For now I'll give you a glimpse at what we've come up with..
marble (kids like marbles it's just a fact)
small pencil (you know the 80s kind where you can pull the tips out)
eraser (two for one here... leftover from Kid's halloween at school)
7 bead necklace (Kid laid out the patterns and I strung them)
The grand total for 20 gift bags was $15 and that included the cost of the beads.
Kid told me last night that she wanted unicorn cupcakes. Here is the deal some things like that are actually easier not done in miniature. I played around and realized I could build a primitive unicorn off of the number 7 which made it's lack of realism intentional (I'm no dummy).
Take a 7
Add a mane
And a horn
And an ear & a nonpareil for an eye
And you've got a perfectly adequate unicorn.
Kid came in and said "That's not exactly what I had in mind."
I also made gluten free brownies with chocolate buttercream.
I used the new Betty Crocker gluten free mix which I found in my regular grocery store. It was really good. It tasted exactly like the old Gluten Free Pantry mix (which IMO is the best mix around). These were indistinguishable from regular brownies. I froze them as soon as they were cool (I have found that gluten free baked goods dry out really fast). I'm just going to pull the plates out when we leave for the party and they will thaw on the plates in time to serve them.
