Give your child fond memories of the parties where her friends were given candy- and toy-filled party bags to take home. She and her guests won't remember that they only got one turn to put the nose on the clown or that you ran out of cake. They will remember that you packed the bags with candy and theme-related gifts.
Fill red and white popcorn boxes with chocolate coins, giant lollipops, Fortune Fish that tell the future, tattoos and rubber chicken key chains; or, put circus peanuts, sea monkeys, finger puppets, balls and circus ducks into a black top hat. Either way, the fillers will remind the kids of the fun they had at your child's party.
Put homemade glitter gel and bath salts, eye masks, hair clips, lip gloss and headbands inside of purses to give out after your spa party. For older children, place candles, chocolate candy, travel-size bottles of body wash, deodorant, shampoo and conditioner inside a small hat box and tie a ribbon around it.
Pig and cow footballs should be put inside of metal baskets with plush farm animals, Chicken Feed gum and collapsible farm animals. Another idea is to fill cowboy hats with bendable farm animals, squeezable pigs, bandannas and gummy worms.
Pails containing water guns, mini bottles of water, water balloons, sunglasses and handheld water games make fun-filled party fillers. Put snow-making kits, packs of Gold Fish crackers, goggles and Splash balls in a tote to pass out at the end of the party.
Place magic cards, glow sticks, flashing yo-yos, beanbag rabbits and Silly Putty in small satchels in order to send the partygoer home with magic. Fill treat bags with invisible ink pens, disappearing eggs, magic scarfs and chocolate bunnies.
Place capes, comic books, flashlights and candy rings into grab bags; or, fill them with boomerangs, superhero wristbands, spider bouncy balls and Wolverine claws. Green Lantern's ring, Incredible Hulk balloons and Batman watches also make great gifts.
