Deciding how to spend your child’s birthday is the first step in creating a memorable celebration. Figuring out what to give your guests as party favors is the crucial second step. Sending your guests home with smiles on their faces can cement your party’s success. No matter how enjoyable your child’s party might be, the following party favor ideas can ensure that your child’s friends fondly remember your event once they walk out the door.
DIY Picture Frames
Kids love crafts. Giving them the chance to make one-of-a-kind picture frames is an ideal way to get their creative juices flowing. You can offer this party favor in one of two ways. If time permits, you can set up a craft station with plain frames, markers, paint, glitter, decals, and other embellishments, then allow your guests to design their own picture frames. If your party is in a public space that doesn’t allow craft time, you can send your guests home with their frames and a sampling of decorative items.
Special Occasion Photographs
You might also give your guests something to put inside a frame. Though a nice group photo can provide a wonderful memory of your child’s birthday celebration, why not give your guests a reason to get goofy? Bring silly accessories to your party that the kids can wear. Funny hats, feather boas, and oversized sunglasses will make for a laughter-filled photo session.
Game Time Gifts
If your party has a game theme, there’s no better way to end the festivities than with complementary party favors. You can fill up goody bags with mini games and toys that invoke the spirit of your event. For instance, if you play WhirlyBall or foosball, you can include miniature basketballs and soccer balls among your gifts.
