Free Art for Groups

This is an activity from Emma’s low-key birthday party yesterday. It was very simple to set up, and everyone seemed to enjoy it.

We covered our children’s table with butcher paper, set out some crayons, and let the kids draw whatever they wanted. Emma, Johnny, and Emma’s friends seemed to enjoy themselves, and this is an activity I plan to do again – for play dates as well as just for my own two kids.

Emma and Johnny got started before anyone else arrived. They really enjoyed having such a big piece of paper to color together.


Here is the finished product. I think it’s fun to see the personalities of the different kids reflected in the different sections of paper.

    I’m hosting a little playgroup on Tuesday and I might do this for my coffee table; thanks! Hmm, where can I buy butcher paper?

  2. We get our butcher paper from IKEA (in the children’s section), but I think Walmart and several craft stores carry it as well.
