One of the major stresses when it comes to small human’s birthday parties is the party bags. It takes ages to find all the little trinkets and it is costly too. If you have 20 or 30 kids coming to your kid’s do, it can take forever to get bits together. But it doesn’t have to be time-consuming. Instead of filling bags full of items they probably will only use once, you should consider doing just one nice item which will go down well. It will not only make things easier but it’s a lot more eco-friendly too. Here are a few ideas of items you can give at your child’s party to make life a lot easier when it comes to party planning.
There is no rule that says you need to buy items for the guests’ party bags. Therefore, save some money and make something instead. One of the best things you can do is make some homemade treats. Baking a few scrumptious snacks will go down well with the small humans as they enjoy their treat after their party. And it’s something that will be used and not sit on the side after the party. All you need to do is get a few ingredients for the baked goods you want to cook and then you can make several of the treats at the same time. One good idea is a delicious homemade gingerbread man. Kids all love ginger snacks and you could always personalise each gingerbread man so it’s extra special for each child.
Parents will love if you give your little one’s friends a book instead of the usual bag full of little items. Kids will never have enough books and it’s important to encourage them to read in a world full of tech. We gave books at my daughter’s first birthday and it was a perfect option for the young children and it’s something special they will keep a long time. You might want to go for a specific theme and remember to buy in bulk as you will get a great deal on a large number of books.
A fabric bag
Another cool idea which is sweet and eco-friendly is a fabric bag. You can fill the bag with something personalised which will make it extra special for the youngsters. For instance, you could get personalised straws or pens which you can place inside the bag. Or you could even get a fabric bag which has a design which they can colour in which will keep them busy for hours after the party.
A new popular idea that kids will love is a packet of seeds. They can grow them in their garden and watch as it flourishes over time. Whether it’s seeds for a flower or a vegetable, it’s a fun idea which will get them outdoors in the sunshine. And you could even give them a mini plant pot so they have somewhere to put their new seeds. They will remember the party fondly as the seeds grow.
