Party Bag Filler Ideas For a Two Year Olds Birthday Party

Party Bag Filler Ideas For a Two Year Olds Birthday Party

In these modern times, so many things have changed, including how we communicate, find information and buy products. But there's one thing that's the same; party bags. You probably remember them being the best part of any party during your childhood, and even corporate events offer guests gift bags to take away with them. 

If you're planning a toddlers party or want to cater for your customers with children, then party bag fillers are a great way to offer a friendly gesture to your child's friends and say thank you for attending their party. 

With so many fillers to choose between, it can be challenging to decide which are appropriate for two-year-olds. So, in this post, we're going to do just that. 

Crayons 

What child doesn't love crayons? Toddlers are naturally curious and love experiencing new things. Something as simple as a box of crayons can be an impressive gift for a two-year-old and allows them to draw shapes and develop some artistic skills. 

You can find cheap packs of crayons in party shops or even in discount stores such as Poundland. A good idea would be to add a small pad of paper to the party bag. Not only will this bulk the contents out, but parents will be grateful that their walls will be safe from enthusiastic budding artists! 

Bubbles 

Another classic party bag staple is bubbles. It doesn't matter how old you are; there's something very satisfying about blowing bubbles. Not only are bubbles incredibly fun, but they're also cost-effective. 

Adding a bottle of bubbles to each bag won't break the bank, but they will bring a lot of joy to the average toddler. 

Badges 

If you're into arts and crafts, you can easily make badges for your child's friends. Not only is this a cheaper option, but they're also personalised, which will make the party bag filler more appealing for young toddlers. 

Whether you choose to buy badges or make your own, it's essential you make sure the badges come with a plastic safety clip instead of a pin. 

Stickers 

Kids love stickers, so adding a strip to each party bag is sure to be a hit with your child's friends. There are plenty of sticker making machines available, so you can get your little one involved with designing sticks for their attendees. 

If you're looking for a quicker solution, then we suggest buying themed sticker sets such as animals, superheroes or Disney movies because they're recognisable. 

Chocolate 

Some parents are worried about putting treats in a toddler's party bag because they're unsure which sweets are safe for young children. You should always avoid giving a toddler boiled or chewy sweets because they can get stuck in the throat and cause young people to choke. 

While some sweets such as Haribo and Jelly Tots might be ok, it's best to play it safe and choose chocolate. There are so many chocolate treats to choose from, including chocolate coins, smarties and foil-covered chocolate footballs. 

Other popular options include Cadbury's Freddo bars, which are ideal because they're treat sized chocolates from one of the UK's most beloved brands. 

You could also opt for Milky Way's and Magic Stars, which are suitable for children. Milkybar is specifically made for young people, so choosing any of these chocolates means you can be confident that any child will be safe to enjoy them. 

Buying wholesale chocolate means you can get some great deals, and putting together pick and mix bags makes for a great party filler. 

Playdoh 

Playdoh is a great way to encourage creativity in toddlers, and it's an entirely safe material. Kids can mould and shape the dough into fun shapes, and many sets come with tools too. 

Make sure you buy sets that are suitable for two-year-olds and remember to think about costs. There might be cheaper alternatives to Playdoh, but it's vital to ensure children won't get the dough stuck in their hair.

Bouncy Balls 

Another firm favourite is the classic bouncy ball, which provides hours of fun. Toddlers are curious, so you should opt for larger balls that they won't be able to put in their mouths. Small bouncy balls are a choking hazard, so it's best to avoid them. 

Bath Toys 

This idea isn't conventional, but if you're going for something unique, bath toys could be a welcome addition to the party bag. You can get cheap rubber ducks, and kids love playing with them. 

Birthday Cake 

Last, but definitely not least on our list of party bag fillers is a slice of birthday cake. It's the one thing you cannot forget, so make sure it's a good one! Most kids love brightly themed cakes with fondant icing, and you can find a range of designs at any supermarket. 

If you're going for something special, then head to your local bakery or grab a rolling pin and create a masterpiece for your little one. 

Why Are Party Bag Fillers Important?

Party bag fillers are a gesture to your guests, and let them know you appreciate the effort they made to attend your party. While some people don't think they're necessary anymore, it's important to remember that parents take time out of their day to make sure their kids attend a party and spend money on a gift. 

If you're on a budget, then buying wholesale chocolate and putting together pick and mix bags is a great way to say thank you, and it won't make you look cheap. All kids enjoy chocolate, so you can save money and give your child's friends a party bag they'll love.
