Offering children birthday party goodie bags may be expected in your circle of family and friends. These party favors have become very popular over the years, so much so that some kids maybe somewhat disappointed for not leaving the birthday party goodie bags.
If you do decide to include party favors at your party, here are a couple of tips you may want to consider:
If you are doing a particular theme for your kids birthday party, then the goodie bags should preferably match your party theme.
Always prepare the birthday party goodie bags ahead of time.
The bags are better placed when visible by the exit door.
Always hand the party favors before the kids leave the birthday party, and never before. This gives a very nice close to your party and makes it memorable. It also helps the kids for whom goodbyes are a little difficult. Favors given during the party may create hard feelings if they are not identical. I have seen many party favor toys trampled underfoot. These favors were usually given out too early during the party.
You can always purchase pre-packaged birthday party goodie bags online. But purchasing the favors and putting the bags together yourself can be a lot of fun and will almost certainly save you money.
A great way to maximize the fun and the savings on birthday party goodie bags is to get the small bags from your local grocery store for very little money. And have the kids decorate them as part of the birthday party activities. You can also easily decorate them yourself before hand. Stock up on small toys, trinkets and sweets from you dollar store. This option is local and gives you plenty of flexibility.
Please always consider age range when buying small toys. I hope that your next party is filled with fun and joy.
