Cre-EIGHT-ivity!

Posted on: July 27, 2011

So you missed another one of the kids’ birthdays. We forgive you :p

This year Rocio wanted to celebrate her 8th with just a small group of friends at Creative Kids Studio. Creative Kids was started by fellow Alabanger Bambi Manosa in her home. She and her crew have been teaching kids of all ages how to employ all kinds of artistic media from drawing to papier mache to painting to doodling. It’s always fun because the emphasis is on the experience more than the end product.

Very recently, Creative Kids moved out of Bambi’s house and into Alabang Town Center. It’s so new at that location, Rocio’s was the first party to ever be held there.

Since the party came right at the heels of my bout with dengue fever, I left it all up to the folks at Creative Kids to plan the party. I just told them my girl loves Taylor Swift and wants to do lots of art.

Here’s what they came up with…

The Arty Party from the outside.


And the Arty Party from the inside.

They had three activities to do in the span of two hours. The first was the mirror mural. They each got to choose a figure to paint anyway they wanted.


Next, they were ushered into this room…

Yes, that says “Jackson Pollock Splatter Room”.

They danced to Taylor Swift tunes while coloring their canvas a bright yellow.


And while they were in the splatter room, the bigger guests got a chance at…

some therapy!!


Oh and were were thinking of you and how to make you gnash your teeth because of more family fun missed…


The next activity was embellishing the “stuff box”. Looks like a lunch box but obviously its uses are limited only by the user.

And when that was done it was back to the splatter room for the real fun.


Then (after a considerable time getting everyone wiped down and clean!) it was cake time!

confetti!


picking out the confetti piece by piece = not fun

It was a wonderful afternoon. So much better than those parties with a host’s voice blaring over loud speakers and kids aren’t really creating anything. Wish you could’ve been there.

Some parting shots…

Looked like so much fun! Thanks for stressing the obvious and painful fact that I was not there! Good job on the party idea. So much more intimate and productive.

First time here!
Belated happy birthday to your girl!
This is a cool party, what a great place w/ fun activities!
Those pom-poms are getting more popular now at parties…goodbye balloons šŸ™‚
