I stuck with simple crafts for Emma’s birthday party, after considering several much more elaborate options. Luckily, the kids liked them!

Birthday Craft #1
The shapes were mainly there for the boys (Johnny definitely favored them over the jewels), but some of the kids got incredibly creative by combining both! I particularly liked this little bunny face made by one of Emma’s friends:
Easy Craft #2: Decorate Goody Bags
Our other craft was also incredibly simple and a hit: decorate white goody bags with glitter glue! The kids enjoyed this, but the bags weren’t dry at the end of the two-hour party, so I’ll be thinking of something else for the next party. This would work beautifully for a sleepover party!
I had planned some birthday games, but the kids just wanted to play, so I let them.
Do you have a favorite birthday party craft or activity to share? I’m always looking for good ideas, especially that can be done indoors since two of my kids have winter birthdays – and winter in New England is COLD!!!
