With the rise in Zoom, Skype, Facetime, and other video platform calls, we can’t help but wonder: Is there any way to make a virtual call with your loved ones a little more exciting? We don’t think you need a reason to throw a party, but we do believe this would be a great get-together for birthdays or almost any other occasion. The best part is that people of all ages can enjoy this kind of activity and each party can be adjusted depending on age.
Depending on the number of people you plan to “invite,” you will need to get all supplies ahead of time and make sure to ship them to your guests.
After you decide how many people you want to invite, it’s time to choose what image you want to recreate. For younger children, perhaps you want to go with a beloved cartoon character, and you may want to stencil an outline of the image on each canvas beforehand. Other options may be a favorite landscape or having everyone paint their family pet. We recommend including this in the box or emailing it to the party-goers ahead of time.
The following items will need to be purchased:
- Boxes: In order to ship everything ahead of time to your guests, you will need to purchase boxes. These boxes have different sizes available.
- Canvases: Your canvas choice will most likely depend on the image you want to recreate, as well as your budget (sizes vary!). These canvases allow you to purchase 12 at a time for $12.99.
- Brushes: This brush set allows you to purchase 6 sets of brushes for under $12, which is a good deal!
- Paints: This will possibly depend on what image you are trying to recreate but you could also purchase mini acrylic paint sets like this, so your guests have all colors at hand.
We recommend you purchase the art supplies at your preferred provider, although we have provided hyperlinks to some easy deals we found.
Once everything is shipped, set up a time for your virtual party and you are good to go!
