What To Put In Goody Bags?

We have all been there. You go to a birthday party, and your kid comes home with a goody bag full of well…junk. We are talking the cheaply made ‘toys’ that fall apart after about two seconds.

Keeping it all the way real. As a busy mama, you simply do not have the time or space for another thing to come home with you and fall apart.

That is why I rounded up a great list of party favor ideas that are not junk. Which will save you a ton of time when planning your kids next birthday party!

These ideas contain toys they can actually use, imaginative play items, and general party favors that your kids will actually love.
