Creative ideas for arts and crafts themed parties run the gamut. Girls in many age groups can make collages, tool with jewelry and beading or create. Tweens and teens are old enough to enjoy a tie-dye party -- go green with organic cotton T-shirts and dyes made from eco-friendly sources such as beets.
Or, get out of the house by taking the party to a local paint-your-own-pottery shop or a craft workshop.
Stick with simple crafts for little kids. Homemade play dough and finger paint projects are easy for young ones to manage. The best part? Partygoers get to go home with their creation.
