There's a birthday on the horizon and I like to go all out. But really I need to try harder on the scrimping side of things.
When my eldest was 5 I remember doing personalised party bags. I bought personalised key rings and pencils and each child had something they would love in the bag.
In hindsight, I was probably the most touched by this gesture! And it certainly cost a fortune on top of hiring the playbarn.
So, I need your help. What can I put in these darned obligatory party bags with will be
A) great & please the kids
By cheap I suppose I mean cost effective. I absolutely don't mean dirt cheap crap.
So far I've come up with
1) A fabric party bag with their name sewn on (I've loads of scraps to make these so no cost here)
2) A piece of the home made birthday cake
So, ideas anyone?!
What have you put in party bags that the kids have loved?
