Birthday Party Fun: Goodie Bag Alternatives - Articles Surfing
If you're looking for alternatives to pricey goodie bags, here are a few ideas that will make your guests--and wallet--happy.
Any Fun Party:
Take Polaroid photos of each guest with the birthday child, and decorate cardboard picture frames, or make frames with popsicle sticks.
Decorate inexpensive plastic sunglasses with artificial flowers. String together more artificial flowers for one-of- a-kind leis.
Decorate paper crowns and make scepters from wooden dowels and plastic jewels.
Decorate plastic light switch covers with stickers. Allow your young guests to embellish white pillowcases with fabric paints for a take-home sleepy surprise.
Spring or Garden Party:
Paint flower pots and include a pack of flower seeds for children to grow at home.
Send the children on a scavenger hunt equipped with compasses and trail mixes that they can make before the hunt. The compass will become a new favorite gadget, and the trail mix is a lot healthier that candy treats.
Let the girls decorate straw hats with artificial flowers, which they can wear for the party, and later take home. Complete the party with candy necklaces.
