Layla's Art Party

Party Recap

My daughter LOVES anything to do with drawing, coloring, etc, so I knew an art themed party would be perfect for her!

I didn't want to go overboard with activities, because I knew her party would be mostly boys, and they would play football anyway. Plus, less activities would help keep the cost down. So we did two - shaving cream painting & canvases to paint. I picked up 5x7 canvases in packs of 3 at Michaels (using a 40% off coupon for each one). Some supplies came from my stash, like the paper, food color & paint, and then I picked up extra paint brushes (1.00 a pack) at Michaels. Oh, and I hung up a white plastic tablecloth on a large piece of wood for the kids to paint. It was then used as a backdrop for photos.

Most of the paper goods and party favors came from Dollar Tree. I had my kids paint doilies and then I stitched them together on the sewing machine to string up as a banner. The goody bags were white glassine bags, and I closed them with a paint chip. Inside the goody bags were a mini chalkboard (michaels), chalk, sidewalk chalk, glitter glue, a pencil, 2 pieces of candy, a stamp & playdough. I punched the confetti out of paint chips. I used a large punch & scrap paper to punch a table runner for the table.

For treats we had chocolate covered oreos & pretzels, a tie dye cake, gummi bears, pickles (my daughters fave!), biscuit BBQ cups, chips, cheetos & jelly beans.

The invitations I printed and them we covered with splattered paint.

I'm sure I'm forgetting things, so please feel free to ask!
