Aren't these kids just the cutest? I had such fun painting all these kids faces at a recent party. I love turning around after I'm done painting the kids faces one at a time and seeing every kid in the room with their faces painted.

Abstract Art Party

This is a little late in posting, but I had to do a post about my daughters 9th birthday party. I asked her what she wanted to do for her birthday and she came up with the idea of doing an abstract art party seeing as that's something she really loves. 

It turned out to be an extremely fun party. We did all sorts of messy abstract art and the kids took home canvas paintings they had made themselves.

Some of the kids said as they were leaving that they never knew art could be so much fun. In my mind, that's a successful party! 

Painting Canvasses. We used silly string, mesh tape, masking tape, forks, etc. to add texture to their paintings and interesting designs.

Completed paintings. It was so much fun to see each child's unique personality come out in their art.

Sadly I don't have pictures of each different type of art we did, but we rolled out a big sheet of paper and did a sheet of round designs using balloons dipped in bowls of swirling paint, a sheet of hand and finger art and a sheet of splat painting. Then we laid them out on the trampoline to dry.

And finally we had a decorate your own cake activity. Ashlyn wanted me to cover a cake in plain white frosting and they would all gather round and paint the cake with colored frosting. I laid the cake on a cakeboard cut like a paint pallette and put circles of colored frosting round it like paint. 

A happy birthday girl!

These are some of Ashlyn's abstract paintings. She has a gallery in her bedroom.

I just found this on our school's website this morning :D. I face painted at a back-to-school event for Reed Elementary here in Allen. Great fun and nice to work in my kids school.

Ballooning fun

David, one of my balloon artist friends and I have been doing a number of events together recently. It's always so entertaining for me to face paint next to where he's making balloons for the kids as he is sooo funny and it's great listening to him having fun with the kids.

He really gets the most amazing requests. That's one of the parts I enjoy the most about entertaining kids, hearing their funny requests, I get a fair number, but he really gets some doozies and lately he's become pretty proficient at on the spot inventing.  

My favorites to date have been a tomahawk, a chainsaw, the Eifel tower (helps that he's French), and a crossbow.

We were at Top Golf in Allen last weekend and I had to take a picture of these as they were hilarious.

This first one is a working bow and arrow, I took two pictures, so you can see the arrow is launched and a fishing rod.

Pink girly girl party

My youngest, Jolynn turned five recently and since my friend Jono and I are teaming up to make fun party packages with themed parties, we decided to try out some of the fun things we are planning.

The party didn't really have a theme, but was just very pink and girly.

I have recently added glitter tattoos to my repertoire of things I'm offering since it's so great for the summer with so many swimming and water parties and so we tried these out at the party and they were a hit.

 

Ta da!! The results! They really are pretty!

I was surprised at what a hit they were with even the boys. So far in using them at events and parties they've gone over very well and both boys and girls are very happy and excited by them.

 

 For crafts we made crowns and tiaras and scepters and wands.

 

Jono made some awesome balloons, the favorite by far being the "minion" balloon from Despicable Me.

We pulled out the dress up chest, another new addition to our party packages and everyone had dress up time.

I am also in the process of painting some backdrops to use at parties and this was a trial run of our princess backdrop. The idea is to have an awesome painted backdrop set up in a corner with costumes and props to use for photos. These will be theme based and also just a generic and fun party backdrop.

 

Overall it was a resounding success with a very happy birthday girl!! We couldn't be more pleased and we're eager and excited to be able to offer these fun additions to your parties.
