Parental thread for suggesting birthday party bag items


#1

Stuff you’ve seen or you’ve bought for your own kids that you thought were the best thing to put in the party bag for all the kids at the end.

I don’t like this sort of world we have. When I was a kid a party at someone’s house involved a cake and the ability to eat unlimited sweet things being about as good as it got, but these days it’s different.

So, ideas of stuff for me to order, please.
*the children will mainly be 3 or 4.

Thank you.

Miniature mushroom logs.

I don’t even understand if this is a joke thing or a real thing.


#4

Slice of cake
One of those party whistles
A balloon
Those foam glider/bird things
Mini crayon/colouring books
One of those mini-bubble blowing tubes


#5

Cheers.


#6

A hard boiled egg

Oh, or you could have the party be a craft/making one, and then the kids take those home with them.


#8

A hard boiled detective novel


#9

So much scope for MESS though.


#10

bottle of hard water (boiled)


#11

This is already not what is going to happy, but cheers.


#12

Kids love mess though.


#13

Christ, maybe @Slicky will get here before I have to start giving out dubious titles to CERTAIN PEOPLE


#14

That’s obviously not what is going to happy, Theo.


#15

I was more thinking of the post-party clean up nightmare


#16

Theo loves glitter though


#17

What IS going to happy Theo?


#18

It’s what he says to coworkers before visiting the pub


#19

What’s wrong with my suggestions?

Some people are SO ungrateful.
