Last weekend we celebrated Buzz’s 6th birthday with a big Despicable Me themed bash.  It was a blast!  We came up with three different games, some great dollar store decor, and some SUPER fun (and less than typical!) party favors.  And, in true Dollar Store Crafts fashion, everything was done on the cheap!  17 kids, 20 t-shirts, 18 squirt guns, 2 fun games, and some paper party decor — not counting cake and snacks, we only spent about $35!  [come see what we did!]

Project Estimate:

  • 4 posterboards, $2
  • crepe paper streamers, $2
  • paper plates, $1
  • plastic tablecloth, $1.25
  • 20 t-shirts, $20
  • t-shirt transfer paper, about $2
  • 18 squirt guns, $6

Total:  about $34.25
