With more than 100 flavors, kid-friendly themes come together in countless ways with true-to-life flavors.  Parties are usually made up of fun and food, so accomplish both tasks and create delicious entertainment when you bring Jelly Belly jelly beans into the mix.

Utilize the variety of fantastic colors in the Jelly Belly collection to create decorations and crafts surrounding your big bash. Jelly Belly jelly bean flowers work perfectly for an outdoor event and kids love to create them by “gluing” together delicious jelly beans using white cake icing.  Draw or print pictures of various flowers and allow the children to try to copy the shapes using colorful Jelly Belly flavors such as Cotton Candy, Lime, and Coconut.  Lay the “flowers” directly on the table for decoration, or take them home for a sweet treat.

When it comes to the little ladies, color is the name of the game. Throw a rainbow party (like this one from Creative Juice) and have fun displaying a rainbow of Jelly Belly jelly bean colors in adorable matching cups.  If she is in a pink phase (it happens), take advantage of the many Jelly Belly jelly bean flavors that fall within that theme.  Cotton Candy, Bubblegum, and Strawberry Cheesecake are just a few flavors that allow party guests to see the world through rose-colored glasses!
