Every kid I know thinks loot bags are the best part of the party, but I hate filling bags with stuff that I know will be tossed aside after 10 minutes of play. Childhood 101 has put together an amazing link roundup featuring 25 loot bag ideas for children’s parties. Many of the suggestions can be created even if you’re on a tight budget, such as jars of homemade sparkle play dough with cute cookie cutters or homemade driver’s licenses paired with Matchbox cars. There are suggestions for both boys and girls, although most of the ideas seem to be geared towards younger children.
My personal favorite idea is the books with homemade bookmarks and bookplates, since I never miss an opportunity to encourage a child to develop a love of reading! What types of party favors do your children enjoy receiving?
