{Rainbow Camp} Arts & Crafts Birthday Party

{Rainbow Camp} Arts & Crafts Birthday Party

Rainbow art parties are such fun party themes & I LOVE the camping twist that Melissa of Buckets of Grace incorporated into her {Rainbow Camp} Arts and Crafts Birthday Party! With a trail-mix making station, great crafting activities and personalized party favor craft caddies, these little campers were able to let their creativity flow!

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Dessert table with big rainbow paper rosette backdrop & “Camp Grace” rainbow letters
– Rainbow striped cake with a tent and painter’s palette topper & mini bunting
– Washi tape wrapped spoons for chocolate s’mores cakes in jars
– “Mix Your Own Trail Mix” Station + Rainbow colored noodle jewelry making station
– Crafty personalized party favor caddies with markers, crayons, and colored pencils

PARTY DETAILS, as told by Melissa
;

Like most 9 year old girls, my daughter Grace loves all things arts and crafts. So when picking the theme for her birthday this year, I wasn’t surprised when she asked for an arts and crafts birthday party. To put a little twist on the traditional theme, we turned her party into a Camp Arts and Crafts Party. We used a rainbow color scheme with lots of camp touches, including burlap, kraft paper and touches of nature. Carli from Dimple Prints made the customized printables that tied the party together. They were amazing!

For the backdrop for the sweets table and the trail mix bar, we stuck with our rainbow arts and crafts theme by making ombre paper pinwheels for the sweets table and paper chains for the trail mix bar.

We had lots of arts and crafts activities for our campers. We dyed sailor bracelets, painted canvases, made noodle necklaces and bracelets, made God’s Eyes, had sand art. My daughter decided that instead of having her campers bring presents, she wanted to collect donations for Project Linus – a non-profit organization that collects blankets for children in need. As one of the arts and crafts projects, we made a fleece tie blanket to donate on behalf of her party. It was such a touching activity!
