How to Have the Best Arts & Crafts Party Ever

Children love to express their creativity, and parents are always looking for a great party idea. How about combining the two so your child can have the best arts & crafts party ever! Here are some tips for an arts and crafts party they will never forget.




Things you'll need:


  • fruit loops
  • yarn
  • Butcher Paper
  • Tempera Paint & brushes
  • Wood
  • Wood glue
  • Feathers, glitter, pasta, buttons, etc.



Pick a date. Send invitations. Your invitations can be your child's handprint on some construction paper with the party information pasted inside. By painting their hand and having them do the prints, your child can feel that they are part of planning the party.

Where to have the party is important. Some may choose to have an arts & crafts party anywhere but in their own home. A rec room, classroom, or picnic area are some other options.

When the kids arrive have them head over to a table where tempera paint is in pie tins. Paint their hands different colors so they can put their handprint on a piece of large paper that has been taped to a wall or door. After their handprint is done, they (or a grown-up) can write their name on it so the birthday child has a poster keepsake. Don't forget to date it! Have a bucket of water handy so the kids can have a place to wash up. This makes it fun and easy. They can use paper towels to dry off.

Empty some Fruit Loops into some bowls and give each child a long piece of yarn with one end knotted and the other end with a piece of tape wrapped around to make a "needle." Encourage them to make a Fruit Loop necklace. Boys and girls love this activity and then they have a snack to hold them over until cake.

When the necklaces are done, all kids find a seat around a large table covered in plastic or butcher paper. Each child gets a square of wood to use as a base. This can be a 2x4 plank that has been cut. In the middle of the table is a mountain of wood cut into different shapes and sizes. Some will be blocks, triangles or even circles. Each child gets a container of wood glue and a glue brush. Encourage them to build whatever they want.

When their wood sculptures are done, the decorating begins. Have a variety of items to add to their sculpture. Some suggestions are feathers, buttons, beads, glitter, tinsel, pipe cleaners, popsicle sticks, pasta, felt, or foam. Everything should be cut up already. No scissors are needed for this party. Watch their creativity soar as their creation unfolds.

When the young artists are done, not only do they have a fantastic party gift, they will be able to enjoy their sculpture for years to come. Clean up is easy by rolling all the leftovers into the butcher paper or plastic and discard. Now the table is clear for cake!

Tips & Warnings

  • Kids have a short attention span, so plan a few activities for your arts and crafts party.

  • When doing the handprints, you should paint their hand. Don't let them do it themselves. This saves time and mess.

  • Fill a bucket with water for easy and fun clean up.

  • Make sure you have enough of everything. You don't want to run out of supplies once the kids start creating.

  • Parents should be present if the children are too young. You don't want little ones to eat buttons or glue.
