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!
