Birthday Party favors are small gifts given out to birthday guests as a "thank you" for attending. They can be given out during the birthday party, as they are leaving or both! Party favors can be items used during the party or crafts to make and take home.
They can also be small toys or gifts that relate to the birthday party theme and are given out in goody bags as the guests leave the party.
Pinata candy is a good party favor and can be given out during the party. Add a few small toys or stickers as the kids are leaving.
Party Favors are usually one or two larger toys, a few pieces of candy, stickers or smaller toy items related to your theme.
