It's DD's birthday at the end of July and I'm starting to think about her party. Have looked into Jo Jingles etc and it looks expensive. I want to do something a bit more organised now that they are older and hopefully it'll take the pressure off me as i'll be 8months pregnant. I was thinking that something organised would mean that maybe I could get away with doing it after lunch and avoid having to sort out food-just have cake and maybe crisps and dips? All will have their mums with them.....so will this be a bad idea? There will only be 8 children and we can be in the garden (even if it rains we can put the gazebo up)-surley you can get cheap stuff online?
Is this a VERY bad idea? What else could we do instead?
I want to get organised and not leave it til the last min!!!
Just before we moved to France I had a ceramics party for DS1 and his little friends who were all aged 3. They all decorated plates for us to bring to France with us to remember them by and as I recall every child had a fab time, but all were helped by their mums.
Mine wasn't exactly a DIY party a local woman in the area was setting herself up in business so she brought us all the stuff we needed. I think it cost about £10.00 per child. We use those plates every day it was such a great party. So I say go for it 3 isn't too little.
Don't you have to bake the ceramics in a kiln though - how would you do that yourself?
We did it for dd aged 3 at a studio which offers parties for painting pots - it worked really well but hasten to add all children supervised by an adult. some of the children were even younger had some one and two year olds there. Just a bit hairy when they started running past shelves of finished pots and they shook a bit!!
