71  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Re: End of the year Kids Party on: June 19, 2006 09:31:19 AM
Are you able to go outside or have double sinks in this room?  Maybe go for a tie-dye shindig, teach 'em how to tie the shirts into the various patterns (you can find instructions, just google it). 

Or if there are pictures of the girls from the class maybe you could make some 6x6 scrapbooks.  All you need are the albums (there are cheapie versions that are great for kids), paper, so me stickers or other embellishments and some adhesive.

Hope this helps.

21 views and no ideas?  I read about a beadwork crafting circle that would give every member a certain item that they had to create with, some were funny like a stuffed llama or rubber ducky, others were more plain like wooden photo frames and cigar boxes.  I've planned a couple of sort-of mini classes were I demostrated a technique and we each created from there in our chosen craft (however at these it was mostly paper crafters).  Or you could have a charity project shindig with the crafted item of the night being something that could be donated to charity, like blankets, prayer shawls or something of the sort that everyone can try their hand at.  Or maybe just pick a charity and everyone do a craft related to the charity's purpose, ebay 'em and donate the profits.  

As for foods, if you're going with the charity idea...let's say American cancer society...do all the food pink and maybe something ribbon shaped (cake?  arrangement of veggie rolls?)   If you do something like cigar box craft night maybe you could eat some traditional cuban food.

Hope this helps.  Who knows maybe now that someone else has posted the rest will come out of the woodwork.
73  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Legend of Zelda Party*now with pictures on: June 02, 2006 01:25:36 PM
So my Link-obsessed soon-to-be four year old has insisted that he needs to have a "link party" and nothing else will do.  However, other than revamping his link costume, making appropriate headgear, Wind waker Link and logo on his cake, and hunting for rubies like they were easter eggs--I'm at a loss.  Can any of you crafty chicas think of anything else 2-10 year olds can play (not everyone has to do everything) that is Zelda related?  I did think about make swords and shields for everyone but I couldn't think of some sort of reason for them nor am I sure it's a good idea to hand the younger ones pointy objects.  Please help!!  No idea too weird, I'm desperate!

Okay so no one had any ideas but we made due with whatever my brain could muster.  My son loved his party and I can up with some things for them to do (some worked, some just got ditched because it was like 100 degrees and windy).
Here's his cake (first attempt at frozen buttercream transfer)


His costume, that he didn't wear because it was too too hot.


I set up some archery (or bones and arrows as my dear boy says) and slingshot targets with things from the games--we ditched the whole hunt for rupies they started to blow away in the wind.


And the birthday boy...never without a sword down the back of his shirt "like link mom"


Good fun.
