How To Create Your Own Balloon Garland

How To Create Your Own Balloon Garland

Wedding Decor, Baby Shower Decorations, Party Decorations

 

Balloon Garlands are the Number 1 Party Piece world wide at the moment!! And we know why!! They look fantastic, they make a huge impression on a budget, you do not need to use Helium to create them and best of all as they are air filled you can create the balloon garland a few days in advance of the party which is always a massive bonus as who want’s to be worried about frantically decorating their house while juggling food, cake and guests arriving any moment!! Don’t worry we have all been there and that is why the team here at One Stop Kids Party Shop have gone crazy for the DIY Balloon garland Kits.

 

How it Works

Here at One Stop Kids Party Shop we supply DIY Balloon Garland Kits in many different colours schemes. We help our customers to create their very DIY balloon garland kit by supplying a 3 Metre long Plastic Balloon Decorating Strip with their kit, that means at the end the balloon garland can be up to 3 Metres long. However you can cut the strip down to make it smaller, or cut it into two or three different pieces to create a few smaller balloon garlands. What we love about DIY balloon garlands is they allow for individual creativity and imagination. We usually get our customers to email us their creations and it is just so exciting and rewarding to see how different people take the same items and add their very unique touch on it.

The Balloon Decorating Strip is designed for any size balloon. Balloons may be inflated with air or helium. Two hole sizes are provided. The smaller for balloons 3″ to 9″ and the larger for balloons 9″ to 18″. You may not need to use all holes provided. This clear, polyethylene strip is practically invisible as it holds up to 12 balloons per foot.

1. Use all same size balloons or stagger larger and smaller balloons. Choose colors to complement your event space. Inflate and tie the balloons.

2. Cut strip to desired length for clusters, arches, streamers or garlands. Leave extra on the ends for fastening the decoration once complete.

3. Pinch the lip of the balloon together and pull the knot in the balloon neck through the hole.

4. Attach balloons to one or both sides of the strip to create an even cluster. Explore variations until you recieve your desired look. Skip a hole if balloons are too tight.

5. Use as is or attach accessories to complement your event theme such as curling ribbon, flowers, leaves, tulle, etc. These finishing special touches to your garland can be found at stores such as Kmart, The reject Shop, Dollar Stores and Target/Spotlight however Target and Spotlight tend to be a little more pricey.

6) We always remind our customers to NOT OVER INFLATE THEIR BALLOONS it is tempting to over inflate your balloon perhaps thinking it will last longer, look bigger than it is or just plain error, this is a big No No. Over inflated balloons look ugly think about the type of balloon that looks like a light globe compared to a nice tear drop shape. The over inflated one is the the ugly light globe shape one and they really do not look appealing to look at and they certainly will look really yuck on your Balloon Garland. You want your balloon to still be a bit squishy for a balloon garland and leave a long tail as this will make putting them all together much easier later.

7) You do not have to use the balloon strip to create your DIY Garland kit that you purchase from us. There are many other creative ways to put together a DIY balloon garland and we will put some links to some great You Tube Tutorials below.

8) The most important things to remember are allow extra time so you don’t get flustered. Do not over inflate your balloons or they will pop shortly after been inflated as balloons expand. Don’t put to much pressure on your self to get it right as there really is not right or wrong way to create a DIY balloon garland it is all about having fun and letting your creativity run wild.

Kids Party Food / Kids Party Recipes

Welcome to One Stop Kids Party shop, so here at One Stop we sell all the fun kids party supplies like party decorations, party invitations, kids party games, party favours, party bags and so on, but we know there is more to children’s birthday parties than the party supplies. The other very important component of a child’s birthday party is the kids party food. So we have started to compile a kids party menu if you like with all your traditional as well as modern kids party food recipes. We have tried to include a mixture of both “fun” maybe not so healthy kids party food recipes as well as healthy kids party food recipes. And of course always remember to check with parents as to whether or not any of the children attending your birthday party have allergies. In my personal opinion it is better to 100% stay clear of nuts then check for other possible allergies such as dairy, lactose and gluten intolerances. Ok now for the fun part the recipes.

Weet bix slice

 

Marshmallow Pops

bag of marshmallows (the round ones work best)
skewers
icing (I went for the shop bought version, pink colour, just some warming up and ready to go)
colourful sprinkles of all kinds

Now put a few marshmallows on the skewers. Have your icing and sprinkles ready for use.
Little bowl for the icing and a plate for the sprinkles.
Dip each marshmallow in the icing and right after that in the sprinkles.
Repeat until no more marshmallows left…

I put mine in a glass to keep them up and let the icing dry.

Done and really that easy and really that beautiful result and so many possibilities…

Strawberry Pancake Skewers

strawberries
skewers
pancakes and if you live in The Netherlands you can get poffertjesas they are already in the perfect size – otherwise you can make them yourself or get/make pancakes and cut tiny ones with a cookie cutter

Now you slice your strawberries and heat up the poffertjes/ pancakes and assemble both on a stick.
Arrange on a plate and cover slightly with some icing sugar.
Done again and who does not love pancakes with strawberries? Exactly…

Biscuit wands recipe

With this easy biscuit wand recipe, you can have heaps of fun baking with your little fairy. We’ve made wands in the shapes of stars, hearts and circles but you could cut out biscuit wands in any shape that takes your fancy!

Serving Size:

Makes about 20

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 125g butter, melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1 cup self-raising flour
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 20 icypole sticks
  • Assorted sprinkles

Method:

Line two baking trays with baking paper.

Place sugar in a large bowl, melt butter and pour over sugar.

Stir well and add remaining ingredients. Stir to combine.

Lightly flour a surface and roll the dough out to 8-10mm thick.

Cut out shapes. Use a metal slide/spatula to carefully lift onto prepared trays.

Repeat rolling, cutting and lifting until all dough is used.

Place 5cm apart on trays (I had them too close, see picture) to allow for spreading.

Carefully push an icypole stick into each biscuit.

Bake 15 minutes until golden brown.

Remove from oven, cool slightly before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

Make a simple icing with 1 cup icing sugar and 1-2 teaspoons water. Spread each wand with icing and decorate with sprinkles.

Notes:

  • Use non-coloured icypole sticks – we got ours from a craft shop. As much as the kids would love coloured sticks, they are probably not terribly nutritionally sound!

Kids Party Food

 

Baby sushi

Baby Sushi

Sushi is loved by children and adults alike – and this baby sushi is just perfect for little hands to hold. Roll fresh sticks of your kids’ favourite vegetables inside the nori sheets and you have an easy and healthy kids party snack.

Serving Size:

4

Special Info:

Egg free, Gluten free, Lactose free, Nut free

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup sushi rice
  • 1 ½ cups water
  • 3 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 6 sheets nori (don’t mention it’s seaweed!)
  • bamboo mat
  • carrot sticks
  • cucumber sticks
  • cooked beef or chicken
  • avocado slices
  • soy sauce and pickled ginger, to serve

Method:

Place rice and water in a saucepan, cover and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to a simmer for 10 minutes. Turn off heat and leave for 10 minutes covered.

Spread rice into a container and allow to cool, then sprinkle with combined vinegar and sugar. Stir thoroughly.

Use scissors to cut a sheet of nori in half. Place nori shiny side down on the bamboo mat. Place some of the rice on the sheet, press down with wet fingers to a depth of 0.5cm, leaving a 1cm gap at one end. Arrange fillings in a line on top of the rice.

Start rolling up from the end with fillings. Lift the bamboo mat and roll tightly. Wet the strip at the end and push gently to seal the edges. Slice into six or eight pieces using a sharp, wet knife.

Place on a serving platter, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30-60 minutes to allow the nori to soften.

Serve with soy sauce and pickled ginger.

Notes

  • The kids will love helping prepare these sushi rolls. And the baby pieces are a great way to introduce sushi to the little ones. Although my daughter insists she likes the large hand rolls, like in the shops.
  • I like to lay the filling on top of the rice, but it might make it easier for the kids if you finely chop the filling and stir it through the rice. This would be a good way to sneak in some fish, prawns and ‘unmentionable vegetables’.
  • Leftover chicken strips were fantastic in these sushi rolls.

Fruit kebabs with yoghurt dip

kids fruit kebabs

Fruit kebabs just say summer to me and you could not have a more healthy snack for the whole family. Here we give them a delicious yoghurt dip for a creamy flavour contrast.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup pineapple, peeled and diced
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1 punnet strawberries
  • 1 cup grapes
  • 2 oranges, peeled and diced
  • 2 x 60g Yoplait Petit Miam fromage frais

Method:

Take bamboo skewers and thread the fruit on in your preferred order.

Pour the Petit Miam into a dipping bowl.

Use half an orange to sink the skewers into for display.

Notes

  • You can use any fruit you have on hand or that is in season.
  • Make sure that you take into account the children’s age when making these. I like to make tiny kebabs for tiny hands. If I am serving these to children I also cut off the sharp tips with scissors.

Swirly sandwiches

kids party food
Slice the crusts off the bread and cut the loaf lengthways into four equal slices. Flatten each slice with a rolling pin.

Serving Size:

Makes 20

Ingredients:

  • 1 loaf white bread, unsliced
  • 60g butter, softened
  • Green and blue sprinkles

Method:

Slice the crusts off the bread and cut the loaf lengthways into four equal slices.

Flatten each slice with a rolling pin.

Spread with butter and cover with sprinkles.

Roll up the bread lengthways; you might need to spread a bit more butter on the end of the roll-up to get the sprinkle-side to stick.

Slice each roll into five shells.

Notes:

  • Make the sandwiches the night before or the morning of the party, place on a serving platter, cover with plastic film and refrigerate until needed.
  • I used green and purple ‘Twinkles’ and a mix of blue and green sprinkles.
  • For the adults I made a plain cream cheese version.
  • Recipe created by Melissa Hughes for Kidspot. .

Veggie pikelets

Kids Party Food
These veggie pikelets are packed full of healthy vegetables and your kids won’t even notice. Whip them up for afternoon tea or to pop into lunch boxes.

Prep Time:

10 mins

Cook Time:

10 mins

Ingredients:

  • 2 cup self-raising flour – I use 1 cup wholemeal and 1 cup white self-raising flour
  • 6 eggs
  • 4-5 cups of grated zucchini, and corn
  • 1/2 – 1 cup grated cheese of your choice
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • milk

Method:

Mix all ingredients together, adding milk last until mixture is slightly runny.

Heat a frying pan with a small amount of olive oil and drop a tablespoon of the mixture into the pan, patting into a neat circle.

Cook until golden on each side.

Serve with sauce or a dip such as natural yoghurt flavoured with a small amount of curry.

 

Notes:

  • These are lovely for breakfast.
  • Add one finely sliced, and deseeded birdseye chili and a handful of coriander leaves for an adult version. Top with sour cream.
  • Be sure to use a non-stick pan for this as things can get ugly with any other type of frying pan\.

 

Kids baked beanz party cups

Kidz-Baked-Beanz-Party-Cups_2

Kids’ birthday parties need to be fun but don’t think you need to fill them up with sugary, salty foods to have fun! They’ll love these tasty little party cups filled with beans, ham, tomato and cheese and best of all, they’re no more effort to make than fairy bread!

Ingredients:

  • 12 mini flour tortillas
  • 2 x 400g HEINZ BEANZ in Tomato Sauce
  • 100g sliced ham, chopped
  • 1 chopped tomato
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, shaved using a vegetable peeler or grated

Method:

Heat tortillas in a microwave oven for 20 seconds then cut a small incision from the centre of the tortilla to the outer edge to enable you to form a neat circle when pressing into the moulds. Press flour tortillas into 12 x ½ cup capacity greased muffin pans and bake in a preheated oven of 160°C for 7 minutes.

Remove from oven and place 2 tablespoonfuls of HEINZ BEANZ into each tortilla. Return to oven for a further 10 minutes, or until the beans are hot and the tortillas crisp and lightly golden.

Divide ham and tomato between the 12 tortilla cups and finish with a few shavings of cheddar cheese.  Serve hot.

Notes:

  • These cups are definitely best served hot – but you can do most of the work before the party begins and then just pop them in the oven when your guests are ready to eat.
  • You could try adding some more exotic fillings – but these ones here are guaranteed kid-pleasers!
  • This recipe was created by HEINZ BEANZ – fuel for Australian families.

Birthday biscuits for school

2188

Serving Size:

20 – 24

Ingredients:

  • 1 packet Marie biscuits
  • 2 cups icing sugar
  • red and blue food colouring
  • 1 packet pink and white marshmallows
  • sprinkles or coloured sugar crystals
  • 1 packet Freddo frogs

Method:

Place icing sugar in a bowl, add 1-2 teaspoons of water to make a smooth spreadable paste. Transfer half the icing to another bowl. Colour one bowl with red colouring and one with blue (my daughter helped me with this so we had very strong colours!). Spread half the Marie biscuits with pink icing. Cut marshmallows in half, press the cut side into the sprinkles or sugar crystals and then place sprinkle-side up on a biscuit. You need four marshmallow halves per biscuit.

For the Freddo biscuits, spread the blue icing on the remaining Marie biscuits and top with a frog. Leave for 30 minutes for the icing to set and then store in an air-tight container. These can be prepared the night before you are taking them to school.

Homemade rice puff bars recipe

Rice puff bars are very popular with kids of all ages. Now you can make your own with this easy recipe that includes Rice Bubbles, marshmallows and 100s and 1000s.

Serving Size:

Makes 16 bars

Ingredients:

  • 6 cups Rice Bubbles
  • ½ cup 100s and 1000s
  • 1 pkt (250g)  marshmallows
  • 125g unsalted butter, melted

Method:

Grease a 16cm x 26cm slice tray and set aside.

Chop 1 cup marshmallows and combine in a bowl with Rice Bubbles and 100s and 1000s.

Melt remaining marshmallows in a heat-proof bowl in the microwave (on high for 15-20 seconds). Add melted marshmallows and melted butter to the Rice Bubble mixture. Stir well to combine.

Transfer mixture into tray and press down with the back of a metal spoon. Refrigerate until set, then cut into 16 bars. Store in an air-tight container in the fridge.

Notes

  • Variations include using Coco Pops for chocolatey twist and drizzling with white or milk chocolate for an extra sugar hit.
  • I prefer to keep these bars in the fridge as they are a bit crumbly at room temperature.

Apple cinnamon muffins recipe

These moist apple cinnamon muffins are so easy to make. Bake and store them in the freezer for a quick lunch box solution Or for Kids Party Food

Prep Time:

10 mins

Cook Time:

25 mins

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups self-raising flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 1 cup tinned pie apples, chopped

Method:

Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a 12 cup muffin tray and set aside.

In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cinnamon and salt and mix.

In a jug, combine the egg, milk, vanilla, oil and pie apples.

Fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients using a spatula until all ingredients are just wet.

Using a 1/3 cup measure, fill each muffin cup and smooth the top.

Bake for 22-25 minutes. Leave to cool in the tray for 5 minutes and then transfer to a wire rack to further cool.

Notes

  • I like to make a double batch of these and wrap them indiviually and freeze. You just pop them into the microwave for a minute to defrost.
  • When making muffins you should only mix until the ingredients are just wet. Any more mixing gives you a heavy muffin.
  • I have used tinned pie apple for convenience but you may also use 1 cup of freshly grated apple.
