My little boy loves everything that involves pirates, dragons, and sharks. We incorporated his love for these things into his fourth birthday party.
I try to make the goody bags go along seamlessly with the theme. One of my rules is that the goodies be ones that are fun and enjoyable. No one likes getting a goody bag filled with things that are useless and will go directly into the trash can.
In this goody bag I tried to put only things that went with a pirate and water theme. I put pirate sword bubbles ( Oriental Trading), Lifesavers candies, Hershey’s Treasures, Swedish Fish, Ring Pops, Goldfish crackers, Pirate’s Booty popcorn, pirate pencils, and pirate beach balls (Oriental Trading). We had regular lunch bags that I let the birthday boy and one of his sisters decorate with stickers from Dollar Tree.
Goody bags are a way to extend the fun to each child’s home after the party is over.
We had a science themed birthday party for my two girls whose birthdays are a week apart. For the goody bags, I included Dum Dum lollipops (since we weren’t Dum Dums), a solar system pencil, syringe pens, safety goggles, nose pencil sharpener, brain splat ball, brain eraser, magnifying glass, Bath and Bodyworks antibacterial hand sanitizer, and some eye ball candies. Everyone was so excited to see what they had to take home. I can’t wait to share all the details of our science party soon!
I always love putting together a cute goody bag for the party-goers to enjoy at home. I try to make everything fit with the theme in some way. For this party, I let David paint his hand print on a white bag and when it was dry, I made it into a Spider-Man.
We filled the bag with fun little things. Each bag had a silly straw (Target’s dollar bin), strawberry applesauce pouch and Avenger fruit snacks (both from Kroger), Spider-man gummy, sweet tarts, and a lollipop (Wal-Mart). It also had a container of silly string (Dollar Tree or Target’s dollar bin) which had a label on it that said “Web Blaster”. It was a free printable from Reading Confetti. I also put some Spider-Man stickers and a bug viewer (both from Oriental Trading) in each bag.
Everyone seemed to enjoy their treat to take home.
