I’m back with segment 2 of our Polar Express Christmas party (invitations here, printable tickets here, polar express quote subway art here)- the party favors. Santa will be handing these out to all the good little boys & girls when they sit on his knee.
We loved the idea of handing out bells to the children to go along with the theme of the book, but we also wanted it to have some more spiritually significant meaning. I like the spiritual parallels in the book, and this tag just brings them a little more to the forefront. When we believe in Christ, we hear & feel him (often through the Holy Ghost).
You can print these out in two ways:
- Print them out on regular 8.5X11 cardstock printer paper from home or at Kinkos
- Print them out as 4X6 photos at walmart or the like. Just depends on the finish you want for your tags.
Then punch holes, tie a pretty ribbon, and attach a bell. After doing some thorough research my awesome counselor Korilyn found them for the best price here on Amazon. They are silver and smaller than the one pictured in the photo above, but sill a good size we thought. You can also check your dollar store, I found some great ones there around Christmas, 9 in a pack.

UPDATE: I now have bell tags that are just the movie quote if that is what you prefer:
And you can print those with the button below (I recommend printing on cardstock for best results):
I also have available an entire Polar Express Party pack in my shop that includes these tags and so much more (like train tickets, banners and more)
If you use my tags be sure to tag your photos with #partylikeacherry so I can check out all your fun ideas! And for more polar express party ideas and printables see my full Polar Express party post here.

I throw a polar express party every year at my house. Thanks you and your amazing talents, I can tie in Christ to my party too!
Awesome Courtney! I would love to see pictures… Merry Christmas!
Thanks so much! These are great! Just printed and using them for our Ward Party!!
perfect! we had ours on saturday- the kids loved the bells “from santas sleigh”
I LOVE the bell tag with Christ on it but am trying to figure out how i can make each individual tag a 4×6 i would love to have them a little bigger. Do you have a file of them a little bigger?
Hi Emily! 4X6 would be a very large tag? But I dont know what you have planned for it. I dont have a file that size but I am happy to do customizations like that for a $5 fee. If you are interested just send me an email @ firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for sharing and doing all of the hard work! I wondered if you have a download of the bell tags with the Savior in a different size? I would like to print them as single 4×6’s, 5×7’s and 8×10’s to put in frames on some of the tables along with the other subway art. If you don’t have a download available, would it be possible to arrange for you to do that?
Hi Donna! I could do a custom order like that for $5 🙂 If interested go ahead and email me email@example.com
Thank you so much for sharing!!! Just printed out and will be using for a preschool party.
Oh that’s so great! I’d love if you shared your final product with me!

Hi Holly, I emailed you a link! Sorry about that! Email is the quickest way to reach me.
