The theme for the birthday at the "Børnehave" was the pirat.
The goodie bag is inspired by the DIY from Waterfall creative, I added two pics here to show how I incorporated the image on a A4 sheet and where I taped it on the back and at the bottom.

The foxes goodie bags
Very much inspired by a goodie bag we received at one of my good friends party here in copenhagen, unfortunately I don't know the brand, but basically it's made of a simple creme fabric with cute animal prints.
I used the technique of the freeze paper to paint the foxes

We celebrated our 4-year old's birthday in February, here come some posts related to birthday party goodies :-)
The theme of the birthday with family and friends was the fox. We made those cute little paper foxes for a garland

Well it didn't turn out quite the way I wanted it. I painted the white side of the board with black magnetic paint ( 5 coats!) and then painted it green and white, but I didn't dare give more than one coat of white for fear that the magnetic "effect" would weaken..

Further to my previous post and the great "Costume box" online class, here comes a quick visual tutorial to make in no time a cape for my knight :-)
You will need to fold in half a piece of fabric with the dimensions herebelow
Anne shows how to sew the cape with lining, it looks gorgeous and is actually easier to do than without, because then one has to hem all the sides to give the cape a "finished" look.
In the end I added a button and an elastic as closing mechanism but it could be anything

I just enrolled in my first craftsy class two days ago called "the Costume box" by Anne Weil. It was a fantastic series of explanatory videos to make your own costumes for boys and girls, with a very cheerful teacher who gives tons of tips along the way. I can warmly recommend it, she has plenty of easy to do projects made for the busy moms that we all are :-)
One of the projects I completely fell for was the knight costume, I cooked up a quick little visual tutorial, mainly to make myself some pointers to do it again in the future, but for more detailed explanations you can watch the class for only 10USD, totally worth it.
The idea is to use a piece of soft cardboard (ex: cereal box) dimensions required: 40x9 cm
And cut the following shape out of it:
Then we sew it to a piece of fabric and trim
tip: glue the fabric to the cardboard first so that it stays in place
Then sew the elastic

Love, love, love this website - no time for flash cards - where you can find fun and easy activities to do with your kids by age and a section to teach them the alphabet and the numbers.
We've tried the toddler butterfly craft with the shapes of a train and a car, it was a sucess (^-^)

A friend of mine introduced me to these super cool t-shirts from Boden, I especially liked the one with the dinosaur walking in the streets of London, so here is my quick DIY using freezer paper to make the skyline.
So I used the drawing from Arne Jacobsen
