Just Add Mud! Bug-Inspired, Sensory Party Favor for Children +Free Printable Gift Tags

Bug Party Favors Printable

Summer--the season of children running free (maybe even wild)! No doubt many of you may find yourselves hosting a playdate or party for littles, and might be in need of a fun favor for them to take home with them or enjoy during the party/event. This was one of my go-to favorite favors to make for my younger students at the end of the year because it was affordable, non-candy, kept them occupied, developed sensory-motor skills, and got them interested in a nature subject: insects and bugs. Here's how I made them...

Each favor includes the following: floral twigs, a box of pudding mix, a handful of plastic/rubber bugs, and floral stones. Most of these items you can get through your local craft/hobby store or the dollar store at fairly cheap prices, which is great if you're working on a budget or having a large passe of children at your event. Also, can we just agree that children do not need any more overly sugary treats in their diets? Their long-suffering mamma will thank you that you sent them home with an activity to occupy their time rather than another bag of candy that leads to them jumping off her walls.

Divide up the materials into either glass jars (again, local craft or dollar stores--or buy in bulk online) or small plastic containers:
