Birthday party week continues! And today is all about celebrating with Minnie and Mickey. First up — favor bags!
We made Minnie and Mickey Mouse bags for each of the kids that came to my daughter’s party. Inexpensive and easy and cute!
Here’s what we did:
- My oldest helped me paint mouse faces on each of the red bags. We used red bags because that was all we could find enough of, but it would be cute to use buckets and chalkboard paint if you found a good deal on them.
- Then I made bows for the girls’ bags by looping ribbon into a bow shape (#2) and tying it in the middle with a skinny ribbon (#3).
- I glued the ribbons on the Minnie bags and then wrote the kids’ names on the faces with a white paint pen.
They other favor I made was a little more involved, but a definite hit at any Minnie or Mickey themed party — mouse ears!
The Suburban Mom has a great tutorial for how to make your own Mickey or Minnie ears! You have to check out her instructions if you are thinking about making them. I basically followed her directions, but took a few short cuts.
