Plasticine Party review and Give Away

When I was asked if I could do a Plasticine review I thought "definitely" - it would go perfectly with Kira's 8th Birthday but they couldn't get it to me in time.  I thought "oh well I can just invite some of Kira's friends round another day", Thursday morning just as we are about to leave the house to do the school run there was knock at the door and it was a delivery driver. I didn't have a clue what it was until I opened it and I was stunned at how much was in this massive box.  I thought "Oh I will still be able to do it in groups with the kids" but it was only when we got home and had a proper look at it all that I realised we couldn't.  So a quick think and a text later on we had friends coming round for the party, ranging from ages 4-10 with Summer being the youngest and Kacy's friend K being the eldest.

Friday Evening I got everything out of the box I was/am still shocked at how much was in this party box - we had invitations, stickers for the guests with me knowing everyone we didn't use, pass the parcel all wrapped with sweets in each layer and a prize at the end, 4 Plasticine play sets for them to play with, colouring in to do 3 sheets each and 2 other games. As well as the games and Plasticine sets they had party bags and fillers, cups, plates a bowl, napkins and a table cloth everything you need to start you off on our Plasticine party. I managed to rope, Kacy, Kira and Kacy's friend K to help me fill the 12 party bags Friday evening.

Everything you need to start your Plasticine party

The 4 sets we received 
It was party time so while we were waiting for the girl's friends to arrive we got them to start with the colouring in, they did a fantastic job of designing their own cupcakes, didn't quite finish it all so everyone took their pictures home with them. It was a fantastic way of starting the party and in between while we tidied up from pass the parcel.

Colouring in time 
All of the girl's friends had arrived so we gave them 5-10 minutes before we started pass the parcel, which they were so excited about, Summer being the bossy one and telling them that they had to get into a circle.

Pass the Parcel and R won the prize
The children started colouring again while we tidied the paper up, we decided next we would see who could make the longest snake with samples of Plasticine.  We got all the packaging off and made sure everyone's was soft before starting, but instead of spending 10 minutes doing it like it suggested we made it to a race and judged on how they were getting on.  It was great fun, the children loved it - there was some unusually ways of making snakes though, F took lots of little bits and stuck them together, K did something similar, while others rolled it over the table. I even got a measuring tape and we had to measure everyone's snake, K won the snake race.

The Snake Race
We then had a snack of cake - which I don't think touched the sides - before it was time to open the sets and let all of them just play with the Plasticine, the creations they came up with were amazing! The Plasticine was so easy to use, each set came with a little instructions ideas of what you could make and the cupcake mould was so easy to use.  They could mix it together without it going a horrible colour, it didn't fall to bits while moulding it together, all the kids had a brilliant time and absolutely loved playing with it.

The children playing with the Plasticine sets 
I thought I would leave the best pictures for last and that is what they made out of Plasticine.  They all look fantastic, every single one of them have loved having this party and can't wait to get a set each themselves.

Their creations

  2. Can honestly say my girl loved your party. We came home and the gift k won came straight out and they played with it for amother couple of hours. They were also joined by their 10yr old brother who enjoyed it just as much but doesn't want this to be common knowledge (it will ruin his image :-))

  3. We had a great time thank you for inviting us, my little boy was very disappointed that he had to stop playing and leave the Plasticine behind. Great fun and Plasticine is so much better than I remember from my childhood, no longer that horrible smell, it wasn't breaking off into little bits - held together very well and was very easy to mould into shape.
