Brenna was set on an art party for her birthday this year. She loves drawing, painting, coloring, gluing, cutting, and creating. She will spend hours and hours doing all of these things at our kitchen table.

The artist herself!

We started the party by coloring all over the table (white butcher paper as a tableclots) and did this until all of the guests arrived. Each child received an art smocks/aprons found here.
They enjoyed these edible paint brushes (rice crispy treats, frosting, and popsicle sticks).
Brenna was so kind to baby sister who was in the mix!
For our first activity, we went downstairs (to the unfinished basement) for our canvas artwork. I found the cheapest canvases at Michael's with a coupon and the plastic paint pallets here.
This was their favorite part, creating their canvas masterpieces. They all looked forward to hanging them up at home.
We then played "pin the smile on Mona Lisa." I found the poster here and cut out smiles with red construction paper. They loved it!
They squeezed in time for a Brenna sandwich.
It was now time for dinner, with rainbow fruit kabobs and homemade pizza (not pictured).
The last activity was a game of Pictionary. They took turns picking out slips of papers with what to draw. They had fun guessing what their friends were drawing. This was a piano. I think it looks pretty good!
And finally, opening presents plus cake and ice cream.
Each child went home with a paint can as a goody bag. I just went to my local paint store for these. Each guest labeled their own can with sticker labels and a marker (not pictured). They also went home with their painted canvases, smocks, and plastic paint trays.
I can honestly say this was one of my favorite parties to plan because what child doesn't like art? Brenna's dreams came true!
