Recently Kayla has fallen in love with Shopkins. Apparently if you’re in grade school Shopkins are kind of a BIG DEAL. They’re pretty cute, fairly inexpensive, small enough to take a bunch with you somewhere and I am still amazed at the amount of time my child can spend making up stories about them, sorting them, counting them and trading with friends. As soon as Shopkins made their way into our home my wheels started turning and I had a ton of cute Shopkins birthday party favor ideas. Thanks to Moose Toys for partnering with me to share them with you! Here is an easy one – push up pop Shopkins party favors!
I created thesepush up pop Shopkins party favors as a really cute way to give each child a few Shopkins as a surprise. The push up pops I used are pretty easy to find – you can get them here. Each push up pop will hold 2-3 Shopkins inside with some easy homemade or store bought confetti.
We usually make our own confetti using crepe paper streamers. They are very easy to find in most big box or party stores and super inexpensive. You can grab 5 different colors for about $5 and this is an activity your child can partake in. I just lay out a few long strips, one of each color, put them on top of one another, fold them over and start cutting strips. It took me about 2 minutes to clip enough confetti for 4 push up pops. You can either muss up the strips a bit to give them some more dimension and use them as is or you can cut them in half to make them more square shaped like I did. There is no right way to do this, they will turn out looking pretty and colorful no matter what.
I added some confetti to the push up pop and dropped in a Shopkin. Then more confetti and another Shopkin. I jiggled them around a bit to ensure the confetti was covering the Shopkins so they would remain a surprise. The last thing I did was hot glue a Shopkin on top.
I purposely chose very colorful ones and hid some ultra rare “crystal glitz” Shopkins inside because SURPRISE!! It’s way more fun for a child to find those extra hard to find ones when they aren’t necessarily expecting it.
This photo does no justice to the look on Kayla’s face when she pushed that push up pop and confetti and Shopkins went flying! There was a shriek followed by the frantic excitement of identifying her new toys.
If you’re thinking about having a Shopkins party soon you can pin the image below or repin this pin and it will be waiting for you when you’re ready to start decorating and favor making for your party. I also have a some really cute hot air balloon Shopkins party favors – take a look!
