Kids Party Favor Ideas
Kids party favors just may be the most fun favor of all to create!
Why? Because as you put each treat or trinket into your party favor box or party
favor bag, you know that a little, very excited hand is going to pull it out with love.
The enthusiasm children carry around with them is infectious. I know when I create my son's kids birthday party favors that I am just as excited
to hand them out as the party-goers are to take them!
The obvious party favors for kids you are probably looking to create are for birthdays; however, there are other kids' parties out there that you may
be working on (think baptism's, pre-school graduation, holiday parties, etc). The goal of this section is to give you generalized guidelines for
creating the prefect kids party favors for your event.

General Construction: Party Favors for Kids
Any of these kids party favor ideas can be used in conjunction with our general
party favor ideas to create the perfect gift!
- Choose either a party favor box or party favor bag depending on the theme of the party. For example, if you are hosting a Toy Story party,
you will definitely be able to find a pre-made bag at Wal*Mart or other such stores. If you are hosting a Halloween party, there are a variety of
boxes and bags available in this theme that you can buy. However, if you are hosting a party for a more obscure theme (think Grover from Sesame
Street or Super Why from PBS) then you'll probably have to make your holders. You can do this by choosing a vibrant color that matches the character
or theme. Places like Michaels have boxes and bags in every color, shape, and size.
- Next choose the treats to add in the bag or box. These can be theme, age, or gender based, depending on your choice. For the Toy Story party
you might add in a plastic Sheriff's badge, a sheet of TS stickers, a bottle of bubbles, and 2-3 candies. This is an example of a combination favor
bag. The options are endless and we'll go into more detail about specific themes later on.
- Finally, decide how you want to display each child's name. If you use a bag, tie it off with a small piece of ribbon and attach a name card
to the ribbon. If you use a box, close it up and use scrapbooking letters (found at any Michaels) to spell out each name.
