What Type of Summer Treat Should I Use?
Choosing a summer treat to give really depends on the event. To select the perfect favor, think simple and small. You certainly don’t need to go overboard with your favor idea.
Here are some of my favorite summer party favor ideas that I’ve used over the years.
- A bottle of bubbles
- Pair of sunglasses (affiliate)
- Mini inflatable beach ball (affiliate)
- Pinwheels (affiliate)
- Sand Buckets and Shovel (affiliate)
- Tic Tac Toe Game (affiliate)
You could also choose an art theme for your summer treat idea. A small set of sidewalk chalk, a new package of watercolor paints (affiliate) or crayons and a coloring book are all creative ideas kids will love.
If you decide to give a bottle of bubbles for your summertime treat, dress them up with our Free Printable Summer Bubble Wrappers. They’re a great way to kick off summer vacation.
When making my summer party favor bags for this post, I filled them with a variety of summer favors. I included a kazoo (since it’s summer and you’ve got to make some noise), a classic Slinky (affiliate) and party blower. I attached the kraft paper bag with some watermelon baker’s twine (affiliate). Then, I added the Free Printable Happy Summer Tag for a sweet touch.
You Will Need:
Kraft paper bags (affiliate)
Watermelon Baker’s Twine (affiliate)
Assortment of Summer Favors (see ideas above)
Mini Clothespins (affiliate)
1. Fill your Kraft favor bag with an assortment of summer themed favors. Check out the list above for some ideas on good summer party favors.
2. Clip the top of your bag closed with a mini clothespin.
3. Tie a piece of twine around the middle of the favor bag.
4. Print and cut out your Free Printable Happy Summer Tags. Punch a small hole in the top using a mini hole punch (affiliate). Attach to the bag for easy hanging.
