If you're looking for alternatives to pricey goodie bags, here are a few ideas that will make your guests - and wallet - happy.

Any Fun Party:
Take Polaroid or digital photos of each guest with the birthday child, and decorate cardboard picture frames, or make frames with popsicle sticks.

Hawaiian Party:
Decorate inexpensive plastic sunglasses with artificial flowers. String together more artificial flowers for one-of-a-kind leis. Also see -> Hawaiian Party Ideas

Royal Party:
Decorate paper crowns and make scepters from wooden dowels and plastic jewels.

Sleepover Party:

Decorate plastic light switch covers with stickers. Allow your young guests to embellish white pillowcases with fabric paints for a take-home sleepy surprise. Also see -> Slumber Parties

Spring or Garden Party:
Paint flower pots and include a pack of flower seeds for children to grow at home. Also see -> Garden Party Ideas

Survivor Party:
Send the children on a scavenger hunt equipped with compasses and trail mixes that they can make before the hunt. The compass will become a new favorite gadget, and
the trail mix is a lot healthier that candy treats. Also see -> Survivor Party Ideas

Tea Party:
Let the girls decorate straw hats with artificial flowers, which they can wear for the party, and later take home. Complete the party with candy necklaces. Also see -> Tea Party Ideas

Have fun!
