Are you in the process of planning a mermaid themed party for your child? If so, you may want to take a moment to check out my list of mermaid themed party favor ideas. Here it is:
In my experience, mermaid yo-yos make super party favors. It is basically a plastic yo-yo that has been outfitted with a mermaid sticker. Mermaid yo-yos are often sold through party supply retailers for less than $2 apiece. Of course you may also want to consider making your own custom mermaid yo-yos. In order to make customized yo-yos, you’ll need to purchase plain yo-yos from the discount store. You’ll also need to create a batch of mermaid stickers with your home computer and a sheet of Avery labels. Once you have your mermaid stickers complete, simply affix them to the yo-yos. That’s all there is to it.
Mermaid Hair Terries
If you want to give your child’s party guests adorable and practical party favors, you may want to consider investing in a case of Mermaid Hair Terries. Mermaid Hair Terries are terry cloth hair elastics that have been outfitted with little rubber mermaids. A package of four Mermaid Hair Terries will typically cost you $10 through party supply shops. If you are feeling crafty, you may want to consider making your own mermaid themed hair accessories. In order to make your own mermaid hair accessories, you need to purchase a few blank hair combs from a jewelry supply shop and a few mermaid figurines from a craft store. Once you have your supplies all in one place, hot glue the mermaid figurines to the hair comb blanks. That is all there is to it.
I would also recommend that you consider handing out chocolate mermaid lollipops. In order to make mermaid lollipops, you’ll need a mermaid candy mold, a bag of chocolate melts, a pack of lollipop sticks, cellophane wrappers and twist ties. There are several confectionary supply shops that sell mermaid candy molds for less than $4 each. Based on my experience, there are two different types of mermaid candy molds available. One of the mermaid candy molds makes mermaid lollipops. The second mermaid candy mold makes solid chocolate mermaid candies. You may want to consider purchasing both types of molds and making an assortment of chocolate mermaids.
Mermaid Gummy Candies
If you don’t want to give your child’s party guests chocolate, you may want to consider handing out mermaid gummy candies instead. There are several party supply shops that sell mermaid gummy candies. One of them is Oriental Trading. The company typically sells a case of Mermaid Girl Gummy Fun Packs (18 bags) for less than $8.
Last but not least, mermaid stickers would make an excellent party favor too. You can generally purchase books or packages of mermaid stickers through craft stores, party supply shops and stationary supply shops. Stuff 4 Crafts sells books of Glitter Mermaid Stickers for less than $2 each. I’d suggest that you consider pairing the mermaid stickers with mermaid pencils and a mermaid notebook. In my experience, a case of 36 mermaid pencils will generally cost you less than $15. Mermaid notebooks tend to sell for less than $5 each.
