Shopkins! Everywhere Shopkins! A couple years ago I said to my girls, “I will never buy those for you.” “Why?” they would ask. “Because they will just end up in my vacuum. What the heck do you do with them any way?”
Well, I’m eating my words. Shopkins are actually pretty cute and make an inexpensive incentive for whatever I’m trying to bribe my kids to do.
So, here are the details of the Shopkins party. The good news is Shopkins stuff is everywhere so there is no shortage of ideas out there. Check out my Pinterest page. Pinterest is always where a lot of my inspiration comes from. Also, go to the Shopkins World website. They have coloring pages, party stuff you can print up, and not to mention all the names and pictures of all the Shopkins.
Shopkins Bingo y’all was a hit! I found mine on Etsy for a couple of bucks. I think if you just Google “Shopkins Bingo” there may be some free options instead of paying for the pdf files. Once the girls got a bingo they were able to go to the punch board and get their prize, which was a 2 pack of Shopkins. I bought the packs at Walmart for $2.88 each (not my least expensive prize as a whole but the girls went bananas) I found that if your local store doesn’t have them (because they sell out quickly) you can go to Walmart.com they are usually available there and sometimes at a discounted price even.
Punch Board Supplies: Presentation board or large/tall box, plastic cups, tissue paper, hot glue, box cutter.
There are numerous instructions out there with different materials and methods. Do what works for you.
I had so much fun with the favors! Once again tons of ideas out there.
The gumball machines I found at Dollar Tree. YES! I got them for a dollar! The gumballs I found on Walmart.com $7.63 for a 3.3lb. bag of Dubble Bubble.
Shopkins bags were made from paper bags I also found at Dollar Tree. Printed up the tag below and pasted to the bags. I found some Shopkins stickers and let the girls decorate their bags.
Poppycorn! I had to do it. I just loved the idea. I found the popcorn boxes at Party City $.99 for five boxes. I printed up the Shopkins faces below, traced the popcorn boxes on white cardstock so I could get the size of the face, cut and paste. ADORABLE! Then of course add a bag of popcorn.
It’s true what they say, “Once you shop you can’t stop!” Have fun creating your perfect Shopkins party.
