Lola loves crafting, taping, coloring, painting, cutting, etc. So we decided to have a Fancy artist party this year.
We needed to keep it budget friendly AND I really wanted the girls at the party to be able to CREATE. I was inspired by a few different parties on Pinterest, but needed to change things up a bit to fit our budget and I also knew going in that some girls would want to spend A LOT of time on each thing, and some would be done in seconds/minutes.
Lola (and Faye) painted these jars and chose to have flowers instead of balloons (she also helped me arrange them)
We also made
Washi Tape Bracelets (soooo easy)
Popsicle Stick & Washi Tape Picture frames (I glued frames together beforehand)
FOOD is my fave:
I saw these Paint brush Rice Krispie treats on Pinterest and they were super easy to make and way less sticky for the kids to eat because of the stick!
Brandon popped some amazing coconut oil popcorn on the stovetop:
DIY Watercolor Palletes:
I cut the watercolor palletes out of gold poster board from Hobby Lobby & hot-glued paints onto them.
I was able to get 6 pallets per poster board. You could send these home with the kids or I decided to keep them for when I host playgroup/Joyschool.
We hung up plain white watercolor paper and also watercolor paper from this pack. We stapled Paper cups every few feet for the kids to share.
TIP: washi tape the corners of your paper and then staple (or push-pins) into the tape so when you take it down, the paper doesn’t rip.
We also played ‘pin the pink paint on the pallette’
Hand crafted some fancy paper straw Heart Arrows (easiest, cheapest and cutest craft ever)
And said goodbye (Treat bags adorned with mini pallets made from scraps of gold poster board)
I’m think that a Girls Night Out Watercolor party may be in my future! 😜
