View Full Version : Party favors for 11 yos?

11-25-2016, 03:41 PM
Dds are turning 11 soon. They want a big party (inviting around 40, boys and girls- assuming quite a few won't make it). I've never let them do a whole grade party and since it's the last year of elementary we are going to do it. At roller skating rink. We haven't had a party in ages - do I still need party favors? If so, what is a good/easy suggestion for fifth graders?

I don't think you need anything.

I don't think you need anything and this may be too much for a large party, but the last 2 parties my 11yo DS attended gave $5 gift cards out.

For that many kids and at 11 yrs, I'd do a full size candy bar. The last few years, I've done $5 GC, but our parties have been much smaller. My kids (10 & 12) don't always get party favors anymore and it's no big deal to them, but personally, I'd feel weird not giving one out at our parties.

Thank you all!

I'm sure it's not necessary, but I bet the kids would love to get something. How about a candy bar and something like this to go with it? https://www.amazon.com/Squeeze-Emotional-Holiday-Stocking-Stuffer/dp/B00OV4L5K0/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1480118165&sr=8-3&keywords=emoji+ball

Or maybe this: https://www.amazon.com/Balloon-Helicopter-Party-Favor-Powered/dp/B01C1VXSZY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1480118062&sr=8-1-spons&keywords=helicopter+balloon&psc=1

With that many, a full size candy bar is fine, that's still 40.00 worth of favors on top of paying for the party. I wouldn't give anything else, it'll probably get tossed.

I wouldn't give anything. We did a whole class roller skating party a few months ago with no favors. I don't think anyone missed them.

I don't think Party favors are necessary but I do think they are still fun at that age. How about a bunch of glow in the dark stuff (assuming it's dim in the skating rink)? You could do bracelets, necklaces, glasses, etc. You could even do a little glow in the dark party bar and let guests pick two or three items.

Vote nothing. If you feel you must a candy bar.

We didn't do favors at DD1's 11th birthday party. Nobody seemed to miss them!
