Originally my soon to be 7 year old wanted to have her party at home. She picked My Little Pony as her theme. Having a party at home puts me into create mode. I started looking on Pintrest for ideas and buying things as I came across them.
Then she dropped a bombshell on me...she wants her party at the rollerskating ring. WHAT?!?! How could she do that to me? I was already on a roll with tons of ideas planned. I was crushed.
Of course that only lasted until I realized I don't really have to do anything for this party then. I can just make the goody bags, order the cake and go!
One day at Micheal's they where having an awesome clearance sale. They had MLP lunch boxes for under $4.00. I counted out how many girls will be at the party and picked them up. The goodies for inside the box that where under a $1.00 where: MLP stickers, notebook, press on nails, and mini pens. I was able to get other items for under $2.00. Each girl gets one of these. I have to say, I want one for myself!!! They are way too cute and so much fun. I am going to use my Cricut to cut out their names in vinyl and label each one so there is no confusion.
|Front and back of the lunch box.|
|These goodies where about $1.50 each.|
|Found these at Walgreens for $1.50.|
|All these goodies where under $1.00.|
For the boys I am just going to give them candy and a few trinkets. Maybe even a character cup...thinking minions...which I can pick up at the Dollar Tree.
So I am left with the want to do a MLP party and a great Pintrest board of ideas. Have your kids ever done this to you??
