    Default Party favors for 11 yos?

    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.

    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-Emoti...rds=emoji+ball

    Or maybe this: https://www.amazon.com/Balloon-Helic...+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.
