Name: 5 year-olds
Location: Atlanta, GA
First this was going to be a little playdate for seven pre-K girls to celebrate the end of the school year. Then all of sudden I had about 14 girls coming so I decided to make it an ART PARTY! My 5 year-old had been asking me to do an art party forever! (easy for me..I used to teach art!)
I know how popular rainbow parties are, and art parties are, but I decided to do my own take on it. I used so many art supplies from my house and random rainbow decorations that I already had (the heart boxes are from Target and they were storing diapers!), the gumball dispenser was in my dining room. I already had the white trays, some paper goods, and lanterns. I use those at every single party!
I made a rainbow fruit platter, rainbow veggie platter, rice krispie paintbrushes (with frosting), rainbow goldfish were put into the striped favor boxes, rainbow m&m bowl, paint splattered duct tape over water bottles, and for other favors I gave out rainbow bracelets, lollipops and mini paints.
The art tables - I had four stations set up. 1. Markers and crayons arranged according to color - with construction paper for coloring. 2. Clear contact paper collages with pom pons, feathers, clear dividers cut up, tissue paper and rainbow tape. 3. Painting with different kinds of brushes and sponges. 4. Make your own fruit loop necklaces! Each table had a rainbow tablecloth and a runner made of confetti printed paper - expensive, but my favorite!
The girls got really messy with paint and food, but were quickly cleaned by the popular sprinkler and water table that were on the lawn. All the girls wore their bathing suits to the party - easy so I didn't have to buy smocks!
