4. Picture Frames
You could put photos of you and your friends inside these frames, or you could leave them empty and let your guests use them however they’d like.

You could also go with something more creative by purchasing frames with funky patterns.

Party Favors For Kids
One of my favorite things to do as a kid was to collect stickers. The best was when you had those sheets with different scenes on them, inviting you to place whichever stickers you wanted on them. Kids have incredible imaginations, and you can foster their creativity by giving them sticker books to take home. Plus, it’ll be inexpensive for you.
8. Fun-Fact Goody Bags
Kids are always learning new things. Cater to their sense of wonder with these fun-fact goody bags. If you’re sticking gummy worms in the bags, for example, include a paper teaching the kids some cool things about earthworms.
Why not send the kids home with a wonderful keepsake and something they can learn from? Depending on the theme of your party, you could grab a book or two to match it. You could also visit stores like T.J. Maxx for amazing deals that’ll save you money. If your kids don’t care for traditional books, you could choose coloring or activity books.
