My daughters 3rd birthday is coming up and every morning she wakes up and says, "It's my BIRTHDAY!" Looks like this was the year to have a real party. not just the family party. So the planning has started. The only problem is she isn't "in" to any one thing. I keep searching for a theme for her party but couldn't find anything that worked. As I was searching I found a book themed one, this would be really cool if she was a few years older. I wanted the kids to have fun and since none of them read I didn't see having all these book activities as a very fun time. B and I keep tossing ideas around, then it hit me. An Art party. What kid doesn't love to color and paint. The party is still a couple weeks away which means I'm hunting for everything. One activity we are doing is painting. Sounds sorta everyday, but I got canvases for all the kids and came up with this cool idea for a paint palette.
-Plastic plate (I used some plastic plates I had extra leftover from her baptism.)
-2 oz plastic cups (Like the kind your salad dressing is sent in for take out)
Glue cups onto plate
Done :) See how easy that was. I used 6 cups.
I plan on putting another cup in each holder for easy clean up and then kids can take the palettes home with them. I am also going to write each child's name on the plate.
