Secrets to Successful Parties

20140201_212654000_iOSFor the past four years, The Art Truck has hosted fun parties for thousands of children of all ages. We wanted to share some of our secrets with you to help you ensure that your child’s party will be a success.

Kids love to make things. Art Truck parties engage children in hands-on activities that encourage them to use their imaginations and experience creative play.

Young party guests may vary in terms of age, skills, and attention span. We create hands-on, open-ended art activities to engage kids of all ability levels. Our parties are designed with a no-tears policy to ensure success for children of all skill levels.

We use exciting supplies for our art parties. We search for and splurge on materials that we know kids will love.

Our art projects use easy-to-follow directions. Our activities follow simple, carefully planned steps.

Parties should have clear start and end times. One adult should be designated as timekeeper.

Kids and their parents attend countless parties. Make yours different by incorporating one element that is unusual or unexpected. One thing you can do is to take and print photos on the spot at a photo shoot party. Kids love to have their pictures taken in our photo booth and see themselves in living color as the photos are printed before their eyes.

Pizza, cake, and cupcakes are perennial birthday party favorites. Consider having kids decorate their own cupcakes or help you decorate the cake. It’s easier than you think and will get kids engaged in a creative activity. They will enjoy their treats more if they decorate them themselves.

Send your guests home with special treats. We stuff our goodie bags with carefully curated art and party supplies. You can save time by setting up a counter with goodies and having kids decorate their bags and then “shop” to fill them.
