Favours for children

mebananamebanana Posts: 114
Probably quite a common question, but I'm struggling to find a good idea, so your thoughts would be appreciated.

We have our adults' favours sorted (homemade blackberry whisky) but I'm struggling what to get for the children.

We will have 2 18 month year olds (a boy and a girl) and a 8yr old boy. I can see lots of people saying colouring books etc - but this would be too young for the 8yr old and too old for the other two.

Help! image


  • How about a sock monkey for the little ones look up Bella bots sock monkeys on face book they are great
  • I found these magnetic face books that I very nearly bought... They'd be amazing for the little ones (I thought) and then I also found a book with "build your own tractors" in (out of card that you pushed out). I'm really sorry but I can't remember their titles or anything because I didn't end up getting them image
  • We have made goodie bags for all the kids!!

    Will go on their seats.

    They all have different things in their bags to suit them and their ages!

    We have done the same as Clare_Jeffery, made them each a goodie bag with age appropriate things in; ie sweets,colouring pads,stickers,toys,crayons etc

    We'll be making the children a goody bag each, probably in a stocking, as we're having a christmas wedding! I'm considering hiring a santa to entertain the kiddies during the drinks reception too!

    Hiring santa would be a good idea.In the goody bags put in some cholate coinsandif your budget can afford a little snow dome ones that you shake and the snow goes everyway
