7 year old easy craft party ideas?

Oh look, it's broadly a place to talk about special occasions, party tips and to swap present ideas but let's be perfectly honest, this forum is here because I want to get excited about CHRIIIIIISTMAS from about June onwards.

7 year old easy craft party ideas?

Postby mindy » 30 Aug 2015, 15:14

Roo wants a craft party for her birthday. I don't have much space at home, and definitely not much time as Small Boy is only 10 weeks old and Min will be on short days in reception that week.

There will be 9 children all together, I thought we could make a felt flower brooch by gluing 2 flowers together and a contrasting button in the middle. Do you think I should pre-cut the flowers, or let them do it themselves?

Also, do you have any other ideas for one other quick craft? It's going to be a vaguely retro tea party theme with bunting and flowers, and traditional party games such as pass the parcel and musical bumps.

Am feeling a bit anxious about it really!

Thanks for any suggestions.

How about you pre cut some shapes then thems that want to cut their own can and those that want pre cut can have.

Could they make some bunting themselves, either one piece as a flag or 3 maybe to look like bunting. Give them some felt shapes, sequins etc to stick on

I needed an activity to entertain 4 girls - aged from 5 - 14. I bought each one a 3d cardboard initial from Hobbycraft and some decoupage paper and left them to it! They all thoroughly enjoyed it and took paper home to finish if needed. You can get the stuff cheaper at larger Tescos too - or poss online.

What about decorating cupcakes? Sort of craft project and birthday cake rolled into one.

woolen friendship braids seems to be a good idea
