    Default Non candy pinata filler ideas?

    I have stickers, note pads, bouncy balls (debating those b/c I am afraid they will hurt coming out), rings, jelly bracelets, squirt balls and maybe something else. There are 10 kids. Is that already enough stuff or should I get more? I will add a little bit of candy but not much.

    ETA- the kids are 5 so I am not worried about choking hazards.

    Sounds great to me!! I think the bouncy balls would be just fine, too. How about some temp tatoos? I hear those are really popular for that age, correct me if I'm wrong, though! You could also add individual bags of Goldfish or other snacks that aren't sugary.

    We have temp. tattoos for them to wear during the party. :) I love the idea of wrapping up healthier snacks. Perfect!!!!

    On America's Funniest Videos I saw a family that put veggies in their pinata...

    I am so doing that when Jack gets older.

    we've also been to parties where they include fruit snacks, yogos, and small packs of cookies (teddy grahams, TJ individually packed cookies, etc.).

    Whistles, crayons, tiny party-favor toys (they sell little packets of them at target), New Year's-type noise makers...

    Yeah, I have been meaning to scope out that aisle at Target. I did hit the party store. There seemed to be some promising stuff at Target when I glanced that way.



    Thanks for all the ideas!!

    Bandaids? J and friends are obsessed with them. With his group they would love it!
