Arts & Crafts Birthday Parties in Fairfield County

Arts and Craft Parties for Boys and Girls in Fairfield County, CT

Whether your kid bedazzles like a future Betsey Johnson or just likes to make a mess with paint, glue or glitter, there's an artistic option out there for his or her next birthday party.  Yes, I said his.  Pottery is obviously gender-neutral, but even some of the others on our list consider the fact that boys have a right-brain, too.  Add in the fact that arts & crafts-based parties have built-in party favors, and something to focus that boundless energy on... just add cake and WHA-LAH!! For more fun party ideas check out our Party Guide! Here's some fun in Fairfield County.

Sew Create and Celebrate, Norwalk
Remember when it took you three weeks to make that pillow in Home Ec class? Your birthday child and friends will have it sewn up in two hours!  If sewing isn't his/her bag, what about beading, knitting, embroidery, plastercraft, or stuffing animals (like that store at the mall that shall remain nameless)?  They allow revelers as young as three.  (You can also throw in pizza or sundaes for $5/each).  During onsite parties, parents are encouraged to skedaddle off to cutesy Silvermine to kill time ... or else pay to party!

5 Guild Dr. Norwalk, CT 06850  203-847-2561

Michael's, Milford and Stamford
They've got a big box store at their disposal, yet they keep it nice and simple.  When you book your party, they tailor a craft to both your child's interests and your budget.  Someone will be there to do the craft with your birthday child and guests, then the rest of the two hours you can use for cake and presents.

Sports Center of Connecticut Glitter Party, Shelton
Don't let the name fool you!!  They've got almost as many projects designed for boys as they do for girls -- rocket ships, race cars, airplanes, etc.  It's a 90-minute party for the first 8 participants.  That includes pizza, party invites, and paper products -- you provide the cake.

Then there are the un-italicized pottery spots.  Kids won't mold the clay here, but rather creatively paint their own piece of ceramics, and it cuts the price in half.  One also offers a beading party option.
