To give you the inspirational nudge, here are some really enticing party favor ideas that can change the way you look at party giveaways.
Adopt-a-Plushie Party Favors
For when you’re having animal-themed kiddie parties, bundle stuffed animal toys and plushies in a box or basket with a sign Adopt a Plushie on it, and place it by the exit or somewhere children can easily see and reach.
If your animal party theme is specific like dogs or squirrels or kitties, the sign can say Adopt a Puppy or Adopt a Pet Squirrel to fit the theme. This is usually a big hit for children who don’t have pets yet or want their own pets to have new companions.
Glitter Slime Party Favors
Want to know the number one criteria for what makes awesome party favors? They get used even after the party ends and not just stashed away in a box of home decors that moms put in the storage room.
It’s for this reason that toys make great choices for party favors. One particularly unique one is glitter slime.
You know how well kids enjoy working and manipulating things with their hands. A glitter slime is the perfect toy to keep them engaged and occupied, especially when you have to take them somewhere and they feel bored and fidgety.
It’s so easy to create your own glitter slime. For this project, you only need (a) glitter glue, (b) borax, and (c) water. You can stick to one color or mix different colors so the kids can choose.
