Here is an Kids Art Party full of creativity and a fabulously fun time. Mom Julie Greene put together a dessert buffet along with art stations to keep 10 preschoolers entertained. As a backdrop for the dessert buffet, Julie used framed artwork created by the birthday boy.
Julie says, “I splashed melted colored frosting onto sugar cookies to create a Jackson Pollock effect, which I called ‘modern art,’ spread half chocolate and half vanilla frosting onto more sugar cookies to create ‘black and white’ art, spread vanilla frosting and covered it with small round sprinkles for my ‘pointillism’ cookies, and lastly placed an edible image of the birthday boy onto frosted cookies to create a ‘self portrait.'”
The art themes and signs for these cookies are so creative! The pointillism cookies crack me up. Seurat missed the boat. He should have used sprinkles. 🙂
The birthday cake had a cute chunky paintbrush. The birthday boy got to use food coloring markers to personalize his cake.
Julie put together 4 art stations for the party including crayon making, painting a canvas, sand art and play dough. According to Julie, the little ones really loved painting a canvas. She says, “Most of the children really took their time at this station and created beautiful little masterpieces.”

miniature canvas frames
If you have an art party with lots of kids and decide to use stretched canvas frames for artwork, they can be expensive. How about using plain pizza boxes as the “canvas” for kids art work?
Depending on the size they are about .50 cents each!!
Perfect idea for teachers!
