By some weird and unfortunate coincidence, Little princess happened to be sick on her birthday again this year, with almost exactly the same kind of bug as last year. But she still managed to enjoy her little “party” at daycare, before being rushed home with a sick little man, to have a restful day enjoying her gifts.
I made a rainbow cake, which looks really effective for little effort, and the children and teachers were pretty impressed. I didn’t manage to get any photos at the time, but this is what was left. The layers were (from the bottom up) pink, purple, blue, green, yellow and red. It had white frosting with 2 different kinds of rainbow sprinkles on top, and 4 princess crown candles.
After the cake, each child was given a little triangle favour box. I made 34 of them, and these are the ones left over. I figured it’s better to have too many than not enough, you don’t want to have anyone miss out.
Each little box contained a fabric wrist band and stickers. Each of the 34 wrist bands I made were different, 17 for girls and 17 for boys.
****Giveaway Details: I have decided that I have no use for the 13 favour boxes left over, so if you have a birthday party coming up for a 3/4/5 year old boy or girl, with 13 or less invited, this could be your chance to score some free party favours. I will also add some other bits and pieces to them, because I bought other things to add but was told it is not PC to have those things at daycare, so they are just sitting in my craft room taking up space. All you have to do to enter is leave a comment on this post, I would really like to know if your party has a theme, because I am always looking for new party theme ideas.
Here’s what you will get:
13 favour boxes – 6 boys and 7 girls.
each box will contain:
a handmade fabric wrist band, a puffy sticker, a lollipop, a couple of small bouncy balls, a few of those weird shaped rubber bands that kids seem to love right now, and anything else I can think of, because I can’t remember what I bought.
The giveaway will be open for a week, and if there are multiple entries I will get Little Princess to draw a winner on Sunday 19th June.*******
So, remind me next year to start preparing earlier. The downside to being crafty and creative - you are expected to hand-make everything, and each year must be better than the last. I’m glad that’s over so I can get back to doing things I want to do for a while, until the next birthday.
