My soon to be six year old has been desperate to make some Invitations for her Birthday Party to hand out before the end of the school term. We (eventually) decided on having a bright and fun summer theme and have everything crossed that it will be on a sunny day and we can host it outside in the garden.
Inspired by a recent blog post I spotted on the fabulous site Funky Time we decided to make some cute Popsicle (Ice Lollys here in the UK) invites. Funky Time have some really fantastic Free Printables and their Popsicles can be downloaded and simply cut out.
Printing out was not an attractive idea for my five year old today as she wanted to do lots of sticking! So we made our own out of scrap paper. We printed the party details on a piece of coloured paper, cut it out in an Ice Lolly shape and stuck it to another Ice Lolly shape with a 1/4 length piece of paper straw stuck between them to make the lolly stick, we then decorated them! They do look particularly cute in Glassine Bags.
