Being a kid with a birthday at the end of the school holidays has disadvantages for sure. Just get that shiny new bike….and back to school!
An advantage of having a birthday right at the end of the school holidays is plenty of time to think about party bags.
My daughter loves making things, and I have a frugal Eco-soul so we put this together and behold….the elements of our hand-made party bag:
made from newspaper, drawn-on office paper, wild Australian flower seeds and paper daisy seeds. Simple to do, especially following these instructions at graciousrain. (I used a soil sieve that I already had instead of making my own paper frame).
We accidentally made a textured paper because of the tea-towel we used to dry it on, but it looks sort of like an intentional design? 😉
made from broken crayon bits (seen on Playschool). Simple.
Made from waste cardboard from my secret source and this tutorial at Minieco.
Hand-stamped paper bags:
We ran out of time to include home-made chocolates and some hemp bracelets but will keep those ideas for next year!! 😉
