We've done a lot of talking about how to throw an arts and crafts party, but not a lot of talking about specific projects. Like we said, you want crafts that can be complete and ready to go home with your party guests at the end of the day. Don't choose things like painting or glazing plates; they'll need to sit overnight. Try to avoid crafts that the adults will need to finish -- for example anything that would have to go into the oven to dry. You want crafts that won't be too fragile and break, either. Here are a few of our favorites:

  • Homemade bean bags
  • Superhero masks
  • Fairy wands or magic wands
  • Decorated hair clips or barrettes
  • Bedroom door hangers
  • Tooth Fairy jars
  • Margarine tub boats
