Kindergarten Graduation/Summer 'Playdate'

I wanted to start a new tradition with friends from the neighborhood and what better way to start off summer then with a graduation/summer 'playdate'!?
 We had about 12 kids over with their parents for a craft, playdate, and dinner!  I saw this awesome frame idea on the Oriental Trading page here and knew I couldn't pass on these sparkly picture frames!
I painted Elmer's glue onto each picture frame before the kids began.  Then they got to go crazy with glitter!  After the picture frames dried, I painted two coast of mod-lodge over the top to make sure that the glitter stayed put.  While working, each child had a tray and we used a disposable table cloth to make sure the glitter was easily cleaned!
 The day after our kindergarten playdate, I delivered the frames into everyones mailbox. I printed pictures from our Oriental Trading inspired photo booth.
We had so much fun and everyone agreed that this would definitely be a new neighborhood tradition!

  1. Adorable! Where did you get the pretty plastic trays that the kids used to glue the glitter on the frames (and contain the mess)?

  2. Those are from Oriental Trading as well! I use them ALL the time!
