Birthday parties for toddlers tend to be a big deal even if the birthday boy or girl may not know what the celebration is about!
They spend a joyful evening of fun and games with their friends. For the parents it is a celebration of how much joy children bring to their lives. And how can the celebration be complete without cute little party favours for the guests.
There are plenty of options available for birthday party favours but it can be a little confusing when most children attending the party are likely to be quite young in age. With that in mind, we’ve compiled a list of the best return gifts for your child’s birthday party. Most children like them, they are easily available in most stores and shouldn’t be too expensive
Crayons & Colouring Books
Colouring is an activity that younger children usually enjoy. Crayons and colouring books are therefore a great idea as a birthday return gift for kids. You can choose a small set of colours. Just make sure you buy a brand that is non-toxic and child safe. Toddlers frequently tend to put things in their mouths as you well know!
As toddlers have enough dexterity to handle large puzzle pieces, simple puzzles with 4-8 pieces can be a wonderful return gift for them. A jigsaw puzzle is also something they can take apart and then redo and can provide hours of entertainment. It is also a safe toy that is not likely to cause any harm to small children.
Toddlers love splashing around in their bathtub. Imagine how happy they would be if you gave them a small collection of toys that they could play with, in their bath. A collection of brightly coloured bath toys would thus make a great gift for guests at a toddler’s birthday party. Choose medium sized toys, too small and they could pose a choking hazard for small children.
Chocolate Party Favours
Chocolates are the one gift that almost everybody likes. These days you can also order customised chocolate return gifts with your little one’s photograph and name as birthday return gifts. It is a unique way to mark the event. They make a great party favour for your guests and will also serve as a memento or keepsake of your child’s special day.
Magnetic letters in bright colours are another great option when you are looking for birthday party favours for toddlers. Most toddlers are fascinated by letters and numbers. and colourful magnetic letters can be an exciting way to introduce them. The little ones can spell out small words or even their names on the refrigerator.
6. Modelling Clay
Modelling compound is also a very good toy for toddlers and makes a great party favour. These are available in many bright colours and a variety of pack sizes so you can choose the one that suits your needs. They can spend hours creating interesting new shapes and designs with the clay and at the same time develop their creativity and imagination.
