I have to admit, I'm feeling pretty genius about this one! My daughter had her first big friend party for her 7th birthday yesterday, and I really struggled with the idea of party favors. The party was already not budget friendly, and I just did not have the cash to do much of anything -- especially for 15 kids. That, and I especially am not a fan of party favor bags filled with candy and cheap plastic toys. Yuck.
So the story on these is that Target usually has these "grow kits" (these are strawberries) in their dollar spot from about Valentine's Day through midsummer. There are usually several varieties, which is really fun. For my daughter, I chose strawberries. My daughter's friends and the parents were very excited to go home and plant their new strawberries!
These actually come in a pretty wide variety. I've also shamrocks, forget me nots and various herbs. The variety makes these really great favors for just about any kind of party. They would even be great for a wedding, and at a $1 a pop, you pretty much can't beat the price. Have fun with this one!
I'm a hard-working, fun loving mom! I work full-time outside the house AND a double "mom shift" at home too. Life is pretty busy with a 7 year old, a 4.5 year old and a 2 year old and a newborn, but we make it work and have fun! I'm committed to the effort of balancing time, expense and health when feeding my family. Most frequently, you'll read about my $50/week grocery project, which I've been doing for over a year now! Over the course of the last 2 years, you can also follow our journey as we tackle a devastating job layoff, a major salary reduction and a big move! Please join me in this crazy experiment called life!
