In today’s world, geek culture is getting bigger. A fun night out no longer necessarily means drinking and listening to loud music, there are now recreational activities which focus around crafts, painting, knitting board games, trivia and more. Do you know that one new trend that is gaining popularity is collage parties? No, I didn’t make a type-o and mean to write college parties….these are collage parties! Interested in attending one? Here’s what you can expect.
Collage parties can be a great recreational and social activity for children and adults alike. For adults, collage parties can be a great place to meet people and get inspired. Here, groups of men and women might be seated at a table where they are given materials to cut out and place on their own pieces of cardstock and construction paper. Snacks, beverages (sometimes even alcoholic beverages) may be served and music can be played.
Of course, collage parties can be for children as well and make a great idea for a birthday party. If your child is having a birthday soon, a collage party will give her and her friends the opportunity to participate in a private class led by an experienced instructor. The activities of the party may vary according to the child’s age and the venue you choose, but it could also include other arts and crafts activities, story time, food, snacks and more.
