Kids Craft Party Ideas


Kids Craft Party Ideas - easy decorations, DIY styling, party ideas and party favors for a crafty girls birthday party! by BIrdsParty.com @birdsparty #diycrafts #kidscrafts #craftsparty #craftsbirthdayparty #artscraftsparty #artscraftsbirthday #sewingbirthday #crochetbirthday

Thank you Alex Toys for sponsoring this post.

If you follow the blog, you probably already know how much my little girl loves crafting. She has even started sharing a few of her favorite DIY craft ideas and projects in our Kids' Crafts blog segments! (You can see them all here).

For her birthday last month, we planned a craft party at home with lots of fun DIY stations like sewing, slime-making, and jewelry crafts. She loved this birthday theme so much, and the kids had tons of fun getting creative and crafting together!

Plus, it was a really relaxed and easy party to set up, so I thought I'd re-create some of our party ideas to share with you guys today!

Kids Craft Party Set Up

The beauty of a craft-themed birthday party is that it's ideal for any age group, and is super easy to set up for us parents. We basically had a few manual activities for the kids to try, and a few treats for them to snack while they crafted.

The types of DIY activities you offer at your party will depend on what crafts your child likes to do, the age group and how many kids are invited to your party.  For instance, for older kids or tweens, we can add sewing or crochet activities to the mix. And don't be afraid to involve your kids in the party planning process so they get to choose their favorite projects and craft activities with you!

After my daughter chose her favorite craft activities and projects, all we did was to gather all the craft supplies needed for each, and display them at different tables. The idea is that the kids can then take turns at the different craft tables and craft stations during the party.

But if you choose to have just one main craft activity at your child's birthday party or play date, then I'd go for a craft that will please most kids, and where the crafts they create can perhaps double as party favors too! For instance, my daughter's favorite was the sewing and crochet crafts station.

For today's post, we teamed up with Loopies from Alex Toys to create a fun crochet-inspired craft station. Loopies are really fun craft kits that come with all the supplies the kids need to get creative and customize their very own adorable plush pals. This would be a super fun kids craft activity to set up at any birthday party!

The Loopies pre-sewn plush characters feature a mesh pocket that your child can fill with soft Chenille yarn, then pull out loops using a crochet hook.

Each child can add their own individual style and personalized looks to the plush toys by drawing inspiration from favorite fashion and trend-inspired crafts to create their own unique character features!

Kids Craft Party Decorations

For the party decorations, it was a super simple and inexpensive affair, which is the ideal route for last-minute parties or play dates!

The color scheme I chose for this post was inspired by the Loopies product packaging colors, and I love how it turned out! But of course, you can tailor the colors to suit your child’s taste or party theme.

For the craft table backdrop decor, I simply strung paper honeycomb balls from the ceiling along with ribbon pieces I had at home. I think it really adds a fun, colorful and crafty touch to the party without much effort at all!

For the craft table itself, I covered it with a  pink disposable table runner, which is so practical and adds a pop of color. Then I added foam flowers in my chosen color scheme to decorate it a bit more.

At each place-setting, I included colorful plates, cups and napkins for the kids' snacks.

To finish it off, I personalized the place-settings by gluing foam letters to the drinking straws to match each child's initials. This is something I like to do quite often for kids parties, as it not only looks so cute, but it also helps to set each cup apart!

Kids Craft Party Favors

The kids get to have a lots of fun getting creative and crafty, and they get to take their own crafts or creations home.

Loopies is a perfect example of a craft that kids will love to take home as party favors, which is one less thing for us parents to worry about! ;)
