I know we have a lot of readers that are here for the 31 Days Bible series, so sorry if children’s party favors are not your penchant! I’m hoping to get another post in the series up sometime this week.
I LOVE play based learning, children’s parties, gift giving, and nature. So last year, for my daughter’s birthday, I thought it would be fun to give some fun and educational party favors to her sweet friends (yes, I’ve been meaning to write this post for a year now). Favors that (hopefully) wouldn’t get tossed in the trash after a couple of days, but that would inspire their curiosities and/or be used again and again. I decided to order muslin bags and personalize them with stamps for each of the kids. We’ve had a couple of these muslin bags for a while and my kids use them to collect nature finds or for nature treasure hunts.
Inside each favor bag we included:
- A cookie-cutter bird feeder (wrapped in wax paper bags that I had on hand). Directions for the bird feeders are here.
- A magnifying glass. We used these ones.
- A bird warbler whistle, like these.
- A granola bar, bubble gum, and fruit leather.
