Explorers, Adventurers and Dinosaurs Oh My! - DIY Gift Idea

This year, for Harvey's little friends, I put together kits as birthday gifts. Every kid loves a good party/goody bag, right? So why not make the ultimate party bag. Totally personalised for each little birthday boy/girl.

We had explorer's kits, adventure kits, Suitcase full of dinosaurs, A mini farm in a case, Mini train set in a case, DIY City in a case, and a Case full of purple.

The little suitcases I used are from Sass & Belle. They are little nesting cases in 3 sizes with really cute patterns. I just love the idea of receiving a box of treasures and trinkets. But you don't have to use a suitcase. Maybe a pretty box, basket or a lovely canvas bag.

Here is what I put in some of my favourite kits.

Explorer's Kit
• bug container
• magnifying glass
• whistle
• windup torch
• compass
• notebook and pencils
• extendable pond net
• glow in the dark minibeasts

Mini City
• personalised name road map
• set of city stamps
• matchbox cars

Mini Farm
• cute little baby animals from Schleich

They also make for great travel activities. The possiblities are endless!

I really hope Harvey's little friends enjoy them as much as I have putting them together. It has been so much fun.
