Fun Party Favours for Birthday Parties

We often get requests on our website, or through our Facebook Page, about fun Party Favours for birthday parties.

It seems that many people are looking for an alternative to the party bag full of lollies, but is still affordable.

Here are some great party favour ideas straight from mums who have shared their parties on our website!

Food Favours

Instead of a bag of lollies – why not make the favour a single food item that you have made yourself, or personalised for the party.

Love these ideas – little bags of Jelly Beans turned into butterflies for a Fairy, Very Hungry Caterpiller, Rainbow or Garden Party.  Wrap a cute cake pop in celophane or a small plastic bag and you have an instant party favour, like these Frozen cake pops.  And what Minecraft party goer wouldn’t like to go home with some Minecraft chocolate crackles to munch on!

Costume favours

If you are having a party theme that kids can dress up for – why not make part of the costume the favour that they take home?

In this Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party the homemade shell, pool noodle sword and mask were the party favours.

Or perhaps a hat that goes with the party theme.  Fairy wands or princess crowns also work really well as favours – these tulle wands are great!

Keepsake favours

A keepsake momento is a great favour for kids parties.  Perhaps the kids could make a necklace or bracelet, like at this Frozen party and then take it home.

Or what about this crayon idea from an earlier blog – see how to make them here


These hats were a real hit a Horse Riding Party and the girls loved that they could take them home!

Toy favours

Sometimes the favour could be something that the kids can play with at home.  This pool noodle pony was a Pony Party favour.  Play-Doh and bubbles are always popular for the little ones – just label them to suit your party theme. Or perhaps a pot of slime for the older ones!

There are some great tips on how to make play dough and slime  here:
