Doc McStuffins Party Crafts; Prognosis: Easy

More often than I care to admit, party crafts start out simple enough, but become complicated somewhere along the way. Halfway through any given project, I can be found elbow-deep in some kind of paint, mold or goop, tissue paper in my hair, crying that I glued my fingers to the craft table. It's at that point I always wonder why I didn't just buy some pre-made item and save myself the trouble. In the end, the projects mostly turn out fine, and I vow to choose something easier the next time.

This would explain why I feel like I hit the party crafts jackpot with my recent venture into Doc McStuffins party favors. Not only were the items simple to make, the supplies I used were all found in the discount section of the craft store. And because I have never had a project go so smoothly, I feel the need to share these easy-peasy, budget-friendly items for a Doc McStuffins party.

The (small) Big Book of Boo-Boos was made with a foam notebook kit and some glitter I had on hand. The mini canvas tote bags I used as doctor's bags were on sale 3 for $1. Can you beat that price? A dab of glue was all it took to add a circle cutout of foam, topped with a heart bandage. Headbands were also 3/$1. Add a peel and stick flower and you've got a hair accessory just like Doc McStuffins!

A pair of scisssors, a few straws, crayons and tape are all it takes to turn coloring pages into sstick puppets.

Of all the crafts, the heart bandages were probably the most time-consuming, but only because of the need to unwrap every bandage in the box in order to attach the heart sticker.

If your child is a fan of Doc McStuffins, these crafts are not only great for a birthday party, but easy enough to make for everyday play.
