  • Well, crowns of course, for the Princess party ... and you could make simple beanbag frogs, out of quilting fabrics.

  • Not sure if this helps but my clothespin magnets and altered clothespins ar equite popular; The tutorial here:

    You can do them to fit your theme or just do birthday ones :)

    Other ideas:

    Kids decorate their own hats; bean bag tosses with fabric from those themes; birthday banners from fabrics based on those themes.

    Google "handmade birthday party ideas" and i bet you'll get tons :)
