The baking theme provides lots of inspiration for the party details, including the favors. You can find a number of baking-themed gifts to give your party guests.
Aprons work well as favors because the kids can use them at the party to keep their clothes clean. Then they can take the aprons home and wear them whenever they cook with their parents. For inexpensive aprons, head to your local craft store. They often have plain kids’ aprons in different colors. Add each guest’s name on an apron with fabric paint.
Another useful favor idea is to give each child baking tools. This might include a rolling pin, mixing spoon or measuring utensils. The kids can also use this favor option at the party as part of the baking process. Look for fun colors, or paint the handles before the party to make them more appealing to the kids.
Cookbook or Recipe Cards
Want to inspire the party guests to bake more at home? Why not send them home with a cookbook? You can find kids’ cookbooks at most book stores. Or you can make your own cookbooks by compiling several kid-friendly recipes, printing and binding them. Another option is to give each child a set of decorative recipe cards. You can write a few recipes on some of the cards, or leave them all blank for the kids to fill in.
Another option is to send the kids home with a kit that they can use for a baking project at home. You might include some premade cookie dough, cookie cutters and sprinkles. Or a cake mix, cupcake liners and frosting. This favor option gives the kids most of the items they need to go home and bake even more.
If you don’t want to spend a lot of money on favors, send the kids home with extra baked goods as their party treats. Have the kids bake enough cupcakes for each person to have two, for example. They can decorate both, eat one at the party and take the other home as a favor.
