Last month my son celebrated his birthday with a fun space-themed party at our local museum. I didn’t need to do a lot of crafting for this party since we’d be exploring the museum for most of the time. One craft I did decide to make were these cute alien treat bags for the kids. They were a great way to tie in the space theme and they were so quick and easy to make. I did them the day before the party!
Googly eyes always seem to make things a bit more exciting so these bags have plenty of googly eyes on them! The alien images are from Freepik.com and you can download them for free. Below you can see how quickly these came together. They’d be perfect for a monster-themed party as well. Fill them with toys, candy or themed treats and the kids will love them!
Alien and Monster themed party favor bags
- Small gift bags. I found mine at Party City and they measured about 4″ x 5″
- Googly eyes – the crazier the better! This set is perfect! – Wiggle Eyes Multi-Pack
- Free alien images from Freepik.com
Step One: The first thing you’ll need to do is find and print your alien images. I found mine at Freepik.com – one of my favorite sites for great graphics. The aliens I used are called Cartoon Aliens. Most are free for personal use, you are just limited to downloading only a certain amount of images a day. Resize your images so they are a good size for your bags.
Step Two: Once you have the aliens printed, cut them out. I left a small white border around mine just to make it quicker to cut them out.
Step Three: Glue the aliens to the front of the treat bags with a glue stick. Then glue on the crazy googly eyes! I had a great package of googly eyes that included all different sizes and colors and even some with eyelashes so I just went to town adding googly eyes wherever I could! I used my Tombow glue to attach all of the googly eyes.
That’s it! The bags are finished and ready to be filled! These bags are so much fun – especially when each bag features a different little alien on it! The kids at the party loved picking out an alien bag at the end of the party and I loved that they reinforced our space theme in a space that didn’t allow much decorating. :)
