Yo Gabba Gabba Party Favors
Party favors are a great addition to your child’s party because they mean every single child, not just the guest of honor, gets to go home with a few little gifts. These party favors can be fun games or activities for the children to enjoy during the party itself. Others are just great little gifts for the kids to enjoy for days after the party is over, or even longer than that!
If you’re short on time or craft supplies, you can purchase some great ready-made party favors that should delight the kids. For $4.99 each you can purchase a Yo Gabba Gabba party favor box shaped like DJ Lance Rock’s colorful radio. Inside are a set of eight oversize crayons and a notepad, a sticker sheet, a glitter bounce ball, a ring, and a party blower. Each item is decorated with the faces of Yo Gabba Gabba’s five colorful main characters. If you plan to make your own party favors but want a fun way to hand them out, you can also purchase the empty cardboard boomboxes to fill with your own goodies!
You can also purchase some other fun items that would make great party favors, and are relatively inexpensive. $3.99 (or less) will get you a Yo Gabba Gabba coloring book that comes with three double-sided crayons. For only $1.99, you can get each child his or her own pair of DJ Lance glasses. A bit more money - $6.99 – will get you a coloring book that comes with over 250 stickers.
Iron-on Yo Gabba Gabba T-shirts
If you do have the time to make handmade party favors, Nick Jr has templates and step-by-step instructions for making some items that are sure to delight your little guests. One idea is to custom make a t-shirt for each child. This project involves iron transfer paper, plain t-shirts, and the templates available to print off the website. The kids can wear their t-shirts during the party, which means everybody will match the theme!
Yo Gabba Gabba Snuggle Pillows
Nick Jr also has step-by-step instructions for making pillows in the shape of the different Yo Gabba Gabba characters. This project is a bit more ambitious, but still very do-able if you have a bit on time on your hands. There is no sewing involved in the making of these pillows, and even someone who doesn’t consider herself/himself very “crafty” should be able to follow these instructions. The supplies that you will need for this project are felt, water-resistant fabric glue, and cotton or polyester to stuffing to make the pillows soft and fluffy! If you don't have access to a fabric store fabric.com provides a great selection at reasonable prices. This makes a great party favor that the kids will be talking about for quite a while!
