Wondering what to put in your Frozen party bags? Read on.
In a matter of days in a village hall in Kent, there will be between 30 and 35 children running around being coralled by a woman bearing a remarkable resemblance to Elsa.
For my part I am grateful that it is a joint party since this also means sharing both the costs and the responsibilities of hosting the entire Reception Year of Dimples’ school.
I got invitations, decor and party bags in the Great Division Of Labour. Naturally this has pleased me. And, after many many hours of research online, I am going to share with you my finds for the party bags, all 40 of which are currently boxed and waiting in the Guest Bedroom, in the hopes that it will reduce your workload should you be hosting a similar kids party in the near future. Paying it Forward if you will.
Our invitations came from Design Plug and I recommend them for their prompt and helpful service.
The party bags are standard issue xxx blue bags bought in packs of 12 which I sealed with snowflake stickers I ordered online.
In our Frozen Party Bags are:
A candy cane– sale items from my local supermarket
A self-inking snowflake stamp– come in packs of 6 from an eBay company I have used before called LittleCraftyBugs. They have some splendid craft kits, a lot of which you can buy in packs of 30 so they are very useful for birthday parties.
A Frozen chocolate bar– pack of six sourced in Poundland but I have seen them in Tescos and other supermarkets.
Reindeer Hoof Clappers– best. party. bag. gift. ever. From LittleCraftyBugs again, in packs of 12.
Snowman Pop a Crayon Pen– from Baker Ross which again has some splendid snowman craft supplies that also come in large packs.
All of which works out at less than £2.50 per bag.
With apologies to parents at school who read this blog.
