Kids Party Idea: Travel and Transport
Kids Party theme: Travel & Transport
If you just live life, you will find inspiration all around you. My good friend, Ronel, inspired me with a lovely DIY party she designed for her four-year-old son. She found some ideas online and put it together so well, that I just had to share it as this edition's DIY family project. Her boy was super chuffed and all his friends wanted to play with their own “hot air balloon” party packs.
Strings to match your colour scheme +-2m per pack
1 Helium balloon per party pack
Take the paper punch and make four holes in your basket.
Cut four strings and tie them to the basket.
Fill your basket with snacks.
Collect your helium balloons, tie them to the strings and off they go!
Note: Party packs included healthy fruit snacks, low salt biscuits and helicopter oats crunchies.
The empty party packs hovered slightly, instead of balloons taking off and causing tears, so the kids loved playing with it afterwards.
Ronel made use of jets, clouds and aeroplane cutouts to round off the table decor, so it actually looked like the balloons were about to take off into the clouds. Every child got a paper placemat with an aeroplane painted on it.
Helicopter oat crunchies recipe:
2 Cups Oats
1 Cup coconut
3/4 Cup Sugar
1 Cup flour
1/2 Teaspoon Bicarbonate of Soda
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
2 Spoons of golden syrup
1/2 Cup Butter or Margarine
Melt Butter and Syrup
Mix all the dry ingredients
Add melted butter mixture to the dry ingredients
Mix thoroughly using your hands or a wooden spoon
Mould it in the pan, +- 1cm thick
Bake for +- 15 minutes
Cut with a cookie cutter, while it's still hot.
Cool and then decorate if you wish
