Is your preschooler an avid fan of Caillou? Does he or she like to play make believe like Caillou does? If so, you may want to contemplate hosting a Caillou themed party for your child this year. In my experience, there are a multitude of items that may be used as party favors with such a topic. Here’s a passing glance at a handful of them:
Caillou School Supplies
In my opinion, Caillou themed school supplies would make superb party gifts. You can often buy Caillou themed school supplies through the PBS website. Items to consider using as party favors include Caillou stickers and notepads. You may also want to consider purchasing a box of crayons and embellishing it with spare Caillou stickers. That way, it will fit in better with your party’s theme. Prices for the school supplies will vary.
Caillou is known for wearing a yellow t-shirt with red trim. As such, you may want to consider creating candies made to resemble his outfit. There are companies that sell t-shirt shaped candy molds for $2 to $3 each. One such company is Country Kitchen Sweetart. If you do decide to make the candy t-shirts, you’ll also need to invest in a few bags of candy melts and candy boxes. All told, the whole project is apt to cost you $25. It should also yield you about a dozen candy t-shirts.
Caillou Coloring Books
Based on my experience, Caillou coloring books would make ideal party favors too. You could opt to purchase ready-made coloring books or make your own. Personally, I’d suggest that you consider making your own Caillou coloring books. It is easy enough to do. All you need in order to get the job done are an assortment of Caillou coloring sheets and pieces of card stock. You can typically find a variety of complimentary Caillou coloring and activity pages online. Websites to consider utilizing include PBS Kids, Sprout Online and Educational Coloring Pages. Each one has coloring sheets that may be downloaded and printed using your home computer.
Make Believe Supplies
Finally, you may also want to think about giving your party guests an array of make believe supplies. Items that would be appropriate for use include masks, face paints, hats, faux moustaches and other costume pieces. Excellent places to buy such supplies include party shops, discount retailers and craft stores. The white face masks available through Oriental Trading are one of my favorite items in that regard. The masks are designed to be decorated in any way that your party guests see it. They tend to sell for $6 a dozen. Unfortunately, the masks do not come with art supplies. Therefore, if you do decide to go that route, you’ll need to purchase some art supplies as well.
