The real party animals are bound to come out when kids decorate store-bought blowouts with cute paper critters. Borrow our designs or let little artists draw their own. It's a fun way to pass the time while waiting for other guests to arrive. Set out the supplies so kids can start working as soon as they walk in the door.
Photocopy templates at 200 percent, and cut out. Trace onto card stock, cut out, and use a utility knife to cut on dotted lines. Make details from construction paper (use craft punches to make perfect circles) for kids to glue on. Then they can poke blowout through slits.
