Art Paint Birthday Party Ideas

This was such a fun party! For Kennedy's 6th birthday she choose an Art Painting party! It was so fun to put together! Luckily there is no shortage of Art Party Ideas because there is so much in every art aisle at the store, but she really wanted hers to focus on paint!

 I got each guest a painting apron &canvas. Then picked a photo online for the to recreate! Made for the perfect painting birthday party favor & they had such a fun time doing it! They couldn't wait to show their parents when they picked them up! It was also great because it was something that took a big chunk of time to focus on!

Paint Party Decor Ideas

Decor wise, the real winner here was THESE printables. They were affordable & all I had to do was print! I could even customize the banner to be Kennedy's name & age. It came with so many different printables, that I didn't even use! It's an instant download that comes right to your email! SO easy! 


I used THESE paint cans on just a craft wooden stick on styrofoam to stand up & used plastic table cloths to look like paint coming out. In hindsight I should have laid out the table cloths the night before to get the creases from the folds out, but oh well!

I rented a children sized table so everyone could sit together while painting!

I use THESE little easels & canvases to put stickers on to write everyone's names! They got to take these home too! 
& draped the aprons over their chairs! {the aprons were sooo cheap, the kids loved wearing them & I could make sure I was sending them back to their parents with clean clothes! Win, win!}

Everyone got paint plates as well, I used these to put paint for everyone. It really contained the mess & since they were so cheap, I just chucked them! {UPDATE 3/2020 the paint plates are now circles, but still do the job for cheap}

The centerpieces were THESE clear paint pails with gumballs in them! & smaller paint cans with the paint brushes in them!

How cute are these cute paint splat placemats I found?! 

If you are thinking about doing an Art Party or Paint Party for your kiddo birthday, do it! Don't be scared! It was NOT at all messy the way I did it & everyone had such a great time. & of course, what matters most is the birthday girl absolutely loved it!
