The Birthday Box - A Pancit + Pabitin Party. Customary of children’s birthday celebrations in the Philippines are these two elements: PANCIT - the ultimate Filipino party food consisting of stir-fried noodles that symbolize long life, and the PABITIN - a fun party activity in which kids grab for candy and treats much like the Mexican piñata. This box gives families the opportunity to explore these Philippine customs through crafting, coloring, and cooking. Contents include Francesca: Isa, Dalawa, Sorpresa, a birthday party-themed audio/e-book by @philipandanapublishing, a unique paper craft by @mardoodlerstudio, and an artisanal langka/jackfruit-flavored birthday cake by @justforkeyks, ready to be decorated with the enclosed frosting and fruity pebbles toppings! That sure sounds like a party to me!
And no fun birthday party is complete without a party favor. Enter the Collector’s Mini Button Pin depicting a cutsie pancit and pabitin to commemorate the family’s exploration of this box. In fact, a commemorative button pin will be included in each Lil’ Balikbayan cultural exploration box that is released as a sort of badge of completion. We know your kids will be eager to collect them all!
So whether it be a Quarantine Birthday, Belated Birthday, Half Birthday, or Unbirthday, this box will give your family a reason to celebrate with a Pancit + Pabitin Party!
