    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.
