Jay turned five, and after a few years of a relatively low-key celebrations in his pre-school and so the hubs and I had discussed at length, and thought that this would be a good age for him to have a “full-fledged” party with his schoolmates and friends.
The key to a good party? Is to get good people to run it. Haha… And I had some awesome help!
The venue: WowART Studios. The mayhem? 15 five-year-olds, and a multitude of canvases.
Yes! An ART party! We settled on using WowART for his birthday party, after thinking through options such as indoor playgrounds (but he wasn’t keen), and outdoor BBQs (shot down by Mummy), but the clincher was Jay himself – who is a huge fan of doing art!
Working with WowART was a breeze, and they had a variety of art classes for me to choose for the kids. I decided to leave the final decision to them, the experts, and only requested that it was canvas work.
The kids were first introduced to photos of fishes, where the teachers pointed out the lines and spots that made up the fishes, and the canvases were all lined up, each touching the other. I was wondering why there was no spacing in between each canvas – till the teachers got Jay to start on the masterpiece.
Some of the parents were peeking in from outside the classroom, and like me, were pretty impressed by this cool idea.
And finally, each kid had a chance to work on his or her own canvas!
All in all, it was a fun, fun, fun party!
More on the yummy food, cakes and the party packs in the coming days!
