RAINBOW LOOM VALENTINE'S DAY AND BIRTHDAY PARTY IDEAS

With Rainbow Loom jewelry being all the rage in my daughter's age-group, I thought it would be fun to share some easy Valentine's Day and birthday party ideas with you using rainbows, friends, and a little service-project! We decided to spread the love this Valentine's Day and make Rainbow Loom jewelry for children in our area that may not have access to these wildly popular looms.  We invited some friends over, made jewelry, and enjoyed Valentine treats.  Valentine's Day is a perfect time to spread a little love- but actually this idea can be used any time of the year!

Anders Ruff designed the adorable party stationery that I used on the dessert table and for the favor tags. I love the combination of the Rainbow and the hearts.  This collection is perfect for Valentine's Day and also full of inspiration for birthday party ideas!

The girls worked on making bracelets, rings, and necklaces when they first arrived.  When it was time for a break, they were excited to try the FUN-DIP CUPCAKES that I made for them using a recipe from Smart School House.

 

 The FUN-DIP Cupcakes were a BIG, BIG hit!  They loved finding the FUN DIP inside of the cupcake!

I also made melted chocolate pretzel hearts- these have become a family favorite!  I found the candy eyes and mouths at Target and used heart-shaped sprinkles to add a rainbow of color for the noses!

The guests were welcome to take home a cupcake in their little favor boxes or bags.  I made some cupcakes without FUN DIP and used white icing and conversation hearts to dress them up! They were easy to make and made the perfect little take-home gift~

 YOU'RE A RAINBOW OF FUN! THE PERFECT WAY TO CONVEY YOUR THANKS!

The best part and the main purpose of the get-toether was to make and share Rainbow Loom jewelry with others!  We chose to share the love through a program at our church that feeds underprivileged families and homeless- there are 30-40 chidren that come each week. Other ideas would be hospitals, doctors' offices, and maybe even nursing homes.  I think it is important for kids to be a part of helping and spreading love and this party was truly a RAINBOW OF FUN!

The Rainbow Loom theme also makes for great birthday party ideas! You can find the collection of Rainbow-Loom-Inspired party printables at Anders Ruff Custom Designs!
