DIY Pokemon Pikachu party cups

Thrifty way to save some money for a Pokemon party. Make your own DIY Pokemon Pikachu party cups.

DIY Pokemon Pikachu party cups

My son wanted a Pokemon party. Kid’s birthday parties can be so expensive. But being the thrifty lady that I am, I don’t spend a lot on them. We were able to come up with some great ideas and together we made some easy decorations and party supplies. There aren’t as many pictures as I had hoped to get but I did get to take a few.

To make these cups you will need:

yellow party cups

black sharpie

red sharpie

All you have to do is find a picture of Pikachu and copied his face with sharpie. The kids loved these cups and they were a big hit. I love doing inexpensive things like this for kid’s parties that they love and they don’t cost anything extra.

The Pikachu behind the cups is a pin the tail game that I found here and printed off at a local print shop so I didn’t use all my ink. The kids had a blast with it!

Here are the invites we used. They are a free printable we found here  and added all the party info before printing them off at the print shop too.

BEST WAY TO FREEZE STRAWBERRIES

how to freeze strawberries

One tip to saving money is to buy your produce in season at its LOWEST price point and store it for the rest of the year.  I got an 8 lb flat of strawberries  week.  I did 4 batches of jam, but put the rest in the freezer.  That way I can use them for recipes and smoothies  the rest of the year.

If you toss them all into a bag they will freeze into a huge mass and you will not get them separated till they thaw.  I have found the BEST WAY TO FREEZE STRAWBERRIES is rather simple and can be done in 5 easy steps.

First ~ Wash and clean the strawberries, and take the green stem off.  If they are large berries you might want to cut them into halves or quarters.

Second ~ Put them on a towel to dry, you do not want them to be wet or they will stick to everything they are touching as they freeze.

Third ~ Once they are dry spread them onto a cookie sheet that has plastic wrap on it. Spread them into an even layer, and try to keep the berries from touching.

Fourth ~ Put them into the freezer, you can take them out as soon as an hour but I normally leave them in there at least a few hours to get them good and frozen.   You can even leave them in over night. They will now be hard and separated and will NOT stick to the other strawberries.  Pull the plastic wrap up and they should fall right off with no sticking. ( I did try the silicone mat and they stuck  so I recommend plastic wrap.)

Fifth ~ Place them in a freezer bag seal it shut try and get as much air out as you can.  Put it back into the freezer… and take as many strawberries out as you need at a time.  Now go make yourself a yummy treat for your hard work 🙂
