Sam is at school so I spent some time and got the gift "bags" put together for Sam's friends at her birthday party. Sam helped pick everything out but I thought I would put them together and then she could be surprised too by how they looked at the party.
We started with aquarium nets, bug boxes and marigold growing kits.
The Nitty Gritty!
The nets came from the pet store that we visited a while back. The bug boxes are an amazing value from acorn naturalist. And the growing kits Sam and I found in the dollar section at Target! Love that dollar section!
I wanted to stear clear of the candy, stickers, silly stuff that most kids get at birthday parties and do something that wouldn't cost much more but could inspire some great outdoor play. Hoping the parents don't think I am too crazy!
