Craft Party Treasure Box Review

With new Craft Party kits from Interplay, mums, dads and party organisers have a new and inspirational way to create the coolest party for kids!

Hosting a party to remember is as easy as opening a box with Craft Party and with some great themes to choose from and more ideas in the pipeline, there's a perfect party for everyone. 

Craft party kids are perfect for parties, playdates or get-together's, they're also a fantastic idea for Brownie, Rainbow or other groups where children get together, with plenty in each box to keep up to sic children entertained and the perfect alternative to a party bag - a make your own craft project for the guest to take home with them. 

The Mad About Ponies Party kit is ideal for boys and girls aged 6-9. There's plenty of suggestions for party games and accessories to set the scene plus a Paint your own Pony gift to remember the occasion by.

As part of a fun game the party goers can use their hand crafted masterpieces in a show jumping challenge using the jumps and obstacles that come as part of the set. Ponies and horses are a favourite with this age group so what could be more fun and rewarding than an equine extravaganza to mark a child's very special day. 

The Treasure Box Party is ideal for girls aged 4-7. Girls love to paint and decorate and they adore pretty things too, so why not combine both in one party activity to create their very own treasure box and bracelet. 

Once the heart shaped treasure box is complete then a girl needs something to keep inside it; and this party has it covered with all that's needed to make a gorgeous charm bracelet too. With so much to take home, you could be forgiven for thinking it's everyone's birthday!

These are just the first titles in a collection that will be suitable for both boys and girls; making sure that hosting a child's birthday party is as easy as opening a box!

We were sent a copy of the Treasure Box Party and my daughters couldn't wait to invite a friend around and try it out. It's just a shame my 5yr old daughters birthday isn't until December as it would have been ideal to use for her actual party!

Each box contains;
6 heart boxes
6 pots of paint (3 of each colour)
6 paint brushes
100 self-adhesive jewels for sticking on the boxes
120 beads in 4 different colours (although we had 6)
6 assorted charms (Charms may differ, we had Love, starfish, dolphin, music note, feather and heart)
6 lengths of stretch cord
6 sheets of tissue paper
1 instruction sheet. 

The boxes were easy to use and paint and the instructions were clear. They recommend sticking the jewels on first and then painting around them produced better looking results, but as the children using it were young they preferred to paint in block colours, which meant sticking the jewels on after painting was better. The paint only took a few minutes to dry and whilst they were waiting for the boxes, they made their charm bracelets (this needed a little adult help to tie knots in the cord).

All the children had great fun making their boxes and charms and my 5yr old's friend who came for tea, enjoyed taking her box and bracelet home and proudly showing her mum what she had made. A fantastic idea and is different from the usual party games and party bags. I would definitely use them again, especially as my children are getting older now and I don't want to go down the large party route anymore but smaller more intimate parties with just a few close friends!

We were sent Treasure Box Party for free on the understanding I would write an honest review of what I thought about the product. I recieved no payment and the review is my own honest and unbiased opinion of the product and I retain full editorial control and integrity.
