So it’s the big one’s birthday next month. He is turning 7 which I am in complete denial about. In an effort to be prepared and save money I have been picking up some bargains for party bags, hence the theme for this months five under £5.
I normally hate the tat that comes with party bags so try to get things that aren’t going to break after an hour, or annoy anyone in a mile radius by being loud! The badges were reduced to 25p each and the dinosaurs in egg erasers were 50p each. Both from Paperchase. I love that shop.
The finger skateboards were from Poundland and have two in each pack. I’m planning on putting one skateboard in each bag.
The popping candy was also from Poundland and it was 10 packs for £1.
I got the Lego molds for last years party bags where I spent about 24 hours making 120 chocolate Lego man with 2 molds. You know when you think something is a good idea, and then realise it isn’t once you are past the point of no return! Anyway, this year there are only 8 people coming to his party so the chocolate Lego men should be much easier. The molds are available from e-bay for around £2.99 each.
So this year the party bags cost me £15.25 in total (including chocolate for the Lego men) which works out at £1.90 per head. I might get a pack of trading cards or stickers for each one to finish them off, but I’m hoping the boys will like them.
What do you put in your party bags?
