Craft & Create Parties
Craft & Create Parties
Childcare is not exploding as I had thought it would, so back to one of my first loves, teaching crafts.
I am now offering a service to birthday parties, mother-daughter days, ladies days, church events, community clubs, scouts, homeschool groups, etc. called Craft & Create Parties. I will come to your location in Warren county and stay for 1-2 hours, teaching your group a simple but enjoyable craft. This is especially great for birthdays/sleepovers as it frees up mom and dad a bit to just enjoy the party, and lets the kids not only be entertained and busy, but allows them to take home a nice favor to keep.
Please book your party TWO WEEKS in advance to give me time to clear my schedule and order supplies.
All fees must be paid up front and are non-refundable unless in the unlikely event that I have to cancel. If an individual must cancel fees will not be returned but event can be rescheduled OR I will gladly deliver crafts and instructions to your door.
Don't need me to teach for you but you still want to make the crafts? For the same price I will deliver your kits to you with complete instructions (this option may not be available on ALL parties).
I will add new crafts choices over time, but for now I have a list of about 8 group activities from which to choose:
Spa Day (ages 8-adult; we will be pouring HOT liquids) Make at least 2 glycerin soaps, a sugar scrub, and a lip balm--2 and 1/2 hours cost: $10
Soap Making 101 (ages 8-adult; pouring HOT liquids) Learn the basics of making glycerin soaps. Color, scent, and mold your own soaps to take home. 2 hours cost:$8
Blending Bar Party (ages 4-adult) You will take pre-made 2 oz. lotion, perfume, body wash, bath crystal and/or other bases and scent and color them to make your very own unique bath and body products. 1 and 1/2 hours. Cost: $10
Bottlecap Bling party (ages 5+) Turn bottlecaps into pretty pendants and necklaces. Each guest makes 2 and gets a ribbon "necklace". Cost: $5 (silver plated ball chain necklaces or ribbon-cording necklaces an additional $1 per guest)

Memory Can Party (ages 8+) Guests will "alter" a new paint can using scrapbooking materials, to be used as a keepsake holder. 1 hour. Cost: $7 each
Brown Bag Album party (ages 8+) Guests will turn a stack of paper bags into a simple album and then embellish it with scrapbooking supplies. 1 hour to 1 and 1/2 hours. Cost: $5
Bath Tub Fun Bucket Party (ages 8+; hot liquids) Kids will make a bath and body paint set, bath tub "jelly", small lotion, body glitter, and soap, and then will put it all in a "bucket" with fun bath accessories. 2 hours Cost: $20 each
As noted above we'll be working often with hot liquids. I will not be held responsible for accidents or spills. Parents or party leaders may need to help supervise if we are working with hot liquids.
Likewise, I am not responsible for damage done due to misuse of products.
When working with children and hot liquids, a small group of 8 or less is preferable, unless there are adequate adult helpers on hand to assist.
You will need to provide adequate space to seat your guests and a good, well-lit work area. Cover your work space with a cloth or waxed paper for easier cleanup.
I have one folding table (which seats about 4) that I will bring upon request.
In the future watch for paper quilling classes, decoupaged wooden initials classes, and soda can tab jewelry classes.
