When you want to spoil your little guests, when you don't want your little gift to end up in the trash and when you want to be a little original… what can we give? Here are a lot of great ideas!
A Bayard Jeunesse loot bag
Here's a smart gift! Bayard Jeunesse offers you 5 different surprise bags containing magazines Popi, Pomme d'api, My first I like to read, The explorers or The resourceful according to the tastes and age of the children. Order them at Bayardjeunesse.ca/surprises for $5.99 each (minimum order of 3). They will be delivered to your doorstep within days.
Plastic, wood or metal, whether in the shape of interlocking pretzels or snakes, puzzles serve a long time and are loved by all.
A Guessing Book
Obviously, riddle books amuse children a lot and bore them on many occasions. Small joke or trivia books also work.
A skipping rope
It's a timeless toy that gets kids moving, what more could you want? Classical skipping ropes are sold in several models, many of which are very beautiful. You can also buy rubber band games and teach them to play with their feet or with their hands by building bridges.
This is a toy that appeals to all children because they can do whatever they want with it. There are very affordable small pots of modeling clay in several shops, so it is possible to offer some to all your guests without breaking the bank.
A manicure set
The Mini Mani by Suncoat set will be a hit for your 3+ year old daughter's birthday party! The nail polishes are water-based, odorless, non-toxic and peelable. Parent-approved, the six rainbow-colored polishes come with self-adhesive decals that will keep guests busy during the party. ($15.50 each)
Balloons and instructions
To keep the party feeling going, add some long balloons to your bag and slip in instructions for them to learn how to do dogs or others animals. Children are always happy to learn this kind of trick to eventually impress the gallery.
Whether you buy them from a store or make themyourself, bath bombs are always great gifts for kids. Lush's bombs are amazing because they contain sparkles, rose petals and other surprises, but making them is cheaper.
Homemade Bath Bomb Recipe
Combine 1 cup baking soda, ½ cup cream of tartar, and ½ cup baking soda in a bowl. Add 2 tbsp. tablespoons of grapeseed or almond oil to solidify your bombs and add about thirty drops of your favorite essential oil. You can add a little food coloring before forming balls with your mixture or placing them in ice cube trays for a day or two.
Without spending a fortune, you can buy Lego characters in small bags found in supermarkets or pharmacies. Lego blocks are very trendy right now and no one will question this popular choice.
To give all the guests an unforgettable memory of the party, you can take photos during the party and put them on CDs with the music that played during the day. They will all have songs in common and memories of the party. You could also take a group photo at the start of the party and send someone to print several copies to hand out a frame of the group that was present.
A bite to eat
If presented well, you can also give something edible, a set of hot chocolate, for example, cookies or a piece of cake in a jar. If you did a cooking workshop, you can also give the appropriate tools so that the children can repeat the experiment.
