HEXBUG Nano V2 Party

Product provided. Please see below for full disclosure.

The weekend before last I threw a HEXBUG Nano V2 Party for my children and several of their friends.  Having three children, all different ages and both genders, it can sometimes be difficult finding something that interests all of them. When I was planning this small intimate party I knew I wanted it to be fun for all three of my children and for the children that would be attending, and thankfully, it was.

A party just isn’t complete without snacks, especially themed snacks.  The snacks I served were all easy to make, fun to eat and fit the ‘bug” theme perfectly.

HEXBUG party foodI made a sheet of HEXBUG Party snack printables that you are welcome to print out and use yourself.  It includes a label for Ants on a Log, Bug Juice, Bugs on a Stick, Caterpillar Grapes and Worms & Dirt.

You can find them in 10 exciting color combinations, including a pink one for the girls!  Each Hexbug Nano V2 single pack comes with a bug and a clear tube.  These tubes can be used to connect to other V2 habitat sets letting you be in charge of designing your own habitat.

I think the party was a huge success and I love how toys can bring families and friends together.  I didn’t really do much in the way of decorating, mainly because I was working on a very quick time schedule, but I’ve made a Hexbug Pinterest Board and will continue to pin any ideas that I come across.

Just a word of caution, don’t let them run free. They make a ton of noise if they get trapped under the stove.  Not that I have experience with that or anything…but that is what I’ve heard.

    It’s amazing how far these have come. We got the boys a hexbug set for Christmas last year, but it didn’t have all of the tubes. We will have to get some more to add to their arena they have. Love all of your cute themed snacks too.

    These are the most manic, crazy little critters but I find them irresistibly fun just like kids do!

    Oh my goodness those look like such fun toys to play with, and I love the little habitats they assembled for them.

    Oh…now the blueberries make more sense. Mine had a blueberry for a head. I planned on making the dirt cake, but stupid me bought cook and serve pudding and didn’t realize it until after it didn’t set for the party. ugh!

    I had 15 children in my house. Insanity I tell ya, especially when pregnant and exhausted! They ALL loved the HEXBUGs, though!
