|Seriously, a trampoline is good for kids of ALL ages!|
Well this year it was Ethans turn to have a friend party. What do you do with a bunch of tweens?! I was out of my element.
The entertainment was figured out fast by my son...video games and jumping on the trampoline. Easy enough. There was a major "Just Dance" off and I loved it! The kids were so fun!!

I wanted to send the kids home with something BUT was at a loss. Besides candy, what do you give tweens? Something fun but not a budget buster. Here is what I ended up with:
It was an Angry Birds themed party so...
Angry Birds graham crackers (these were $4.69 yikes! and were part of a B3G1F at Target. Some of the items in the deal were juice boxes so I got those for the party)
I found Angry Bird popsicles (otter pop type) in the $1 section! It was perfect and was a nice big filler :)
A fake mustache (.25 at Party Express)
Glasses and nose (.35 each at Party Express)
Rubiks cube (.25 each at Party Express)
The buckets themselves were .99 each. I know I could use bags for much cheaper, but I just like to use something that can be reused over and over. I always love it when my kids bring things home that I can re-use some how.
I made chalk board labels (easy shmeazy!) and added each childs name. The best thing about using chalk? If you spell a childs name wrong, you can just erase it and re-write it! Not that I would know anything about that...
Everything was a hit and the kids loved all the items. I was able to fill those buckets for pretty cheap. Honestly I don't know what I was worried about.
Next up, a birthday party for 5 (3 & 4 years) old boys...
