A great value bag with two creative activities included as well as our Eco Hero card. This option also makes a perfect base to add on toys and treats from our build-your-own section.
Origami whale and paper – Easy to follow and very cute to colour in, origami animals have been a popular kids activity for generations and long may that continue. I remember having these at one of my parties many (many!) years ago. Each bag will have a blue square to create the whale and instructions. Printed on recycled paper with vegan friendly ink and easily recycled after use.
Postcard – Encourages children to get creative. They can then send their artwork to someone special to brighten up their day.
Eco Hero Card – Bright and fun card that comes with a word search game and easy ways kids can help be eco-heros. Like our postcard and whales these are printed on recycled paper with vegan friendly ink.
Party Bag – Our newspaper bags are made by an NGO whose main objective is to provide education and shelter to street children. This eco-friendly product is made from recycled Indian newspaper. The organisation was started in 2004 by street children who wanted to give something back in return for the opportunities which had allowed them to escape desperate circumstances. These elder children, now with children of their own, generate an income by making newspaper bags and jute items. This allows them to take care of the children that they have taken in from the streets surrounding New Delhi train station. Support for this wonderful project means that these children can enjoy going to school and playing, rather than pulling rickshaws, shoe polishing, rag picking and worse.
The newspapers are either in Indian language or English. They are made from recycled newspapers, this is why sometimes your bag will have a completed crossword!
