My daughter is turning four next week and instead of having an elaborate birthday party we are taking her and her two best friends to the circus. Since we are saving money on food, decorations, a bounce house, shaved ice booth (we have this every year), and everything else that goes along with a party, I thought I’d spend a few extra dollars to make three special Circus Carnival Theme Party Favors for my three favorite little ladies.
I found these adorable plastic bottles at a craft supply store. I wrapped some red and white paper around it and filled them with blue candies.
I also found these candy shaped plastic containers and filled them with red and gold candies.
I filled some candy pretzel bags with animal crackers and iced animal crackers and tied them with red and blue ribbon.
I also bought a bag of candy peanuts and divided into three. I put them in small plastic sandwich bags, stuffed the bottom of these cute popcorn treat boxes, and placed the peanuts on top.
I designed a little Happy Birthday sign on my computer for the front of the treat box.
I stuffed the box with all the goodies I made including a blue felt flower hair clip and a little stuffed elephant. I also decorated it with some carnival tickets I bought at the craft store.
They turned out so cute and I only spent about $15 per girl. I thought it was well worth it for my daughter and her best friends. I can’t wait to see the looks on their faces when we take them to the actual circus!
