Patrick’s turning 3 years old this Sunday, and since this is the first time he’s ever had friends (a.k.a classmates), I decided to make some goodie bags for them.
I don’t want to spend too much, but doesn’t want to fill the bags with too much cheap sweets too. So I ended up with these items:
- Medium size colorful bags. $3 for 6. (it was 50% off).
- Small plastic cups. $2 for 6. (it was 50% off).
- A small book of alphabets stickers. $0.75 for about 15 pages of stickers.
- A big box of crayons. $2 for a box of 64. (it was 50% off).
- A bag of balloons. $3 for a bag of 100.
- Paddle ball. $7 for 10.
- Bubbles. $4 for 8. (it was 50% off).
- Clear plastic bag. $2 for 30.
- Petiteville Paper Farm coloring pages. $7 for a file of 10 pages. I just need my printer to print out as many copies as I need. Will explain later about this.
I also add single bags of cookies and fruit snacks into each goodie bag. These I already have in the pantry.
Assembly is pretty easy. I just put bubbles, crayons (6 each), balloons (5 each) and sticker inside the cup, and arrange the rest inside the bag.
Petiteville Paper Farm is a coloring page I found on etsy.com. If you grew up in the 80s then you might remember playing with paper dolls. This is the same. The set comes with a farmer, 4 animals, a barn, a tractor, and a base. It’s actually colored but I asked the shop owner if she’s willing to make it non-colored. I just think it’ll be fun for the kids to be able to color the animals, barn, tractor and farmer before they play with it.

Now I just need to bake some cupcakes (carrots cupcakes with cream cheese frosting, and sprinkles, of course!) and buy some apple juice. Let’s party!
