    Hi Alison, I am hoping to have a Gruffalo party for my little one in March and loved your ideas. It sounded like a lot of fun. I am wondering where did you get the activity books, coin money & bendy snakes for party favours? cheers, Alison

    Hi Alison, I am glad you liked my party. There was so much work in this one. I went a little over the top. I am doing Hairy Malary for Blake in two weeks. Wont be as crazy this time!!( or will it!) I made the activity books myself. The front was a picture I liked and added text and printed as matte finish photos. The coins I also made by printing and cutting the little pitures and simply glued them on to the chocolate coins. The bendy pencils came from the reject store.

    I'm having a Gruffalo party for my soon to be 3 year old son. I love these goody bags. Where did you find the print out for the front and what did you include in the goody bags if you don't me asking? I have the print outs for the "mouse droppings", "poisonous warts" and "away snake slid", but would like to include goody bags for the kids as well. Thanks in advance!! Tina R.
