I wanted to share how I made these Mickey Mouse treat bags for my son’s 1st birthday celebration. I didn’t do a goody bag last year…I had a candy buffet and they filled up chinese takeout boxes to take property. Fortunately they have often been selfish enough to pick the present generating my life simpler and goody bag preparing free of charge! For my son’s 8th birthday we donated what we would have spent on goody bags to the people of Haiti (this was suitable right after the earthquake). A single year for my daughters 10th birthday, I filled bowels with dollar shop crap.
I just popped into the pound retailer and purchased packets of patterned pencils (18 for £1) and packs of colouring pencils (60 for £1) balloons, mini spinning tops (eight for 50p from wilkinsons) and lollies and am placing a pencil, two colouring pencils, a lolly, a balloon, spinning top rated and a piece of cake into a plastic cup! Wrap a ribbon about eight of these tiny sheets, include things like a watercolour palette and paintbrush, and you have a good painting craft. My daughter just turned 4 (1)this year and we had a Princess Party at home & yes i did goody bags.
For what ever reason, my kids appreciate goody bag trinkets far more than the largest star gift from Santa. Each and every kid got his or her personal personalized insulated lunch bag (also from Target) with lunch inside. I have experimented with options to goody bags and found that some are keepers and some are not. I’m 21, and I don’t forget going to birthday parties and not really expecting a goody bag.
Like this year we had a celebration at a location with a time limit, so I just started handing out the bags as a way of indicating that folks had to go. Also back in the days when the celebration guests had been young enough to throw tantrums when they had to leave, the goody bag went a long way toward taking the sting off of leaving. Last year at my daughter’s 6th bday and might we did a tiny flower pot with seeds children (it was $1 at target) and called it a day.
Also, i had a hard time not noticing that the goody bags just produced for a fight and the concentration was not on my daughter and her day. Handful of Jelly beans, two flying saucers, 12 sour sweets, big handful of harbio and guzzle gums mixed then topped with mini marshmallows.
