We had a arts and crafts party and borrowed a large room at our church. We set up the tables and chairs and had a great party. We bought the little white cigar type cardboard boxes and bought all kinds of stuff to decorate it, wood shapes, stickers, buttons, etc. We do a lot of this with the kids at church so it is second nature for my family. We had games, cake, hot dogs, etc. We topped it off with a pinata outside and it ended at the exact time we planned. If you don't have a church you can borrow, try the recreation centers. Audubon has room that you can rent for couple of hours at a time. Or you could go to a park and use the picnic tables for the craft and they could play at the park also. Ablon Park has a pavillion. You can also reserve those for a fee. Hope this helps.
