Lexi's 6th Birthday Party / Paint Party

We celebrated Lexi's 6th Birthday this past weekend!
Her birthday landed on a Sunday this year so we held her party the Saturday before!
We went with a painting theme and the kids loved it!
We threw a 10:30-12 party and I ended up loving that time frame.. I planned two little crafts and it filled up the time perfectly! I did most of the party setup the night before and then just left the food for the morning of!
Then we had the rest of the day to play and we ended up going swimming and hit up Medieval Times for dinner and both girls LOVED that along with my parents who were able to come in town for the weekend!

Happy Birthday Lexi Lu Lu!!
We sure love you to pieces!

We did two painting crafts:
The 1st one was painting their own puzzle pieces!
It was close to 100 degrees out so after they were done we set those out in the sun and almost all of them were dry before their parents came to pick up!
The second activity we did was painting canvas with squirt guns!
I gave the kids an option to have some quote or saying written on their canvas and named quite a few different things they could use like their name or other cute sayings..
one was beautiful girl and most girls ended up using that one!
We wrote the saying on the canvas with a glue gun and hot glue!
I had picked three paint colors that complimented each other and the theme of the party..
so we went with: Blue, Purple, & Pink
Then found squirt guns that matched each color and filled those with paint and a tid bit of water.
Then the girls squirted their canvas and made their own little artwork!
