Scrapbooking is a safe mode of artistic expression, free from bronze-casting’s boiling alloys, woodworking’s slippery knives, and oil painting’s disembodied ears. Help children celebrate the gentler arts with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get a kids’ crafting birthday party at Sooner Scrapbooks (a $60 value).
Sooner Scrapbooks’ crew embellishes the tangible and backs up memories in keepsake form with an aesthetic showcase of scrapbooking parties, classes, and more. A spacious private party room jam-packed with supplies frames each creative klatch as up to 15 juvenile celebrants cut, paste, and giggle their way through two and a half hours of imaginative revelry. Enterprising kids can draft artist-collective manifestos on rainbows of specialty papers emblazoned with sports, western, and school motifs, or dabble in solo expression with pictorial montages punctuated with ink stamps, die-cut shapes, and doodled footnotes. While Sooner Scrapbooks’ event space comes fully outfitted with an entourage of textiles, trimmers, and ornamental embellishments, youngsters may wish to bring along personally meaningful photographs for memento integration, or stave off the starving artist cliché with a stock of finger-fortifying snacks (not included with this Groupon). Post-party, budding assemblers bit by the scrapbooking bug can stock up on a crafty mélange of supplies, including hard-to-find theme paper, albums, and stickers.
