Isn’t this great inspiration for a boy’s arts and crafts themed birthday party?
The exciting indoor/outdoor splatter, paint and splash playdate party appeals to a broad range of ages, and it’s full of ingenious party planning ideas!
Britni, at Play Party Plan, kicked off the summer with a rainbow of themed goodies at this backyard bash.

A splash-tastic sign welcomes guests and leaves no doubt as to what this party is all about. Inside, a snack table boasts inviting and inspiring decorating ideas.
Vibrant garlands, from Fancy and Fold, are a tasteful way to incorporate a crayon box full of colors, all in one place.
A splatter-painted table runner adds major style to a plain plastic tablecloth and as a bonus, totally camouflages spills.
I can’t say enough about how well plain white serving ware dresses a table and shows off party treats, especially at events full of lots of cheery colors.
A little innovation easily transforms traditional, kid-friendly foods into exiting themed menu items.
A cookie cutter shapes PB&J into “Splatter Sandwiches”, and color-coordinating cupcake liners create a bright palette of individual servings of fruit.
Delightful paint bucket canisters serve sweet treats; paint splatter cake pops, by Niecey’s Sweets, and paintbrush Rice Krispies Treats, by Sweet U Off Your Feet, stand upright in color-coordinated candies.
Tiny artist easels holding the printable menu cards are a great accent.
At an outdoor juice bar, party guests “splash” flavors together to create their own special drink.
Instead of cups,Britni added chalkboard labels to small plastic bottles. Guests loved personalizing their drinks with sidewalk chalk.
A cloth tablecloth and fabric bunting, mason jar beverage dispensers, and an aluminum tiered serving tray give the table a cute and casual backyard look.
Bottled water and more juice boxes are iced in an aluminum tub nearby.
Energized by a light lunch, partygoers enthusiastically began the fun (and “shhh” educational) games that Britni planned.
Guests competed to build the tallest tower in Juice Box Jenga, identified letters while playing Splash Ball in darling aprons (from Confetti Couture Events), and created an awesome piece of art while learning colors at the “Splatter Station”.
Partygoers of every age thoroughly enjoyed watching and participating in the creative party activities.
While the paint dried, little artists headed inside for a new cookie decorating idea: guests used food-safe markers to create works of art on picture frame cookies.
After a full afternoon of fantastic food and fun, guests took home favor bags filled with splatter and splash supplies.
Bags included their choice of My First Crayola Crayons, Color Wonder Overwraps, or Crayola Sidewalk Chalk; as well as crayon gummies, squirt guns, bouncy balls, sunglasses, and keychain-sized bottles of sunscreen.
This bold and busy playdate party is full of creative ideas for planning your own splatter paint and splash bash, or even just a cool way to spend a summer afternoon.
