Minecraft Birthday Party Favors

My son recently turned eleven.   I gave him several choices of what we could do and he chose to take friends to Sky Zone (an indoor trampoline park.  If you have one, you MUST go) and then lunch at Pizza Hut.

He chose a Minecraft cake and we hired a friend to make. Her cakes taste awesome and she's got a knack for decorating them. It was fantastic.  Except for the fact that little brother snuck into the cake the night before the party.  Notice the sideways handprint...

Anyway, I put together these Creeper Minecraft themed goody bags for him and his friends.  They were a big hit!

The green bags were from the party section at walmart and I added the creeper faces with Sharpie.  I scored the Minecraft box from Target's toy section. It was nearly empty so I took it and the cashier said I could have the box!  I knew it would be perfect for displaying the party favors, plus we are using it as a bedroom decoration/storage now.

These Minecraft tweener treat bags contained:
  • Glow sticks (Dollar Tree $1 for 5-pack) 
  • Finger lights (Dollar General, $1.50 for a 4-pack) 
  • Jolly Rancher Green flavoring for bottled water (Kroger, $1 for 6-pack) 
  • Cry Baby sour gum (Dollar Tree, $1 for bag of about 25 candies) 
  • Green reusable water bottles (Dollar Tree, $1 each)

If you think your child might like a Minecraft party soon,
be sure to "pin" this post so you can find it later! :)
