Toddler Party Ideas: Great Party Favors and Game Prizes for Children 18 months and Up
Children love to receive goody bags. They are happy with just about anything...the hardest part is to find items that are age appropriate. Be sure to always read the packaging on each item to determine what is safe.
Goody Bag FillersBubbles
Bubbles are fun for all ages. You can print your own label with the child's name, a picture or the occasion it is celebrating and glue it around the regular bottle to make it personalized.
Party themed color books make another great goody bag filler. You can find these at craft and Dollar Stores.
Mini Play Dough. They are about 2 inches across and 1 inch high. A couple of each color help fill a bag nicely. If you made a round sticker you could personalize this with your child's name or birthday.
These are small games we found at Target and Craft stores for $1. The item on the left is a matching game like Memory and on the right is a Tic Tac Toe game with cute wooden markers to play with.
Cute notepads with colored newsprint. Perfect for even the youngest toddler. Pair it with a box of washable crayons and you have a set that will make any child happy.
Mini Board Books
This is a great idea for parties of multi age children.
These were in the girl's Easter Basket and was such a cute colorful toy that they are really enjoying.
Coloring Sheets with Markers
These were sets with different themes, Winnie the Pooh, Spiderman and Bugs. They come packaged with a small marker set and were $1 each.
Can't go wrong with basic supplies like pencils, crayons and glue sticks!
Mini Photo Books
Miniature photo books are cute! Print out a favorite picture of the birthday child or a group photo of the party, print and insert and into photo album. Be sure to take a lot of photos at the party and email them later!
Stickers and Mini Sticker Coloring Books
Cute mini sticker color books are another perfect goody bag item or select from the many foam sticker themes. Bag some in clear ziplocks labelled with a cute sticker or a clear poly bag tied with a bow. These are great for long car rides, restaurant waits. Parents will love them too!
Stamps in a box make easy goody bag fillers. These were purchased from a Party Store. The rolling stamps are another idea that older toddlers might enjoy.
Here is another inexpensive idea for some fun! Modelling clay in various colors.
Always a great item to have for that car ride or long restaurant wait. Cute mini notebooks can be found all over in various colors, themes and sizes. Some craft stores have them for $1 and change selection continuously.
Bath Puppets or Puppet Washcloths
Great one for little toddlers and older toddlers alike.
Special Message Candy Bars
Print your own wrapper! Print your child's name, picture, birthday or theme on the wrapper. Remove the original paper wrapper and replace with yours (leave on the foil wrapper. Secure with non-toxic Glue Stick or Elmer's Glue or a piece of Scotch tape.
Older Toddler Party FavorsPuzzles
Small jigsaw puzzles are great goody bag fillers for older toddlers. You might even be able to find one that matches the theme of the party.
We found card sets matching party themes at the large party stores and some craft stores. This is a set with Diego as the theme for Crazy Eights and Go Fish
Mini Craft Projects These are boxes with a simple craft project like stringing foam beads, decorating a notepad. All items needed are in the box. We found these great for long car rides and airplane rides. Great for a $1
Glitter Glue and Special Punches are great craft gifts.
These are great for older toddlers. Bath capsules which have animals inside. Silly Putty which is a toy we remember I am sure!
This is a little thumbprint activity book! Comes with stamp pad and mini-pen. This was given as a gift to the girls and I thought it would make a great favor. Tie this up in a clear poly bag and you've got a cute favor!
Sidewalk chalk is perfect for Spring and Summer. Colorful chalk in a clear poly bag makes a cute favor.
Jump Ropes Most are long so this is definitely for an older toddler.
Flashlights There are a few designed specifically for children. Perfect for those who are a little scared of the dark.
Gift Certificates These are always welcome and usually come in denominations as low as $1 from restaurants and toy stores.
Many pre packaged party favors are NOT suitable for ages under three so we had to select our items individually rather than from the party section. The list below are some of the toddler party ideas we found that were appropriate from about ages 18 months and up. Almost all of these items were a $1.00 and less.
