Edible playdough

This craft is perfect for little ones who love sticking everything in their mouths. (I'm looking at you, glue-eating Tommy.) This edible, dye-free playdough can be made with ingredients you likely have on hand. Make it before the party and then set out cookie cutters and rolling pins on a craft table. Then the kids can get their dough on!

Marbled eggs

These pretty marbled eggs don't have to be just for Easter. The kids can paint them to match a birthday theme, or turn them into their favourite characters (like red-and-blue for Spider Man). All you need are some eggs, food colouring and shaving cream. You might want to lay out a lot of newspaper—things might get messy!

Cardboard race car

Calling all racers! This is the perfect group activity to keep kids busy (for a while, at least). They can make their own little racecar, and can participate in a race after they're finished making their vehicle.
