We are going to WDW with our 3 y.o. but coming home after to celebrate his 3rd bday by throwing him a party and inviting all his school friends. Was thinking of bringing back some goodies to put in "loot bags" for his friends to take away after the party.
Any good suggestions for not too pricey goodies to fill those bags with? We were thinking pens (that you can buy in a set, so not so costly) then his classmates can get a different pen each, and maybe some other stuff like buttons etc.
WOuld love some more good ideas so we can look out for them during our trip there..
If you're gonna be in Downtown Disney at all, there's a shop there where everything is $10 or less. That's an easy way of making sure you get cheap stuff. I'm sure there will be all sorts of little things you could choose from.
Kids love stickers, so see if you can find some of those to include. Pens are a good idea. I was about to suggest those little plastic figures, but they might be too small for three-year-olds (choking hazard). If you find coloring books, maybe you can rip them apart to include one or two pages per bag (unless they are cheap enough to get one for each kid). Remember not to go too overboard, as kids this young prob'ly won't play with the stuff for too long, anyway.
If you have extra snack credits you can get lots of things!
The Rice Krispies that are shaped like Mickey
they have lollipops in the shape of Mickey heads for under $4 that come in a pack of 3-5
There's bags of cookies in the shape of characters
In the food courts they have Mickey Head shaped straws that cost 49 cents
There are places that offer souvenier cups with a purchase of a drink - you could save these up to use at the party. We also took home a bunch of the free Disney napkins that are at every CS food place.
We saved up the black Mickey Head dishes that the childrens meals come in and served the cake and ice cream in them then let the children take them home
As you walk through the world we were given a lot of stickers from CM's and we saved those up and added them to the bags
Also, depending on where you're staying, we were given Disney magazines and balloons every night from the front desk - we saved the Mickey Mouse shaped weights and re-used them at the party. We also collected enough of the magazines and coloring books to hand out as part of the goodie bags.
There's conservation pins in Animal Kingdom that you can make a donation of $1 and get a pin - not only is it a tax write off (although a tiny one), it can also be part of the goody bag
You can buy a set or lot of bean bags from Disney on Ebay and they're really cheap (about 50 cents to $1 each). Then everyone can get their favorite character
Get character signatures and you can do almost anything with them!
Something we did for my DD's class was buy a couple of bags of chocolate coins that have different disney characters on them. Her class loved it! It was not that expensive...I think there is 10 or 12 "coins" in a bag and we only had to buy a couple of bags so each child would get one. she loved passing them out at school. Those would be nice to throw in the goody bags. Kids love candy!
