    Default Another goody bag question

    DS is turning 6 and he is having a Star Wars themed party at the bowling alley. We will be having 15 -20 kids, mostly boys. I would like to give each child one nicer item instead of the favor bag. I want it to be something that they will enjoy and/or use. It doesn't have to relate to the theme but it would be great if it did. Does anyone have any ideas?

    I was at a party a few weeks ago and the favor was a gift card to the local movie theatre taped to a box of candy. I thought that was nice, since its so cold outside.

    Is there anything in particuliar the age group is into? Do you have a favorite candy shop/ice cream shop in town? What about an open gym/bounce house/arcade? You could do a gift card there.

    We have given Staw Wars buildables. It is like a pack of trading cards but each pack contains plastic punch out mini Star Wars ships to build (sorry if not explaining it well). Target usually has them in the trading card section.

    Not sure about the age range, but how about giving each boy a Star Wars lego box. They can take it home and make it.

    What about a book? BHFO Books has a bunch, including this one for $1.25:

    Some of the Amazon books are decent prices. This one is $4 and is part of the buy 3, get 1 free promotion:

    We received inflatable light sabers at a party, and they were a big hit.

    Thanks for the suggestions. The books are a great idea. I wish I would have ordered more of the Star Wars pop-up books when they were $5 on Amazon.

    I saw that they have Star Wars thermos sipper cups at Target but they are $10. If I could find them for a few bucks less that might be a good option.

    Do you live near a Lego store? They had magnet sets (3 pack) for $5 and SW key chains for $1.48. I think the keychains are on-line too http://shop.lego.com/SalesAndDeals/

    Thanks for the ideas. I might check out the magnet set. We have a store about 40 minutes away. I thought the key chains were cute but DH wanted to know what a 6 year old would use a key chain for.

    Lots of kids use them to decorate and personalize back packs, lunch boxes, etc.
