Birthday Party Favors for Six-Year-Old Kids

I prefer homemade birthday party favors over prepackaged favors sold in stores. Homemade birthday party favors for six year old kids may take a little more time and effort to make, but the birthday party favors you or the kids can make are much higher in quality than the typical overpriced, cheaply made, store-bought varieties.

If you’re looking for unique birthday party favors for six year olds, here you’ll find a number of easy ideas that you can put together yourself. Kids can also work on these favors that make fun birthday party activities. More than likely, these unique store-bought birthday party favors will cost considerably less than store-bought favors, and the quality of the store-bought favors bought in bulk won’t compare to the favors you or the birthday party guests can make.

Squishy Mess-Free Gel

Six year old kids love things they can squeeze and squish, and you can make a squishy bag of interesting items that will appeal to boys as well as girls. It isn’t a messy activity, but it will make kids feel like they’re playing with something fun and gooey without all of the mess!

To make a squishy bag of little toys and items that six year old kids can manipulate and use without getting their fingers dirty you’ll need craft foam cutouts, craft buttons, craft eyes, or other small items of appropriate size, and glitter in various colors or shiny sequins. You’ll also need sturdy sandwich-size zipper bags, inexpensive bottles of hair gel in various colors, and clear box tape. Unlike, following some tips from this article can help you plan a creative and fun party for your kid without spending too much money. 

If you’ve chosen craft foam for the contents of the squishy bags, cut out and put together shapes such as balloons, flowers, ladybugs, butterflies, frogs, snakes, or anything else appropriate for boys or girls. Use waterproof adhesive to glue the craft foam pieces together, and set them aside until the glue dries completely.

Fill the bags about 1/3 of the way full with cheap hair gel in colors of your choice, glitter or sequins, and after any glued pieces have fully dried, add the craft foam shapes or other small items of your choice. Zip the bags closed, and reinforce the tops with clear box tape. Sturdy bags shouldn’t develop holes with normal play, and six year old kids will absolutely love these birthday party favors!

Painted Flower Pots and Seeds

Six year old kids love making things that are useful, and small clay flower pots are perfect for painting and decorating. Clay flower pots are fun and useful birthday party favors for six year old kids, and they provide a fun and time-consuming birthday party activity.

Provide kids with 4-inch clay pots, acrylic paint, paintbrushes, and paint shirts to protect their clothing. By the time the party is over, the acrylic paint will be dry, and kids can take home a packet of flower seeds along with their hand painted flowerpots. These birthday party favors are gifts that will keep on giving!

Ultra Cool Birthday Party Sunglasses

Six year old kids want to look just as cool as older kids, and kids are never too young to begin protecting their eyes from the damaging rays of the sun. Consider buying a pair of inexpensive sunglasses with colorful frames and UV protection for all of the kids at the birthday party. They make fantastic party favors, especially when decorated with artificial flowers, flat-back faux gems, tiny craft foam cutouts, or flat buttons of various designs. You can find all of these supplies at your local craft store, and kids can have fun designing these fun and useful party favors.
