JD's Ball Pit 3rd Birthday Party

If you have read my blog before, you know we love our local My Gym, so what better place to celebrate JD's big day?  I decided on a ball pit theme and ran with it!

The kids enjoyed pizza and juice boxes, and I enjoyed making the Ball Pit Cupcakes and Cereal Bars.

Made just like rice krispie treats but with Trix.

I bagged them and sealed with stickers (which didn't print exactly lined up right, but whatever).

After frosting the cupcakes, I dipped them in candy-covered chocolate balls in the colors of the ball pit.

For favors, I wrapped large playground balls in clear plastic tablecloth that I bought in a huge roll at PartyCity. (Would anybody actually put a clear plastic tablecloth on a table?)  I made circular tags and finished them off with ribbon.

Cutting the circles wasn't as huge of a nightmare as I thought it was going to be because I found an adjustable circle cutter at the craft store.  I used it to make the small circles for the party hats, too.

And then I made 20 of them.  (20 toddlers = the party was NOT at my home)
And of course, we PLAYED!

  3. This is absolutely adorable! How creative! I would never think to do one, big party favor. But it probably cost the same as a bunch of junk in a tiny plastic favor bag! Great idea!

    1. I bought circle sticker labels that work with my home printer and then designed the stickers with the software recommended on the label.
