DIY Favours

Favours for Kids – Story in a Bag

Let’s face it, the last thing you want is a bunch of bored children crying and screaming on your wedding day. So, bust the kids boredom by giving them favours bags which double up as a fun and interactive game – “Story in a Bag“.

Here’s one I made for my daughter to banish away rainy day boredom.

What you’ll need:

  • 1 Bag per child (Any bag to suit your wedding theme)
  • Random small objects and toys (objects from the bottom of your handbag and purse, lucky packets, McD’s toys and Kinder Egg toys are all great)
  • Label (see Creature Comforts for a collection of beautiful FREE printable labels)
  • Pen (to write “How-to-play” instructions onto labels)


  • Fill each bag with 8 – 10 objects
  • Write the “How To Play” instructions on the back of the labels you’ve printed
  • Attach your label


How To Play:

  • Choose who goes first. 1st player takes 3 – 5 objects out of the bag (no peeking!)
  • Make up a story using your objects for ideas. The story must have a beginning, middle and end.
  • After the story, choose who goes next.

Happy Storytelling!
