  • Personally I prefer 1 or 2 bigger items to a bag full of small trinkets. For my DD's brthday I just got everyone their own bubble gun ($3) it came with the bubbles and batteries and turned into the entertainment for the kids, so I killed 2 birds with one stone. As hot as it is now, water guns could be fun (2 or 3 for $1) and you could get a larger one for the birthday boy. Set around a few buckets of water balloons to go with and you have instant entertainment for adults and kids alike. You could also do, bottles of bubbles, sunglasses (think dollar tree)....could get some puff paint or stickers and let the kids decorate them, ring pops (ok for little and big kids), stickers or tatoos.

  • My kids have received/given things like bubbles, pencils, mixed candy, tattoos, matchbox cars, rings, stickers, little notepads, hair ties, tops, small trinkets like that mostly. Kids love them. I don't think you can go too wrong no matter what you buy.

  • I usually get some candy, yo-yo's (small ones), small play dough cans, and things like that. Party city has tons to pick from starting at 10 cents.

  • I like one large thing as opposed to 10 pieces of plastic stuff & candy. One year I got Color Wonder finger paint packs on sale. This year the kids helped with making Tie-Dye t-shirts & took them home in plastic zip-loc bags. You can get white t-shirts in assorted sizes (return any extra), a kit with several colors & a bunch of rubber bands. Don't let the kids touch them. They just say what colors they like & you have gloves on & squirt & twist. Include washing directions. It is neat when I see kids who were at his party & they are wearing the shirts months later.

    Another idea I've seen is gather up a whole bunch of different stuff, including toys your child doesn't want, & give out tokens for winning games etc. Then the kids get to choose what they get. They really like that. My kid picked out sidewalk chalk (which he also had at home) & was thrilled.
