Is your kid particularly creative? Does she love to draw pictures? Cut out pictures? Make collages? Finger Paint? You just might have a little artist on your hands. If it is a favorite class or activity for your kid, a great budget-friendly, easy-to-plan party is to invite your kid’s friends to a Potluck Art Party.
How to Plan Your Art Party:
Send a palette invitation to your guests, cut out an oblong shape from white construction paper. Draw the circles of the palette with different colors and on each colorful circle provide a party detail. Ask the kids to bring their own favorite art supplies to use and to share with the fellow party guests. There is no need for the kids to go out and buy new supplies, this is all about bringing what you have at home to share.
As the host, have basic art supplies available and enough for each kid, construction paper, paints, glitter, markers, crayons, sequins, glue, kid-friendly scissors, etc. Whatever you can think of to help the creative artists. Have everything laid out on the table, and when the kids arrive, they add to the art goodies and share them with each other. The party is all around the kids creating their works of art. They can hang them up in the party area as they are complete, or, if they need to dry, have another flat surface to place them.
The kids can take home their art pieces as their take home goody. The kids will really enjoy creating.
Snacks or treats can be served on basic solid colored partyware. Pick you child’s favorite color and coordinate around it. One word, partyware and decorations can be had conveniently (order online and delivered to your door) from Celebrate Express, which I love. No overspending at the local party store!
