My big girl, kiddo #1 just celebrated her fourth birthday. I adore celebrating my babies on their birthdays and making them feel special. However, birthday parties can quickly get out of control and you can spend hundreds of dollars on decor, favors, cake, activities, etc. I went the DIY route this year and without spending much at all, I think this was one of my favorite kid’s parties to date!
We went with a Sprinkle Party theme and today I am really excited to kick off a Monday mini series of Sprinkle Birthday Party DIYs. Today I am sharing how to make a customized DIY Twister game.
This was such an easy project and took only a quick afternoon to complete. Even though the “Sprinkle” party turned out to be more “polka dots” creating this Twister game added a lot to the party. And I loved that it was in the same colors as all the other decor.
4’x5′ Canvas Drop Cloth (mine was from Home Depot)
Four Acrylic Paint colors + *Textile Medium
Four Paint Brushes
I went the super technical approach and threw caution to the wind with my twister dot layout. I grabbed eight paper plates , created the outer grid and traced them onto the canvas. Then, I drew crosses on each plate to register the center lines and traced the remaining circles onto the canvas.
I then filled in each circle with my different shades of paint.
I also designed a quick Birthday Twister board in Illustrator per the colors of kiddo #1’s party. You can download the file here for your use. I also saved a black and white version that you can fill in with your own color preferences.
I was so happy with how it turned out. A fun pop of color and loads of fun!
I think kiddo #2 just liked doing downward dog.
