Favored Party Favors
My kids absolutely love the party favors they get at their friends’ birthday parties. They tear open the bags before we even make it to the car and start digging into the candy. They are downright gleeful over the plastic toys, though they’re all usually lost in the bottomless pit of our car before we make it home. I, on the other hand, am not a huge fan of said favors. I prefer to decide if and when my kids get candy, and the toys seem like a waste. So when my 4-year-old daughter was celebrating her birthday this weekend with 20 of her classmates and friends, I wanted to think out of the bag, so to speak. I did some searching on the Web and found a great site, www.teacherwide.com, that has a huge array of books and other educational materials at a great discount. My daughter and I are both big fans of the Charlie and Lola series and we found a few different choices on the site. I was able to get two books per child…at the SAME price I would have spent on the party bag. Wrap them together with a big bow, and voila, a beautiful party favor that child and parent can both appreciate.
