How To Manage Crafting at a Kid Birthday Party

There are several things you can do to create a successful craft event with a group of kids! Here are some of my top tips from being a mom and a teacher!

Choose Appropriate Crafts

Think about the age of the kids and the group attending. Make sure that your project is one that is going to be liked by the kids based on their interests, likes and dislikes. Choose a craft that can be done by the kids on their own without supervision. If you have special needs kids or kids of different ages – try teaming them up with one being a helper.

Test the Craft First

Make the craft from start to finish and have a completed sample to show. Some craft projects are harder than they might look in a picture. If you find the idea on a blog (like this one) or when searching online – make sure you are using a reliable source with good directions.

Have ALL Necessary Supplies

Create a list and stock up BEFORE the day of the celebration. If necessary, have a bag for each kid with the supplies they need to complete the project. Some supplies might be shared too like scissors or glue.

Pick An Appropriate Location

Make sure you have plenty of space for crafting. The time of year and the weather might play a factor in your decision for location too. For example, tie-dyeing should probably be done outdoors!

Yay for Kids Birthday Party Ideas!

  1. My favorite crafting project is one that includes fabric and my sewing machine! I love to sew! I also enjoy paper crafts like making cards and holiday decor.

  2. Really, I like all kinds of crafts. All depends on what kind of mood I am in and what hits my fancy or inspires me at the time
