5 Kids party bag ideas


1. Party bag creativity

There are endless ways to wrap, pack and present a great thank you party bag such as:
  • Using the party theme, choose party bags in the colours or design to match.
  • Using paper based products which are more environmentally friendly than plastic ones. Or how about filling glass jars or small metal buckets instead for something different?
  • Looking at creative ways to present some of the licensed themes such as Thomas the Tank Engine, My Little Pony, Spider-Man; try purchasing some licensed stickers, then adding one to the front of a coloured bag or noodle box and tying it up with ribbon.
  • Adding a party tag to the bag with your child’s personal message of thanks.

2. Party bag keepsake

  • Everyone likes to receive something to remind them of the fun time they had at the party. It doesn’t need to be expensive.
  • Some popular ideas include play jewellery, hair accessories, small packs of Lego or collectable figurines.

3. Party bag food

  • Traditionally party bags include a piece of birthday cake, party food or even a bag of lollies or a lollipop.
  • Just be aware that some children may have food intolerances and allergies, especially relating to nuts, dairy and gluten.

4. Party bag toys

  • It’s nice to include a small toy that they'll be able to keep long after the party finishes.
  • Parents are not keen on party bag items that go straight in the rubbish.
  • Popular items include rubber bouncy balls, stamps and bubbles.

  • Items that children can use, have educational value or require some thinking are very popular with adults and kids alike.
  • Items like stickers, bubble bath and colouring books are all great ideas.
