Recently we had the opportunity to craft with about 100 kids! Boomers, an amazing family fun entertainment venue, opened a water park, Buccaneer Cove and had a party to celebrate! Radio stations, food, give aways and we, The Craft Shack were part of the festivities. Believe it or not, we’re not strangers to crafting with this many kids. I’ve been participating in an annual event with the boys and girls club for the past several years where we craft with about 80-100 kids for an afternoon. The only difference is that this time, I was a solo act. It may have been the fastest 3 hours of my life and seriously about 100 of these super festive pirate and mermaid headbands were being worn by kids and even some of their parents!
Coming up with the craft idea was fun. The water park is called Buccaneer Cove, so was there any other option than pirate theme? With the theme in mind, we offered a few options to Boomers and they choose the headbands. Keeping it hand-made as is our style here at The Craft Shack, we prepared over 100 starter braids out of yarn and sourced some fun beads and feathers to complete the look.
I don’t know what my favorite part is really. I love to talk with people of all ages. I love helping people be creative and crafty. I love watching what they create. I love seeing their happy smile when they finish something. It’s all really a lot of fun and it’s why we do what we do.
So when you need a creative party option, feel free to contact us! And if you want to ride some of the coolest water slides in the OC and hang out for some rides, mini-golf and the arcade, check out Boomers Irvine! Thanks for having us, we had a blast!
