Kids always want to have a themed birthday party these days. Whether you are planning their first birthday or their tenth birthday, planning the party is usually a big deal. Instead of doing the typical themed parties why not think out of the box and create your own?! I came up with a great idea of a painting party for kids. Whether it be painting pottery or canvas’ all kids love to paint and it is a great way for them to express their creativity!
With every party you’ll need food, desserts and goody bags. Now, I’ll let you think of your own food and goody bags but I do have a suggestion for the dessert that plays in with the painting theme. Make homemade rice krispies treats, using this recipe, and dip the top in colored white chocolate. This will give the effect of a used paintbrush which I guarantee the kids will love. Let’s check out this DIY project:
White chocolate chips
Plastic Candy Sticks
- Using Kayla’s handy microwave tips, melt white chocolate chips and coconut oil until it becomes a liquid consistency. Use 1/2 as much coconut oil as chips.
- Add food coloring of your choice. You can have multiple bowls of chocolate to create different colored treats.
- Insert candy sticks into homemade rice krispies and dip into chocolate.
- Allow chocolate to dry, magic shell effect, and serve.
This is a great activity to do with the kids because each child can pick their own colors. I choose to melt the chocolate with coconut oil because its helps to keep the consistency smooth and prevent lumpy chocolate. Also, in the homemade rice krispies I used coconut oil instead of butter in a 1 to 1 ratio and can honestly say my homemade ones taste better than store bought!
