Whooooo wants to Paint? Bird and Owl Arts and Crafts

I admit that I can be a bit of an overzealous party planner, and when I have a vision, I run with it!  For Ashlyn and Maddyn's joint Bird and Owl themed birthday party, I decided I needed to incorporate birdhouses in some way.  I took a stroll through Michaels and lo and behold, there are paintable birdhouses for $1!  What a perfect arts and craft activity! 

(All supplies to paint birdhouses can be found at Michaels)
I found these adorable paintable masks at Joann's for $1 each. 
I painted them beforehand, and viola, perfect photo prop for a bird themed party! 
To the right, you can see a basket filled with supplies to make sand art necklaces.

This picture is classic Ashlyn...she is always such a hoot!

Second party outfit!  
Yup, we anticipated her gorgeous party dress getting paint on it and were prepared.  Great news: the crayola paint is definitely washable, and her dresses came clean in the wash!

 Braeden loved making the sand art necklaces. 
He made one for various family members and friends! 

I didn't realize that the sandart kids I purchased at Michaels did not include strings to make them into necklaces, but we improvised and used leftover ribbon from the party decorations.  I think they turned out super cute!

Suffice to say, the arts and crafts table was a hit with the kids and adults alike!
