More Favor Ideas: Penguin Party

Squeaker was obsessed with penguins (still is) and chose to have a penguin party for her 3rdbirthday. It was lots of fun, but the favors were my favorite part!

Inside these cute little black bags, decorated with foam stickers by Bridget (thanks Bridget!), were detailed instructions on how to bathe like a penguin:

Included with the instructions were homemade bath salts, penguin shaped soap, organic fish shaped fruit snacks (all consumable/non-clutter, earth friendly/non-toxic, and fun), and these penguin washcloths found at Target (useful- all kids bathe!, earth friendly, and fun). All 3 of my goals were met! The only thing I would do differently next time is to wrap everything inside the washcloths, so I wouldn't have to use paper bags.

This was lots of fun to make and cost only a few dollars per favor. The guests seemed to like it- some of the kids went home and jumped straight into the bath, and every time the kids use their washcloths, they can remember Squeaker's fun party.
