I used Michaels' coupons in the next several weeks to keep the costs low and I asked for a small donation per child for art supplies. I made a few ornaments myself and I had my 9 year old make a few practice ones so I could see how everything would play out.
Then the big day arrived! I was actually pretty well prepared and was all set to go three hours early! I had four third graders and six first graders. All of the girls were super sweet and super excited about the event.

I printed off snowflake drawing pages for the girls to color as everyone was arriving. The wood table you see in the photos is the table that lives in our art room. I borrowed a longer folding table from my friend for the other table. I put the four third graders at the art room table and the six first graders at the folding table.
