fun, messy crafts for an 8 year old birthday party?

My girl is turning 8 and we're having her party at the local Michael's. Unfortunately the sales people there haven't been real helpful in terms of making recommendations for what crafts the girls can do; and I'm completely overwhelmed when I look on the Internets. So here's the question: what are some really fun
crafts that can be done in an hour and a half, and are messy? (Because that's the whole point of having it at the store instead of in my house, right. Otherwise I'm wasting that $50.) Is marbling paper fun? Is tye-dying fun? What else haven't I thought of?

I guess these are the parameters:
*the craft should result in something the girls can take home as favors
*it should be able to be done in an hour and a half - no taking home to iron or bake or whatever
*it should require a minimum of adult involvement, because ain't nobody got time for that
Tell me what you crafty stuff you remember doing or that your kids have done that was really fun!
