Yesterday I posted about how we had been asked to hold a Twitter Craft Party well the party went well and kicked off at 4pm yesterday on 25 July.
I made and bought a bit of food to blend in with our Fairy and Pirate theme including cakes, biscuits, sandwiches, fruit boats, pizza etc.
. The kids help me make the food and a few ideas were enclosed with our party packs, kindly sent via http://www.evolutioncomps.co.uk/craftparty.
Ryan and Jordanna dressed up for their day and there were approx 8 children I. Total. The craft sets contained enough for six children per box.
. We had Disney music which included the famous pirates of the Caribbean theme tune.
Inside the pirate craft box were craft materials to make six pirate hats and six pirate eye patches plus six treasure chests which the children could paint
The party began at 4pm with guests arriving and drink and food all out and ready. As it was a very nice hot day and far too hot to sit inside, we did a lot of crafts and games outside. I have a big blue ocean messy may which blended well with our pirate theme and great for crafting on (certainly saved my floors from mess)
. Some of the games we played included find the treasure and islands which were lots of fun for all and not too many arguments. Part of our party involved regular updates on twitter via #haveacraftparty during which lots of twitter competitions were also going on.
Overall it was a very enjoyable day for all involved. I was very nervous to start with as never done a twitter party before but it all worked out well in the end.
