what about painting plant pots and putting in some little summer flowers?

Dylon fabric paints (for tshiirts etc) dry v quickly and just need ironing to set. Sounds like a good job for your dh!!!

cooking? they could all make cakes and you could give them each an apron that they could customise with fabric pens. Like here:

We did plaster of paris masks (casts of the kids' faces) for dd1's 9th birthday last year, and was a fantastic success.

It is messy, but very easy and you get quite impressive masks in a fairly short time. But they will need to be dried and finished at home. This didn't seem to be a problem -- we gave the kids some spare bandage to take home with them. You do ideally want a couple of adult helpers, though, depending on how sensible/competent the children are.

If you want proper instructions and a list of materials, I can probably dig it out.

what about those ready made kits of beads, strings etc that they could use to make jewellry with? I used to love them when I was that age. Don't need to leave to dry or cook either.

Get them to draw on their aprons first with fabric pens (no need to leave to dry) then they can cook.

FIMO - a sort of play dough that they can model then bakes in the oven. I then think they can varnish it.

you can get pre-made clay/plaster things, that you can just paint.

There was a basket weaving event on at our local library a few weeks ago - dds loved it. dd1's 7th b'day is coming up, and I thought about 'phoning to see if one of them would come round and help the children make something.

Totally agree that arty/crafty parties are brilliant for this age group. Whatever you choose, I'm sure she'll love it.

frogs, that sounds totally terrifying, but if you do get a chance to dig out the instructions I'd be really grateful.

poster paints for the pots. You can buy pots quite cheaply at the garden centre.

I wouldn't use poster paints, I'd go for acrylics. Poster paints tend to be "dusty" when dry iyswim.
