipe cleaners. Let the kids use their imagination in a creativity session.
- Provide pre-packaged kits from the craft store to make jewelry, picture frames, sand art, or even a bird house.
- Challenge kids to create a unique portrait, either of themselves or their friends.
- Have the kids make birthday cards for the guest of honor. Have the birthday child make thank you cards.
