In the amazing words of Pablo Picasso, ” It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child.” That said, let your creative juices flow and enjoy our inspiration board for a perfect art party. Keep reading below the image to learn where to get all the details for each idea or product. (We regularly update our pinterest Art Party board – so be sure to follow us for all the latest!)
2. J and J Home is a blog filled with all sorts of craft and fun ideas. They threw a rapunzel party and had the guest paint “masterpieces” as the party activity. You don’t have to go to the expense of buying canvases for each child – they used cardboard boxes and set it up to look like an art gallery.
5. Fruit Kebobs (with a great recipe for rainbow pancakes) can be found on Quick-Dish.
6. These creative favor bags are a fabulous idea – the kids can create their OWN favor bag! You can find them at Inchworm Goody Bags on etsy. I might have the guests decorate the bags as an activity, and then fill them up with the goodies from a piñata.
7. This idea comes from the Monkey See, Monkey Do blog. Visit them to find out how to turn your empty baby food jars into bright crayon organizers. I like these for the art table at the party OR as a centerpiece for decoration. (And, of course, you can use them in your child’s craft area when the party is over!)
8. Cake balls on an artist’s palette – too clever! The idea came from Paper and Cake, and the yummy cake balls were made by Terri’s Treasures. Paper and cake published a great party guide for an art party – it’s definitely worth checking out. Don’t miss Terri’s blog for all sorts of other cake pop and dessert ideas.
9. A great activity would be painting t-shirts. The image came from Sara’s Party Perfect .
10. This idea is from a party featured on A Little Sussy blog. You’ve got to check out this party if you want some inspiration – it’s absolutely beautiful! I love her idea of using crayons in jars as decoration.
