For this package you would choose two stations. All stations would be the deluxe package, usually meant for larger parties. Explorers will enjoy 2-3 hours of art party entertainment with an established art educator and artist.
Station 1: Playful Painters: Toddlers and their moms will discover fun with paint and action objects as they drive toy cars, marbles, and Lego's through paint on paper. The combination of movement, action, cause and effect, plus fun changing colors makes this station a big hit! Optional for older kids- a paint with me party exploring mood and music with paint. Custom step by step paintings on canvas could be arranged as well.
Station 2: Squishy and Mushy:Our little ones are developing their senses as fast as a sponge can soak up water! With this station, we enjoy watching our little ones explore play dough with various stamps, cutting and drawing tools, and explore making marks in play-dough or building as they playful explore it’s properties. Older kids would love to explore slime, work with air dry clay, or modeling clay.
Station 3: Builders Delight: Oh the fun of stacking and re-stacking! Toddlers love watching what they make get bigger and better the more they build it up! Sometimes blocks become planes & trains, or jolly giants, and sometimes it is just fun to see what we can make balance as high as we can! A challenge at this station is to see how high we can build with various blocks, Lego's, gears! For older kids- The "Maker Space" box! Included is cardboard, newspaper, wire, paper, beads, and lots of other fun objects to make sculptures and inventions with! As a teacher I would be guiding and advising on how to make their vision come true!
Station 4: Texture and Prints! I know crayons are our favorite go-to material for little ones and parents alike. That’s why I designed this station for any age to sit and relax with crayons and paper. I will supply various materials to put under the paper and use a crayon on top to discover the print that is made when coloring on top of it. Shh! It’s the ultimate “magic” trick! Older kids would love to work with making their own stamps and experimenting with oil pastel scratch art as an alternative!
Jenni Lynn the Clown’s Face Paint! She will be bringing with her face paint to entertain the children with the most elaborate beautiful imagery. In addition, she is a fruit sculpture artist as well and could for an additional cost create fruit sculptures for decoration and consumption, or carve small fruit works for unique live art entertainment.
Yoga, Photography, and STEM activities are add on options as well.
What should party hosts prepare? I suggest to guests they bring a change of clothes, an old over sized shirt to act as a smock or a actual smock for the children. Please provide baby wipes at the tables and a sink for clean up. I will bring containers to store messy things in and clean.
What does the space need? Tables with chairs for all the guests and stations. Room for families to move from one table to the next. If outdoors, a flat ground would be ideal for the tables not to spill when on an angle.
How much does it cost?
Parties at the base package start at $300 for 3 hours and up to 20 kids if you live in 20 minutes of Hackettstown, NJ.
Above and beyond, or customizing for various age levels or materials would cause the pricing to fluctuate.
Jenni Lynn the Clown will also be an additional add on cost of $220.
