Last week we had an end of summer party, messy-style. The kids invited a few friends to the party. Kids love to get messy and dirty; this party not only allows it, but encourages it! Grab hold of your party hats folks…this post is full of tons Messy Party Ideas!
Since it was sill hot outside, we started our party inside. They
- colored pillowcases. Using permanent markers and fabric markers the kids let their creative juices flow while they colored their new pillowcases.
- made gak. Each of the kids got to pick their color and take home their creation.
- decorated the ice cream cake. All the toppings were laid out and they decided how to decorate it.
- The kids decorated cookies and yes they were able to eat them before supper. Check out the awesome tray I just got from Zak Designs…it’s beautiful, sturdy, and big enough to carry out all the cookie supplies. Love it!
- The centerpiece was a paint can filled with fresh bright flowers and a few paint brushes from the dollar store. Cute!
- The backdrop is an old sheet sprayed with paint give a messy feel to the party.
- The table was covered with a cheap plastic tablecloth…a must for any messy party!
- The place settings are from Zak Designs too. The messy wet paint look is the perfect addition to the party.
- Water bottles were filled with washable paint, then thinned down with water. The kids were given the bottles and a few rules, then they went crazy spraying each other, the backdrop, the playcenter. This was their favorite activity by far.
- Giant bubbles a little plastic swimming pool with string and hula hoops.
- Water balloons.
- The last activity was the water hose and trampoline. It cleaned up the kids and burned off the rest of the energy.
