Your local craft store is a treasure trove to matching a fun activity to your party theme. We've done a craft for every home party! I love a party favor that does double duty as an activity...from painting ceramic and wood items, to making your own soap, you name it, you can find it for boys and girls. For example, at a recent movie party, (Percy Jackson And The Lightning Thief), boys painted dragons while girls painted mirrors that had unfinished frames. At an ice cream party, I found 3-packs of ceramic ice cream cones and sundaes, put out paint, and let the kids enjoy themselves.
