Have you ever wanted to do crafts with your kids on a more regular basis? Well, if you are anything like me sometimes you might need the additional motiviation of inviting other people to your home to also do the crafts. That is exactally what I did when I decided that we would DO CRAFTS this year! Did I mention I AM NOT CRAFTY/ARTISTIC???
Invitations for a Girls Christmas Art Party
No fancy invitations are needed. I decided the scope of the party would involve crafting and hot chocolate with peppermint stick stirrers. I then texted a bunch of my friends and asked who was interested in having their daughters participate in a girls only craft party at my house. Every single one of them made room in their schedule to attend. This was a drop off event which is why I didn’t really ask many young children to attend.
Planning a Girls Christmas Art Party
I then reviewed the video and determined what I had on hand and what I needed to purchase & what I should ask for. I asked the mamas to bring a variety of things for their children to use like sharpies, gel pens, foam brushes & paint pen. I also asked if any of the Mamas had some of the supplies I needed on hand that I could use. After all of that information was gathered I made a trip to Joann’s and purchased several items. Many of these items I would of had if I was a slightly more crafty Mama.
On Wednesday afternoon we held a girls arts & crafts party at our house for our 10 & 12 year old daughters. We had a total of 12 children at our home during the craft event. During the party we tackled one of the art projects offered in Flourish’s Winter Wonderland Mix Media Workshop.
I was not critical of what they did even when I thought it was really odd. I just offered encouragement, suggestions and helped them when they got stuck. I’m glad I didn’t say anything because the ones that I thought “needed fixing” looked the best at the end.
