This party was for a 9 year old cat lover and a very artsy family. It was tons of fun.
I had planned the party for 12+ 9-year old girls, but ended up with 18+ girls from 3-9 years old. So it was a bit of a challenge to keep them all happy.
sometimes when I'm leading an art party, we do the whole thing in steps and each child follows along and they all create the same thing, other times, like this, it's pretty much a free-for-all and everyone gets to do their painting just how they like it.
I drew a basic cat on each canvas and gave the girls pencils to decorate and finish out their picture the way they liked. Then they went to work painting them and I ran around giving guidance and advice as needed.
I love seeing kids imaginations come to life on their canvasses and seeing their personalities shine in the way they complete their painting.
