We had Nolan’s 4th birthday party this weekend. We went with the pirate theme. This was his first party with classmates so that was exciting, though a number of them were out of town (darn summer birthday).
The goodie bags were Target Dollar Spot cups with other Dollar Spot items – glow bracelet, tattoo, mustache, pencil and Mardi Gras beads.
I got the pirate costumes after Halloween last year for around $3 a piece. I planned on them wearing them for this coming Halloween but Nolan’s was a little snug already. I don’t know if it will make it to October. Glad he got to wear it for the party!
I tried a little experiment, I put fake coins, lots of Mardi Gras beads and a couple of $1 bills in the chest. I was thinking that the kids would go for the colorful stuff but both winners chose the $1 bill. I guess kids do see green!
