DIY Slime Stations
Slime-making is all the rage among kids, and a DIY slime station will undoubtedly be a hit at any party. Set up different stations with various slime ingredients, such as glue, activators, and add-ins like glitter or foam beads. Let the kids mix and customize their own slime creations, fostering their creativity and providing a unique party keepsake.
Personalized Tote Bag Decorating
Encourage children to unleash their artistic talents by providing plain canvas tote bags and fabric markers or paints. Let them decorate their own bags with colorful designs, their names, or favorite characters. These personalized tote bags can double as party favors and give the kids a sense of accomplishment while nurturing their artistic expression.
Create a serene and magical atmosphere by hosting a dreamcatcher-making activity. Provide hoops, yarn, feathers, and beads in various colors. Guide the kids through the process of weaving and embellishing their dreamcatchers. These beautiful creations will not only serve as party decorations but also as cherished keepsakes for the children to hang in their bedrooms.
DIY Foam Masks

Combine creativity with deliciousness by setting up a cupcake decorating station. Provide plain cupcakes, an array of frosting colors, and a selection of toppings like sprinkles, edible glitter, and candies.

Help the children create their unique wind chimes by stringing together their chosen items. The gentle tinkling sounds will remind them of the joyful memories created at the party.
DIY Superhero Capes

This activity encourages imaginative play and empowers children to embrace their inner superheroes.
Popsicle Stick Picture Frames

E.g. Embroidered Felt Bracelet

Granted, to create an embroidered felt bracelet that is as gorgeous as this one by Audrey from Studio Paars is a craft project perhaps for older kids (+ childlike adults like me). However, none said you have to embroider in a regular pattern. And none said you could not add pieces of fabric, toys, beads and buttons either. And smear on some paint and write on it with a marker. Because cool kids can do all this!!! Enjoy!!
Audrey did not give a tutorial for this particular embroidered felt bracelet, but there’s a tutorial on how to make groovy felt bracelets with fun & sunny designs: one with an embroidered/appliqued sun and another with an uber-cute mod flower. Look in the right menu bar of her blog to find the tutorial. Your kids will love crafting with felt, and you will love how this project enhances your kids’ fine motoric skills. And maybe you’ll get their bracelet as a present.
Paint Your Own Pottery
Unleash the little artists’ talents by offering a paint-your-own-pottery activity. Set up a table with unpainted pottery pieces like ceramic mugs or figurines, along with paints and brushes. Let the children explore their artistic skills as they paint and customize their pottery creations. Once dry, the kids can take home their masterpieces as lasting reminders of the party.
