I am planning dd birthday party and I want to start with an art and craft activity to deal with that first half hour or so when kids are arriving and settling and to fill in time before entertainer starts.

DD is having a prince and princess party (again!!) so I thought we could make crowns as it would be suitable for either girls or boys. There will be 30 children.

I have looked on the kidscrafts website and they are charging £1.95 for crown kits so that would be almost £60. I don't mind cutting out templates and sourcing my own supplies, who would be the cheapest for gold/silver thin card and pompom/ feathers/ sequins for 30 crowns.

Dp is laughing about this at work - even birthday parties have to be planned with military precision!

Does this sound like a bargain?

this site has some good art and raft activities. Has some good crowns, not gold but a lot cheaper.

Like the idea of decorating a party bag as well.

By lots I probably mean about 300 , about ten feathers per child.

You can get feathers, stick on pompoms, foam shapes etc from Baker Ross.

Thanks, forgot about baker ross, i might abandon crowns and get them to decorate there own party bags like these

TwinSetAndPearls Tue 02-Aug-05 16:33:31

Or I could do both!!

TwinSetAndPearls Tue 02-Aug-05 16:51:20

What size are your cutouts charlie cat, they could colour them in/ decorate them and attach to party bag.

I may not need to pay for an entertainer at this rate!

charliecat Tue 02-Aug-05 16:51:53

most of them about 5-6 inches big..

TwinSetAndPearls Tue 02-Aug-05 16:58:56

I will check the sizes of the bags and get back to you.

charliecat Tue 02-Aug-05 17:02:53

ok Some are smaller, ill get the tape measure out if needed!

Right have ordered crown templates,
craft smocks and party bags. the bags are 12" by 6" so would the angels, fish, butterflies and snake all fit on. ( not all on one card but so they have a choice!

I am getting excited I love kids parties!

charliecat Tue 02-Aug-05 17:51:24

yes they would, the angels also stand up if you tuck thier wings together too

TwinSetAndPearls Tue 02-Aug-05 21:40:32

charliecat Tue 02-Aug-05 21:41:15
