Do-it-yourself birthday party favors can be a lot of fun for parents and kids. There are so many favors that toddlers can help make too, such as watercolor snowflakes and noisemakers. Let’s take a look at simple and fun do-it-yourself favors for the next toddler’s birthday party in Doral .
Cut out several identical circles from cardboard or corrugated paper. Set aside two circles for every noisemaker, and decorate one side of each circle. Glue the two undecorated sides together with a popsicle stick in between. Punch holes along the edge and tie a length of waxed twine into each one. Tie a colorful bead or button on the other ends. This favor can be decorated by the toddlers as an added craft during the birthday party.
Give kids a sweet treat and a favor at the same time with a cookie holder. Use parchment paper to keep cookies or small treats fresh, and place them into paper towel tubes. Wrap the tube with colorful crepe paper and tie each end with ribbon and a name tag.
Give each child their own birthday party hat by gathering several pieces of patterned paper. Cut out 12-inch squares and fold them in half. Cut slits down the open side and stop about two inches away from the fold. Use a pencil to curl the strips so they bounce and move. Make a hat by bringing the two ends together and stapling into a circle. Punch two holes and string with ribbon for a fun party hat.
A mermaid or ocean themed birthday party would not be complete without a seashell favor. Give each child a seashell to decorate with colored sand, beads, and glitter. This favor can be used as a nice memento or paperweight.
Give each child an oversized coffee filter to color with markers. Fold it over several times. Each child can cut different shapes with safety scissors. Unfold the filter, spritz with water, and watch the colors blend together.
