BFG Dream Jar

13th 06 2017. Posted in Parties by elliekelly

 

We made 185 dream jars at the Fleet Food Festival at the end of May. They were such a hit we ran out before the end of the day!

So many people around the festival who has seen the kids with them came to ask how they were created, so i thought I would do a little video. It’s so easy and I got the idea from photos on pintrest.

We used metalic paint to colour the water and i do think this added to the effect but you can use normal paint or food colour.

If you are planning a BFG party and looking for ideas i would team this craft with making dream catchers as this one doesnt take very long but is a big hit!

How to make Pass the Parcel

When i started in children’s parties over 10 years ago I think it would be fair to say I was not a fan of pass the parcel. So I changed the way we played it to ensure the we didnt have any tears and now  I love watching children play this game.

This is a little video on pass the parcel Ellie Kelly style and you can read more on why I do what I do and why in an old post here .
