Hello Kitty Badges - quick party favors

Today I want to share with you a quick and easy idea to make party favors for kids' parties.

Last weekend I organized a birthday party for my son. His actual birthday is in July, at a time when almost everyone is either on vacation or enjoying the weekends at the beach. The last time I actually hosted a birthday party in July for his school friends, only five attended. After that "disaster", I started postponing the party to September. 


This year we decided on a soccer party at a park near our house and had about twenty boys ready for an afternoon of fun. It was supposed to be all-boys, but on the morning of the party we found out some of the boys were bringing their sisters too. Which meant that I needed to get some girly party favors in a hurry. 

After a short brainstorming session I decided to make Hello Kitty badges with hama beads. My daughter helped me set the beads in place.

Then I ironed them according to instructions and hot glued a pin to the back of each Hello Kitty face.

And I was done. It doesn't get any easier. Here's my daughter wearing hers (yes, we had to make one for her too). 


She's six, so it looks a bit big on her (not that she's worried about it), but the other girls were eight and nine, so it was perfect.

It's an inexpensive and cute party favor idea that I'm sure I'll revisit in the future. 

Happy Tuesday,

  3. Such a cute idea. I was a big Hello Kitty fan when I was young as were my daughters (who are now teens). I may be making a couple of these for them this weekend as a nostalgic surprise. Thanks for sharing at the #ThisIsHowWeRoll Link party.

  4. We've never tried hamma beads yet but I think my 4 year old would be ready to give them a go now. I love how these turned out. Thanks for linking up with #ToddlerApprovedTuesday

    1. Thank you! These would be great for a four year old, though she may need a bit of help in placing the beads.
