10 Cool Birthday Party Favors For Kids

10 Cool Birthday Party Favors For Kids

Planning kids’ birthday parties isn’t as simple as it used to be. At one time, all you had to do was invite a few kids over, plan a few games, serve some food, and then send the kids home with their loot bags, which were just a few cheap trinkets and treats. These days, you need to go above and beyond former expectations, and make sure that parties are fun and exciting. You also need to up the ante when it comes to what you give out for party favors. But, you shouldn’t have to break the bank to do it. Here are 10 cool party favors to give out at your kid’s next birthday party, and they won’t cost a fortune. In fact, you can get many of these at your local dollar store.

1. Temporary Tattoos

Tattoos are more popular than ever, but of course, in most places you can’t get one until you are 18 years old. But, anyone can wear temporary tattoos. Kids love them, and they are awesome party favors.

2. Playing Cards

There are all kinds of kids’ playing cards out there. You can get decks for them to play regular card games, or specialty decks with their favorite characters and special games that can only be played with those cards.

3. Books

Parents will be thrilled when their kids come home with new books instead of little toys that will get broken or lost, or candy that is unhealthy. You can get cheap books online, in department stores, and even in the dollar section at stores like Target.

4. Bubbles

What kid doesn’t love bubbles? Even older kids (and a lot of adults) love playing with bubbles. You can get bottles of bubble lotion with wants at your local dollar store, making this an inexpensive and fun party favor.

5. Buttons

Kids love superheroes and other popular characters. They also love it when they have things that are personalized. Why not have special buttons made up to give out as party favors? You can use superheroes and other characters, and add the kids’ names to make party favors that kids will love. Custom Button Co can help you with button design.

6. Home-Made Crayons

Party favors for little kids often include crayons. Do something different, and melt down old, broken crayons to make fun new colors and shapes. Use silicone molds to make fun crayon party favors that the kids will love to use.

7. Sidewalk Chalk

Whether they are budding artists or they love to play hopscotch, kids can always use sidewalk chalk. Again, you can find this at your local dollar store, so it is an inexpensive and fun party favor. You may even want to include sidewalk chalk art as one of the party activities, and offer prizes for the best artwork.

8. CD’s

If your kids are having a dance party, you can make up CD’s that include all of the music played at the party. The kids will be able to listen to their favorite tunes from the party whenever they want.

9. Craft Kits

This is a two-in-one item that is great for kids’ birthday parties. You have a couple of options. The kids can do the crafts as party activities and take their creations home with them. Or, the kits can be their party favors to take home and work on later.

10. Goldfish Soap

Parents will love that you gave their kids something that will encourage them to take baths. To make this soap, simply melt clear glycerin soap base, add some light blue food-grade colorant, and fill a baggie 1/3 of the way. When it has set enough to be semi-solid, stick a couple of plastic goldfish on top, and fill the rest of the way with the melted glycerin, leaving enough space to tie a knot at the top of the bag.
