No birthday party is complete without a goodie bag for guests to take home at the end. Make the contents of the treat bag match the theme of the party or fill them with fun toys for kids. If you’re stuck, here are a few ideas for things to include in treat bags.
1. Friendship Bracelet Supplies
Send guests home with the supplies they need to make and swap friendship bracelets. Include three or four skeins of embroidery floss, a few pony beads and printed instructions.
2. Playground Games
Encourage play and activity by filling the treat bags with playground toys and games. Put a jump rope in a few of the bags, a super bouncy ball in a few others and chalk for hopscotch in the remaining bags.
3. Mini Water Guns
If its summer time, these are a must! Include a few mini water guns for an impromptu water fight!
4. Art Supplies
A great way to send guests home after an arts and crafts themed party is with a treat bag filled with art supplies, such as crayons, markers and coloring books. You can also include modeling clay and a small watercolor paint set.
Include a bottle of bubble solution in the treat bags to keep kids entertained for hours. Bubbles are ideal for younger and older children.
6. Glow Sticks
Glow sticks or glow-in-the-dark necklaces are a lot of fun, especially if you are hosting a sleepover. Give the guests their treat bags a little early so that they can play with the glow sticks overnight.
Pick an accessory, such as a pair of gloves, a hat or socks, and include it in the treat bags. If you want, you can have guests decorate the accessories as part of the party.
8. Books or bookmarks
Choose age and grade-appropriate paperback books for the bag and customize each book with a note on the front page. If your packing for a large group or party, include book marks- make them all different so kids can trade!
9. Juice box or capri sun
If you’re hosting a party, your guests may get thirsty! Pack a juice or capri sun in their treat bags for a quick breather.
10. Cookie Cutters
Cookie cutters and a recipe for cookie dough are an inexpensive thing to include in any treat bag.
