“Let’s Be Sew Tacky” Party

This year the kids are finally to old enough to where having an organized activity at a party, isn’t just chaos, it’s fun! So I got a little “crafty” with our holiday party and turned it into a “Let’s Be Sew Tacky” party. Get it…?? SEW. TACKY (you know… like glue?!)  I know, I know, bad puns… but with a little twist on the Ugly Sweater party is turned out to be a really GREAT theme! 

I found super inexpensive thermal shirts for all the kids so that each child could make their own “ugly sweater”. 
And then I pulled together tons crafts supplies from my kid’s art drawer, Michaels and the Dollar Store: pom poms, tinsel, glitter, googly eyes, mini presents, christmas trees, gingerbread men, buttons, bows and bells just to name a few.
Laid everything out on a big table and let them go town! 
And what they ended up was Sew Tacky, it was cute!
The kids had a blast making their own sweaters!
And to reward their valiant artistic efforts, I put together a tacky little dessert table laden with yummy treats.
Tacky Sweater Cookies…
Rudolph Cake Balls…
And lots of craft, sewing and holiday themed cake pops…
Then I added in a few delicious cupcakes sprinkled with buttons…
And let the kids go to town!
They devoured the dessert table and had sew, SEW much fun that I think we will probably be doing this again next year. I can’t wait!
