Fun Family Party Themes That Incorporate Crafts

Occasions when craft parties work well include:

  • St. Valentine's Day
  • St. Patrick's Day
  • Angel Parties
  • Advent "parties" - while not a time for parties per se Jesse tree ornament get-togethers are a fun way of concreting Salvation History and the amazing event of the Incarnation while preparing little hearts for Christmas.

For St. Valentine’s Day your children and their friends could make holders for their Valentines. Then, after the card holders are made, the children can exchange their Valentine’s.

At Christmas crafty-parties the kids could make Christmas cards by cutting up old Christmas cards and using the covers for their cards. Another Christmas crafty-party idea is to make sacrifice chains out of paper.

A Word On Prepping For Your Fun Family Party

The first step of planning a party is choosing the right type of fun family party you want for the occasion. After you've chosen the best party type, write down the things you want to do at the party. You can tweak this agenda later.

Finally, your party needs to have a loose or tight timeline depending on the amount of items in your agenda. Sketch out a timeline that will serve as your guide.

Parties are always more fun when the hosts are organized.

Remember to write down the things you want to get accomplished and write a timeline that you will follow during your party.
