Now that you've learned how to plan the perfect birthday party, you know you need exciting games and memorable party favors to keep the fun alive. Kelsey, one of our crafty Put Me In The Story team members, found the perfect solution to combine these two with an innovative and inexpensive craft. For those who don't know, punch board games are easy to make and have very simple rules. It's like a fresh new take on a piñata, except it's even better because it's a safe game to play indoors, and it's sure to wow the parents and kids who haven't seen anything like it before. With adult supervision, kids simply line up and (gently) punch through a tissue paper circle to find surprise party favors inside. Easy! Kids love the excitement of finding secret treasures, and parents love knowing that their little ones will stay busy and safe with a fun way to channel their sugar-fueled energy.
