And here it is! The much awaited pics of Goose’s 9th Birthday party. The gorgeous Goose spent a lovely few hours with 5 friends, her two Grandma’s and her Mum (that would be me!) at her ‘Rainbow Crafternoon’….
Goose and I had got everything prepared before the move (which occured 2 days prior, yes I am absolutely insane) and put it in a big box labelled ‘party’ making it much smoother on the day for others to pick it up and run with it. Thanks lovely family for all of your help over that time! It was a lovely, lovely day and I’d highly recommend it for a party theme! Particularly for the 7-12 age group.
We had just moved into the house and most things were still in boxes which meant that we could easily customise the party space as it was a blank canvas! The bookshelf contained everything we needed for each activity and Goose had made pen pots using old tins for a set of supplies for each child for each activity. We purchased an apron in each colour of the rainbow from this online store which each child got to take home.
Goose had made samples of six crafts. Here are the four crafts that we had time to do.
Craft no. 1 No-sew cushions.
Craft no. 2 - Fabric painting on bags.
The bags were also purchased from the same online store as the aprons.
Craft no. 3 - Rainbow clay necklaces
Craft no. 4 - Fabric Covered Hairties
Packing boxes (still unpacked of course!)
make great make-shift snack tables for a snack while crafting.
It was a quiet and pleasant afternoon as there were only 6 girls, my mother and MIL and myself. Then at 6pm the little siblings (who had played at their cousins house all afternoon) arrived along with siblings, cousins, aunts and uncles for a birthday dinner which I’ll tell you about in my next post!
