Party Bags for Childrens Birthday Parties

Most new parents would not recognise a modern day party bag. Most of us remember been happy leaving a party with a slice of cake and maybe a balloon. These days expectations are a lot higher. It is not unusual to see children been sent home with gifts such as CD's and games.

Childrens birthday parties have certainly come a long way since the 1980's and a lot of it can be put down to the development of the internet. It is now possible to go online and purchase fabulous party decorations, tableware and even birthday cakes.

If you live a busy lifestyle then the assembly of party bags is something you can probably do without. This is where the internet and the pre filled party bag come into their own. Many companies offer an all in one service. All you have to do is select the party favours and party bag design and they will do the rest. When you are short on time it is a good option.

Making your own going home presents does take a little more time but it also gives you the opportunity to personalise the gift. For example some parents use party boxes and get the birthday boy / girl to decorate each one with glitter and stickers as well as writing the guests name on it. These home made party bags can be as simple or complicated as you like. If you are the creative type and your child enjoys making things then there is no better activity on a rainy day than making the going home presents for your party.

Balloons can also be used to "fill out" a going home present, especially a helium filled one. They are available in all the most popular themes and are relatively cost effective. Purchasing a helium canister can also be very cost effective especially if you have more than one child. It will certainly be cheaper than going to your local garage to get the balloons filled.

As parents arrive to collect their child the last thing you need is confusion over the leaving presents. Make sure you leave them in an obvious place so you are not scrambling around looking for them.

Another option is to turn the collection of the leaving present into a game. Why not have a "lucky dip". Just fill a big cardboard box with old newspapers and mix in the party bags. It will add to the excitement as children leave. You can also start a treasure hunt as the last activity of the party. The treasure will be the party bags. if you do play this game then make sure the children understand that the "treasure" is also their party bag.

There are many element to consider when organising a child's birthday party so make sure you don't forget the going home presents. It will be the last thing a guest remembers about the party. As in so many things in live it is often how a gift is packaged rather than the actual contents that will determine how popular it is.

Children love a good party and especially a party bag full of goodies. For busy parents Pre Filled Party Bags are the perfect time saving option. You can also purchase Childrens Party Supplies online as well
