Any ideas for party favors for 11-13 year old boys?  We are getting the girls nail polish, lip gloss etc....but what do boys that age like that is appropriate to give as party favors/goody bags?  Would just candy be ok?

You could do things like whoopee cushions, dog tags, yoyos, cool shoelaces, those gross looking fake teeth, fake mustaches, etc. Most boys that age like anything gross or weird. Lol

Hmmm....maybe I shouldnt do them?  It has been a while since we threw a party and the last few we have just had girls...and those are easy to do goody bags for.

lol... We are going to do "glamour shots" for the girls once the boys leave (girls are spending the night) but that would be funny to do them and let the boys wear the fake mustaches and teeth!  I might have to do that!

I never thought of doing glamour shots! That's a great idea!

Well its for my daughter and she chose girly jungle things (like zebra print, cheetah print leopard print, with pink and purple mixed in.)  I think they are a little old to give toy animals too though...lol

Okay so.............let me throw out some "stuff" to think through if only for it to spawn other ideas!


Flash drives - I just saw some that look like animals. They're not $1.00 favors but if you don't have a LOT of boys it may be worth considering


Camoflauge - -instead of animal print - - for the boys. A lot easier to find t-shirts, baseball caps, water bottles, etc. in camo print.


Squirt guns -- don't laugh, even BIG kids like them!

More on the theme --- add "explorers" to your thought process and open up ideas like:

compass (working of course and not the cheap toy)

back pack (camoflauge of course) - they can come from Oriental Trading.

canteen

magnifying glass
