This past weekend we went to a Thomas the Train birthday party for one of Dax’s buddies, and WOW- it was awesome! Not just because it was Thomas (Dax loves Thomas)- but because it was decorated so great! It made my wheels start spinning and I couldn’t help but come up with some ideas for Dax’s birthday/costume/Wizard of Oz party. I started jotting them down and before I knew it, the list was quite long ;)
Today I’m going to share with you my idea for the party favors. Since Dax will be the Tin Man (as of now lol), I wanted the party favors to have.. well, something to do with the tin man. So why not a mini tin man full of goodies?
Here’s what I’m thinking:
Containers: Galvanized tin buckets with red hearts & gingham ribbons
1- Lollipops: a MUST!
2- Wizard of Oz rings: I’d like to do this, and have a certificate of courage rolled inside each one.
3- ‘Over the Rainbow’ Bouncy Balls: Don’t you like my name for them? Dax LOVES bouncy balls of all shapes & colors.
4- Lollipop Drums: Did I say PERFECT?! (And probably my most favorite)
5- Rainbow Crayons: These are just too adorable, and I’m sure the little artists will love them
6- Scarecrow Masks: I thought these could also be worn by the kids when we sing Dax’s birthday song… what do you think?
I also have some runner up items (ok, a LOT of runner up items)- but I’ll show a few of my favorites. Help me decide!
I’m really trying to keep it simple- but with a theme this fun, it’s going to be hard… Stay tuned for some other party ideas that are set in motion- I can’t wait to share them with you!
