If you have ever thrown a child’s birthday party, you know the expenses of all the components brought together to throw the “perfect” event. After you’ve gotten your decorations, your food, your entertainment, and all your invites, you’ve accumulated a good lump sum of cash! You now realize after inviting your child’s entire class, family members and neighbour’s that you STILL have loot bags! Loot bags always seem to add up to be quite expensive. Parents have now found various ways to bypass and come up with their own creative ideas so that children are no longer getting the ordinary loot bag, dollar store regulars. Following are new ideas for party favors for a variety of different types of themed events!
