With a little planning, you can easily make unique favors for your next party! These items can be made to go home as favors.
Take a skewer and thread fruit gummies such as Sour Gummy Worms or Twizzler Bites until the stick is covered. Or use wrapped mini chocolate bars, which makes it easy for kids to take home.
Kid-sized chalkboards are a great way for guests to practice spelling, numbers or drawing. They are also inexpensive. Buy mini chalk boards from your local craft store and attach packages of chalk to the boards with ribbon. Write the kids’ names on the boards so each person can find their own.
Party Pets to Take Home
Purchase small stuffed animals like puppies and kittens and place inside a wooden crate or basket. Make an “adopt a
pet” sign and hang above. Kids will love getting to adopt their very own stuffed animal when leaving the party and choosing a name for their new pet.
Fill bug catchers with gummy worms for a snack and give to guests. Kids can use later to catch outside bugs like
caterpillars or other critters.
Party Favor Toy Bar
Cover a table in different sized bowls and containers. Fill each container or bowl with candies, art supplies, nail polish,
toy cars etc. and give each child a small bag. Let them pick items of their choosing and add them to their bag to take home.
Fill a child’s sand bucket with items to match a
beach or pool theme. Add inexpensive action gures, gardening supplies and glow sticks. Tie a thank you note to the
Give out clay pots, a packet of seeds and soil. Kids can plant the flowers when they get
home and wait for the seeds to grow. As a birthday party activity, decorate the pots with paint pens.
Place flashlights and other decorative items on a a table and let them have fun decorating and being creative with their own design. Do this at the beginning of the party so the paint can dry. Each child can take home their flashlight to use
camping, in their rooms for reading or playing outside.
Make a S’more to go kit for children to take home. Take graham crackers, marshmallows and chocolate bars and make a s’mores stack. You can even make a printable thank you, thanking a friend for attending and attach it to the bags.
