Kids can help make these fun birthday party favors

Do you have a kid’s birthday party coming up? This time why not have the kids make these fun birthday party favors for the big day? Using inexpensive supplies such as chalk from the dollar store they can make these birthday party favors quick and easy! When done they resemble little birthday candles! How adorable!

You can make them for a boy or a girl’s party depending upon the color. And if the party is for a girl you can even make a hair bow to match the ribbon color on the faux chalk candle birthday party favors.

  1. Gather scrap ribbon. Find ribbon that will fit the party theme and color scheme. I made some favors for a boy’s party and some favors for a girl’s party.

  1. Cut strips of ribbon to attach to the top, middle, and bottom. Hold the ribbon in place with glue. Glue the ribbon together but do not glue it to the chalk. – This way kids can remove the ribbon to easily get to the chalk pieces.

  1. Attach 2 feathers in between the chalk at the top. I used yellow and orange feathers to make it look like a small flame.
