Yellow moon is your friend here, I have bought loads for my Dds craft party and for my girls throughout the year. They are fab!

Make some salt dough? They can model it. Bake it while they eat then they can paint it.

Get some plant trays/ silver foil and then with a base layer of soil get them each to build a mini shelter, you just need a y-shaped stick each, lots of straight sticks and some bracken/moss for leaves to cover them. Twine too around the key sticks if you want the structure to last till they get home. You can get them to add shells/ pebbles for the garden, maybe even make some wooden fence/ furniture. The finished product is about 10-15 cm tall, perfect for passing fairies, you could even get them to make some fairies with a bead, pipecleaners and some wool wrapped around for clothes. Put them outside while you have the tea and you never know some fairies might leave some fairy dust (or your dh might sprinkle some glitter inside each one).

When I was that age I used to love making "dreams" (like in the BFG!!) by putting things like water, oil, glitter, shells, coloured bits and pieces etc, in a jam jar and shaking it up. I was easily amused though.

Also, stamping is always fun but maybe potato stamping s not sophisticated enough for the youth of today!

hi, have you thought about bracelet making? Alls youll need is some legnths of string or colored ribbon and beads...you could present this activity to the children in individual little bag
Coloring - cheep and effectivesmile cut individual pages from coloring book and put a few crayons/pens out
how about a treasure hunt around the house and the end clue they get a prize each- you can get some good treasure hunt clues from google and can have as many as you want or make it as difficult as you want to prolong the game smile

Hope these suggestions help smile

My daughter turns six on Saturday and she's inviting 6 other girls to a church hall party.

Any ideas for a suitable craft activity out there? I live in the sticks to getting supplies from Hobbycraft out of the question. Can just about rustle up a tube of glitter in my nearest town.

So, perhaps nature mid-summer inspired ideas? Can access a lot of bracken (!) and sheep wool....
