Sesame Street Party: favors

This will be the last post on the Sesame Street Birthday Party I threw for my little 2 year old. This one will focus on the party favors.

I pre-filled the loot bags with a couple of sesame street stickers. I bought them at DollarTree and then cut the sheets into more pieces. They also got a fruit snack. During the party (before I handed out the favors) I labeled each child's bag with an address label with their name on it. If you are going to have a loot bag label them otherwise you get kids crying over which one is their. Last year I prelabeled them, but then some kids didn't show up so I had a lot extra. So my advice is to take a few minutes during the party to do it.

After games I let them pick out a prize and then at the end I let them choose 3 more prizes. Here is what I had available.

- Cars
- Tops
- Slinky
- Glow sticks
- Plastic Snakes
- Wands

In addition to the little toys they got through out the party each child also got a piece of chalk.

The chalk was a summer product at Walmart. So in January I was able to get them $.50 for a 4 pack! The little baggies were leftovers from last years puppy party and the labels were free printables from On One Hand. She has different numbers so you can base it on the age of the Birthday boy/girl!

The adults weren't left out either. Each family got to take home a cookie mix in a jar.
Wow horrible picture

Here is the recipe for the cookie mix just add one layer at a time packing lightly to keep it from mixing.

  • 1 cup - all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon - baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon - baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon - salt
  • 1 cup - firmly packed Brown Sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups - oats
  • 1 cup - chocolate chips

I found that you didn't need to pack it as tight as other recipes say. The ones that I did pack had a lot of headspace. After that I just cut up from fabric from my stash and tied with ribbon.
I made the cute cookie monster label you can get print  here. On the back of Cookie is the instructions to bake. (For personal use only). I think these would be cute for any gift not just Sesame Street themed. Cookie Monster is loved by all!

Hope you got some ideas for your party!
