Parties For Little Monsters

March 14, 2016
There’s no two ways about it - kids are greedy party guests. No matter how many snacks and activities you put out, they’ll tear right through them. And then they’ll tear right through your house. Follow these quick and fun party themes to keep those little monsters entertained and your house (relatively) clean!

Arty party

Kids love making art. With colorful snacks, a fun activity and a sweet party favor, art parties are a blast.

Make these adorable cookies inspired by an artist's palette. Simply bake sugar cookies and cut out a small hole to create the palette shape, then frost with white icing and add colorful candy as “paint.”

Build on the art theme with a painting table with a setting for each guest to make their own masterpiece to take home. Supply plenty of paper, a paint palette, brushes and a water bowl (Ziploc® containers work great!).

Fresh, colorful fruit (according to color palette perhaps?) chopped into small pieces is a perfect healthy snack for little artists.

Don’t forget the party favors! Put them together fast by filling Ziploc® snack bags with candy and adding a printable, folded "thank you for coming" label.

Cupcake decorating party

With just a few basic supplies, you can plan a cupcake decorating party kids will love!

Before guests arrive, set the table so each child has a decorating station. Gallon size  Ziploc® bags are perfect to use as decorating bags - just insert a frosting tip and cut the corner to create a snug fit, and little hands will stay nice and clean.

Splash bash

The best way to celebrate the end of summer is to throw a swim party! If you have a pool, great—if not, meet at a public pool or lake or set up a few kiddie pools and sprinklers in your yard. Serve lunch by the water using Ziploc® containers - they’re perfect for keeping sandwiches fresh and dry.

Games are a hit at any party, and a water balloon toss is fun in or out of the water. Fill the balloons before the party and hide them! When the kids seem ready for a swim break, bring them out. (Don’t show all your cards right away—you have to pace little monsters!)

Send the kids home with a perfect little party favor. Fill a Ziploc® snack bag with fish candy and attach a cute printable thank you topper.  Give one to each little swimmer to take home and enjoy later!
