Arty Party

 Hannah's 9th birthday party was Sunday afternoon.  I really didn't do a good job on pictures because it was a very hands on party for me.  I had 15 little girls that I had to keep busy and contained in the garage.  Since it was an art party and was bound to be messy, I set up tables in the garage.  I was rushing to get the party set up after Mass.  Between chasing Drew around and everything I totally forgot to take "before" pictures.  Drew ended up in toddler "jail" AKA his highchair so I could get stuff done since my equally perfectionist husband suddenly had to rake leaves in the front yard.

It was a simple spread...the ever popular cheese balls, grapes, and a veggie tray.  Juice boxes and a pallet cake too!

These are paint brush rice crispy treats for favors.  Bad pic, because I was rushing.  The paint brushes had red, blue, green, and purple "paint" on them.

These aprons were also favors.

Face painting
 Face painting was first with free painting while they waited their turn.  I had a wonderful mommy help me with this.  I wish I had gotten a picture of all the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Immaculate Hearts of Mary that we painted.  I drew a bunch of samples on a page and let them choose.  Those were the most popular.

Next project was to finish a half drawing.  



Then we did the Blindfolded Masterpiece Game.  Everyone took turns being blindfolded and drew a piece of the picture of Hannah.  For example, someone drew a nose, next an ear.  The girls got quite a kick out of it.  Lots of high pitch squealing.

Then we had snacks, divided into teams, and played Pictionary.  After that was cake time!

Then I got the question.  "Mrs. Smith, are we going to be in the garage the whole time?"  I thought making it to 1 hour and 45 minutes was pretty good to keep them busy enough to stay in the garage.  Present time!

I am so happy that my daughters are so blessed to have such great friends.  Every gift was so thoughtful and she was so grateful for the gifts.  She even got a new pair of fuzzy pajama pants to replace the high water ones she wears constantly.
