Kindergarten is a huge year for growing a child’s love of art. They learn so much through all the projects they do and it’s so much fun to watch how they express themselves when they are left to create freely.
For Michael’s 5th birthday party we had an art theme and invited both boys and girls from his class. I knew right away I wanted a big art supply “cake.” Such a great centerpiece for the “free create” table and the kids adored being able to tear it apart and find a way to use everything in their own projects.
Projects at the free create table included decorating their own apron with fabric pens (and once the girls got there the glitter of course made it’s appearance!) pet rocks, colored rice, construction paper, glitter, glue and plenty of coloring options all kept the kids busy for awhile.
I ordered blank canvas cookies from The Wacky Cookie Company and made colored frosting to put in paint palates. Each child painted two cookies and they were all super helpers when it came to cleaning up the left over “paint!”
Treats for this party were so much fun! Paint palate cookies from The Wacky Cookie Company, creative juice, twix cereal treats, chocolate covered pretzel crayons, rainbow jello and cupcakes made to look like paint on a palate!
