The backpacks were a huge hit!! The kids of all ages loved them.
On to the rest of the decorations...
To make the banner I just trimmed down some sheets of construction paper to fit in my printer and printed directly on it. Then I cut out the letters and taped them around a strand of twine. I loved how the construction paper curled a little more than regular paper. I think it gave the banner a little more dimension.
I also made little labels for the mini water bottles. I wanted them to write their name on each one. If I could go back I would just type the name on each, it's much faster!!
We played lots of games and for every game that the children played they earned goodies to take home. Like these pencils and notepads
Stay tuned for part 2 of this party and I will tell you all of the games that we played and other fun activities!
It was so much fun!!
