Easy Party Planning Tips for a Rainbow Birthday Party

Planning a party for kids is exciting and something to look forward to; however, at times it can quickly become a big production and put a lot of stress on moms and dads. Today we want to help you with a couple quick ideas on how to put on a beautiful and enjoyable rainbow birthday party for kids (and hopefully a little more stress free).

Create Your Own Personalized Pencil Pouch

I LOVE art supplies. I can’t get enough of them. As you can see from my Instagram page, the only thing I love more than art supplies is rainbows. When it comes to taking my art supplies on the go, it’s important for me to have a carrying case that’s not too big or too small, but something just right. Something Goldilocks would approve of. I really didn’t think such a case existed until I saw the OOLY Mighty Pouch. I can’t believe how much I can fit into this expandable case. I’m often taking supplies on the go for both myself and my 6-year-old so this pouch works great for both of us. You can even fit a mini iPad inside! While I love the bright colors that the Mighty Pouch comes in, I thought it would be fun to create a personalized pencil pouch and make it more my own. Below are a few ways to personalize your own Mighty Pouch!

Kids Creative Journals

Our daughter is in a constant mode of creating. She loves to knit and sew and seems to be in an endless loop of sketching, planning, and making fabric store shopping lists. She has several projects in various stages going on at once — all of which creates a lot of fantastic creative mess. Using Color-Pop and Pocket Pal notebooks as creative journals have been such a great way for my daughter to focus her energy and work through her creative process. I could see any kiddo using them for whatever creative projects they’ve got in the works: LEGO designs, story writing, nature sketching. Journals are an excellent tool for kids’ imaginations!

How to Create an Art and Crafting Space for Kids
