My daughter’s birthday was this past weekend, I have been planning her party for quite some time. Last year we had a Princess Tea Party, I wanted to do something different. I finally came up with a DIY Crafty Birthday Party. A fun party with different activities for the kids to keep busy with.
Over the past month, I had slowly been preparing for the party. I spent hours on Pinterest, pinning to my board Birthday Ideas for Kids. I finally found some DIY projects to create the perfect DIY Crafty Birthday party.

I decided to make a paint splatter cake with homemade fondant and buttercream. I had never made fondant or Butter Cream before and had no idea how to make it. The recipe I used was simple and easy to make, my daughter loved them both. I wasn’t able to put as many paint splatters on the cake as wanted, due to pain in my hands. I did what I could and it turned out great.
This year I printed off some invites for my daughter to take to school on the last day. We handed out about 8 invites, with an RSVP for August 10. We had not received any notification that any of her school friends would be attending. I explained to my daughter that it was summer and that sometimes families are busy, so the kids may not come. She was fine with that. We had 4 kids and they all had a blast. (none from her class) I just wish that parents would RSVP so that the parents who are planning a party can make the proper arrangements.
