1. Kids started out by decorating the table which had a large paper over it- with crayons and stickers while they waited for other kids to arrive.
2. Then while the kids were each making bracelets and necklaces out of dyed pasta, they took turns blow drying crayons to melt them into an 's' shape for Silas to keep. Note to self: don't over-dry the pasta because they break easy! Mini disaster but, still fun. (The kids LOVED the hair drying).
3. Each of the kids had a canvas to do a portrait which was super fun as well.
