When it comes to birthday party bags, I try to incorporate the treats with the theme. No one wants more junk in their place, especially more plastic toys. So, I do my best to put together a swag bag that the kids will use while at the party.
Since H wanted a Wild Kratts themed party, I put together canteens, notebooks from Muji, and binoculars. Who doesn't love adventure items? I simply printed out the free printables from PBS Kids' website and glued them onto the canteens and notebooks. I also added feathers, wash tape for accents, and glued Wild Kratt Creature Power pods everywhere.
The kids used their bags to discover animal prints we left throughout the house. The kids drew the prints and guessed what type of animal they discovered.
We have made it to the other side of Henry's fifth birthday, and I can't help but be hopeful that spring is just around the corner. Here in NYC we have had our fair share of snow and ONE big snow day. We bundled up and set out for Gramercy Park. Fingers crossed, flowers will be blooming soon!!!!
