It's DDs birthday soon and she doesn't get a party every year. She's requested a theme and a cake along with some traditional party games. I'd imagine that all of this would probably take about an hour. Would love some more ideas for an activity or craft activity to do with that age group. Some siblings may come that will be older up to the age of 6.

I tried this at DD's party (she was 5, and most of the guests about this age). I drew fairies from stencils on each of paper gift bags (which became their lolly bags), and had heaps of stuff for them to decorate with - paints and crafty stuff. Took about 10 minutes and they were bored and asking for games, I thought it would take ages. Aged 3 might be better as they expect less from a party, and would be happy with crafting? At that age I'd not make it too complicated, and just let them go for it with heaps of different materials.
Best of luck!

I think in that case I might avoid the whole craft thing - their attention spans won't be super huge at that age!

For our 3yr old's party we didn't have any set activities. Just had various toys out - duplo, toy golf clubs, balls, trikes/ride-on toys etc. Had some books & paper & textas out too. Stickers were a huge hit.
The kids ran around like crazy from one thing to the next & really didn't stay still at all.

The craft that holds the attention of a group of 3yos longest at our playgroup is a batch of homemade playdough and a variety of plastic implements to attack it with (cookie cutters, plastic scissors, rolling pins etc). You will need a low table though and little bits end up squashed on the floor. You could send a clump home with them in a snap lock bag afterwards.
Or another thing they will probably love is if you baked a batch of biscuits cut out with cookie cutters into a variety of shapes. Let them decorate themselves with icing, icing pens, dried fruit lollies, sprinkles etc. Makes lots of mess but they do love it. There will be at least one kid that stands there licking icing and eating lollies though so decide if this matters and how much supervising you feel like doing.
