I know I tend to go over board on parties... but, I can't help it. Once I get planning, I go crazy. I LOVE decorating, and partying with family and friends. he he. Nothing me makes me happier than my kiddos having fun. So, there I went.
I made all the candy, dipped pretzels, and dipped paint brush rice crispy treats. I was going to make all the cupcakes, but my local market had such an amazing deal, I couldn't pass it up. It was cheaper for me to buy them, than make them. I like the homemade approach to the party. I actually enjoy putting everything together.
What can be challenging is doing everything with two toddlers. ;) But, I always manage! And to my surprise, all the kids (possibly parents also) had a blast!
Here is the set up... click on the picture for closer details.
I made rice crispy treats, put sprinkles on them, added craft sticks, and then dipped them in candy melts.
When all the kids walked in, the first thing they saw was this table. All kids got to wear an art apron.
Then the kids came around the corner and where instructed to take an art basket.
I made art baskets for each of the children. Each bucket included the following:
- 8X10 Flat canvas
- plastic paint pallet
- canvas bag to take the painting home
- clear mug for the kids to decorate
- play doh
More party details.
Then moving right along to the backyard.
I had a children's table set up for all the crafting! Brushes, paints (washable), more bubbles, and chalk all on the table as well.
Jake, my handsome boy (3 1/2).
Asher, my beautiful 2 year old.
We had a total of 12 kiddos. Of course with 2 and 3 year old kids... no one looked at the same time.
Asher had such a fun day!
