Everyone enjoys Christmas time, especially children. For the little ones, this is the time of pure joy, happiness, and of course, lots of favors and presents. Throwing a Christmas party for children will surely make things even more joyful and memorable. However, topping the kid’s imaginations and putting smiles on their faces can be a difficult task if you don’t have any idea where to start. Luckily for you, there are plenty of ideas out there that will help turn your Christmas party into an event the children will never forget, and the below party favor ideas for children’s Christmas parties are just some of them.
Decorate-your-own Christmas cookies
Bake a few batches of some plain Christmas cookies and place them in a bowl. Put out a few more plates and bowls and fill them with common baking additions such as chocolate chips, colorful candies, sprinkles, and more.
You can then make a big batch of icing that will provide a sticky coating for the cookie decoration. To make things even more fun for the kids, provide as many varieties of icing colors and edible decorations as possible.
While this may come across as an activity, it can double as a form of a children’s party favor too because kids can always take the cookieshome, especially if they leave the party stuffed from a hearty Christmas meal. Then they can enjoy their home made party favor for dessert later.
Another great idea for your children’s Christmas party are custom woven lanyardsthat come in many patterns, designs, and colors.
Get at least as many colorful lanyards as there are children at the party and have their names printed on each lanyard. In addition, you can provide them with cute holiday ID badges that feature famous Christmas characters to go with the lanyard.
Custom-shaped Christmas crayons
Children are fans of colors and, of course, coloring. Get some single color crayons and Christmas-themed silicone molds in various shapes like Christmas lights, stars, Santas, Rudolphs, etc.
Place the crayons in the molds and melt them in the oven to get Christmas-shaped crayons.
Additionally, you can make them into a gift by packaging them in resealable bags and decorating the bags.
Ornaments with sweets
Acquire some clear, empty plastic ornaments and fill them up with different chocolate candies, nerds, and other popular treats. You may also tell the children to fill their own ornaments with sweets of their choice.
Once done, you can then provide the kids with different colored ribbons they can use to decorate their ornaments so they can take them home and hang them on their Christmas trees.
Custom Christmas hats
Provide each of the kids with hats that feature famous Christmas characters like Santa, Rudolph, or even Santa’s little elves. This will definitely spark up the Christmas spirit for everyone, including the kids.
Additionally, consider personalizing these hats with sewed-on names of the kids attending the Christmas party to make the favor more unique.
Christmas-themed arts and crafts kits
It’s amazing how kids can appreciate even the simplest kind of art kit. They love to color, draw, and design whatever they can get their hands on. So, in the spirit of Christmas, why not provide
arts and crafts kits that the children are sure to love for weeks or months?
Examples of arts and crafts kits you can give as favors include paint-it-yourself toys or kits that let kids make their own amazing Christmas cards with glitter, ribbons, buttons, and more.
Christmas party favors don’t have to cost a lot to make kids happy
It’s normal to think that the best favors are the ones that come at a steep price. This isn’t the case at all, especially when you’re dealing with children. It doesn’t take much to make them happy. As long as you provide them with items that offer hours of fun and encourage interacting with other kids, then you’re all set.
