    anyone used party boxes for kids at parties and how well did they go down with the kids and what did you put in them???

    i was thinking bread roll sandwhich, crips, raisins or similar, jelly, small bun/biscuit, drink.

    any other ideas. i just cannot face the though of doing trays of lots of food.

    ???

    thanks x

    I think it sounds fab.

    My nephew had a soft play party and the place provided them. Sandwich, sausage roll crisps, cake, drink (cant remember what else :))

    I much prefer them as AJ is a grazer and can keep all of his bits together and pick as and when he wants.

    most soft play or organised parties we've been to do this. usually its a sandwich, a cake, usually some crisps, sausage roll, raisins and a frube! Quite a few have came round with icecream cones too. Then they get a party bag to go home with with sweets and birthday cake in it.

    That's a really good idea!

    I'd be well impressed if I was going to your party ;)

    My friend did this for her daugher's birthday, and the kids loved it! I think they feel special getting their own little box of things just for themselves. Just make sure there is nobody on a special diet like any kids who are veggie etc.

    Lots of the party places sell boxes to match your party theme too.

    I think it's a really good idea. It's an easy way to make sure they've got a variety to eat. I've been at some kids parties where they have helped themselves buffet style and most of them only want the cakes if they are picking it themselves. x

    Thats a fab idea! I shall be stealing/borrowing it! - the bit I hate about parties is spending forever making up loads of different foods and making too much of them all just incase. Boxes could be made all in one go in the morning and then they are done ready to hand out - so much easier!

    I may actually get out of the kitchen at the next party!

    Thats what i thought!! I thought i could even prepare most of it the night before and put in the packets of crips, box of raisins etc and then just make the sandwich fresh in the morning Then like you said, just hand them out and it saves worrying about how much to make or not to make!!!!

    Just another question. Would you do sliced bread sandwiches and just put couple of triangles in or a bread rolll (which are usually quite large!!)??

    Thanks again x
