I liked the idea of noodles, angel hair, rounds, etc and bowls to sort them out.
Or other edidles like toping cupcakes, mostly since my DS still puts evrything in is mouth so edibleis great. But food outside might invite bees outside.
What are you going to use as the stations? Will they stand or sit or both? I was thinking of doing this as my sons second birthday party but can't quite visualize it yet.
I am hosting a messy party for toddlers age 14 mo-5 years old at the end of May.
So far, we have decided to do
*a tarp (staked down with tent stakes) with LOTS of flour and tools such as strainers, measuring cups and sandbox shovels/buckets.
and small toddler pools filled with:
*cooked spaghetti noodles
*cornstarch and water (with food coloring)
I am also going to do
*a table (no chairs) with some paper taped down and finger paints.
*a play tent (staked down)filled with marshmallows.
*2 pools filled with water for washing off
*a slip n'slide
*a octopus sprinkler
*a sand and water table
*2 beach umbrellas for shade
Wondering if anyone has any suggestions for what worked/didn't work for them, and wondering how it went for anyone else who has hosted a messy party?
last august, we had a Messy Party when my DD turned 3. we had: a mud pit (our sandbox, flooded with water!), body painting (tarp, paints, brushes, sponges), Tshirt painting (plain white shirts, fabric paints), a goop pit (flour, oatmeal and water inside our inflatable swimming pool) and then inside, we had our bath tub all ready to go with those cool foam spray soaps (they look like shaving cream, but it's soap) plus all sorts of bath toys to get cleaned up. then we had a pinata. we also made her a piggy cake that had chocolate pudding "mud" and gummy worms in the middle to go along with the messy theme
here's my blog post about the Messy Party.
We had our Messy Party last week. It went pretty well.
We had a tarp with 15-20 pounds of flour and lots of sandbox toys, a playtent filled with marshmallows, tubs filled with spaghetti, corn starch and water, pudding, jell-o and dry oatmeal, 2 wading pools for washing off, a slip n'slide, and a face painting station (with face paint markers).
Cleanup was a bit horrible. But, the kids really did have fun.
The age group was from about 14 months-4 years old.
IMO, the kids would have had JUST as much fun with a sandbox or sand and water table, a slip n' slide, sprinkler, water guns, water balloons, face paint (we had face paint markers and they were a BIG hit) and finger painting with pudding. (This is what we're doing for our next "Less-Messy Party")
Here's some pics from our Messy Party: http://www.onetruemedia.com/shared?p...m_medium=email
someone mentioned slugs and the flour being tough to clean from the yard - what is the most effective way top clean it up - lot of hosing?
