I found this large letter "A" at Joann Fabric store. "A" is for "Art or for "Aly, perfect. I dressed it up with some ribbon and a paint brush we already had on hand.
We can now use this as a decoration in her room, bonus!
Aly and her friends used fabric markers on small white aprons I also found at Joann's.
They had a lot of fun on this project. We also made finger puppets with a foam shape
kit, also from Joanne's that was 50% off! Can you tell I made a major shopping trip to Joanns??
|Party Starters "I love art" Printable Party Shapes/ Cupcake Toppers|
Here are the Art Kits that I made for favors. I these brown boxes at Michaels over 2 years ago on clearance for only .28 cents and have been waiting for the perfect time to use them. Since we are
on a strict budget right now, these were perfect! Each box held a container of home made playdough, homemade water colors, 3 eyeshadow wands (work well for watercolors) a homemade crayon, and a set of mini markers (found at Target). I made matching labels for everything, including a "Thank you" tag that I tied on the handle. Each guest could then decorate their own art kit box as they liked.
I am seriously in love with my green cabinet that I found at Home Goods on clearance for only $30! The door is warped, but that is alright. It's my favorite color and when I have my own office to decorate, it is going in there to hold goodies!
|Party Starters' Rainbow Chevron Petal boxes|
The kids took home art kit favor boxes and the adults took home a Rainbow Chevron Petal Box with 2 peanut butter covered chocolate cake pops. Everyone fights over the peanut butter ones, so I thought guests would enjoy being able to take a couple home all for themselves.
BIG HIT with the older kids and adults.
I used a yellow and white poster board to create my own "piece of art". A framed Eiffel Tower to go along with all of the little ones on the cupcake toppers. I used fishing line to tie it up and make it look as thought it is floating.
Here is a break down of where my money went:
*Decorations = $21.40
Food & Drinks = $19.15
*Favors = 35.07
Activities = $23.90
Grand Total = $ 99.52
