Putting the Arty in Party

Putting the Arty in Party

We decided to give Ellie a party this year with just her wee-lil-friends. We survived!

The theme was "arts-n-crafts" as per Ellie's request.

After some pinteresting, I came across these two links as pin-spiration for the party.

For the game I cheated. It had nothing to do with arts or crafts. Just a presentation board with holes cut out, covered with tissue paper then a paper bag attached to it with a prize inside. Game? Well line up, go punch a hole, take your prize. Ta-da! Game over.

After discussing with my sister, kids seem to be totally content just being in another space with news toys and things to look at. But, I was nervous of not having enough to do and having 10 eyes stare at me like "what's next?".

I made a banner of Ellie's favourite things (recited by her) so everyone helped paint the big poster. We bingo-dabbed the picture frames and then added in a square from the big giant poster for everyone to take home a part of Ellie's favourite things "....awwwwwww."

But now I must leave and go investigate the basement toy room....wish me luck.
