24 Handmade Favors for Kid’s Parties

kid's party favors
I was first introduced to the wonder of the party favor at Jessica’s fifth birthday. I remember excitedly taking that Barbie cellophane bag filled with treats home and admiring all that was inside. To this day, party favors still make me happy and nothing is quite as fun as ones for children’s parties. Here are some fresh ideas for the next party you’ve got scheduled to throw.
