artist p invite
There are so many options now when it comes to invitations. In a perfect world we might be able to go paperless here, but kids don’t always understand that. And, hello, my mom can’t turn on a computer so she has to be mailed an invite anyway. That’s why I’m always looking for better alternatives, like invitations printed on recycled paper. This paper is from Green Field Paper Company and it’s called 100% junk mail. The coolest part is that it’s tree free and made from 100% recycled fibers mixed with the junk mail collected by their employees. Love it!

directions:

1. You will need: letter molds (I got mine from Silly Cone), old crayons with the wrappers peeled off, a baking sheet.
2. Break the crayons into small pieces and fit them into the letter mold. Use more crayons than you think, they melt down.
3. With the molds on the baking sheet, put them into a 350ยบ preheated oven for 15 minutes. After the crayons are melted take them out of the oven and let them sit for a minute. Put the molds into the freezer for 15-30 minutes so the crayon letters will harden faster.
4. When the letters are hardened, pop them out carefully. This isn’t as easy as it looks (sometimes the letters break). If a letter breaks you can just remelt that letter in the mold in the oven, refreeze, and try popping it out again.
5. There you go.
6. Bag them up, tie with a cute ribbon, and add an upcycled notebook.

I made 13 sets of these letter alphabets (338 individual letters) for the party. This is a picture of them all layed out on my carpet so that I could see what letters were missing, because like I said, sometimes they break.

artist p room
Don’t want to have a messy painting party at your house? Check out your local community center for great rooms to rent. This one was only $20 per hour, plus a refundable cleaning deposit. Community centers also often have other rooms, like: meeting rooms, pools, and gymnasiums.

etsy notebooks
I bought these upcycled notebooks from Vintage Paper Works on Etsy. They matched the color scheme of the party perfectly–what a great find! Etsy has such a great selection of upcycled notebooks and other upcycled items. Don’t know what upcycling is? It’s the act of creating useful products from waste materials or in other words taking something that is disposable and transforming it into something of greater use and value. For example, these monopoly cards. Perhaps this game was missing pieces and was no longer in use. Instead of throwing the whole thing out, Judy decided to make these property cards into tiny notebooks, giving them a new life. Brilliant!

I think this combo would make such a great present for almost any kid!

This could be used as an on-the-go playdough mat and it has a chalkboard mat on the other side. I found it on Etsy and it’s made by Kate Williams Designs in Kansas City.

Here are two kinds of playdough: Ecodough. It’s an all natural dough made with plant, fruit, and veggie extracts and no chemicals, metals, or artificial dyes. And both the dough and the container are compostable. They also have a gluten/dairy/soy-free dough too if you are concerned about allergies. Made in California.

And Mary’s Softdough It stays good up to one year in it’s container and it’s available in scented, naturally scented, glitter, and glow in the dark. But I love the rainbow tub best. Made in Oregon.

Both companies offer cookie cutters and/or a rolling pin or you could throw in one of these baking sets from IKEA.
