    Default Crafty prizes for birthday party games...

    Hey everyone! Tyler's Blues Clues birthday party is tomorrow and I don't have the money to go out and buy prizes for the games the kids will be playing at the party. Any ideas for homemade prizes? The kids are 6-11 years old (and Tyler of course)... both boys and girls.
    I have alot of pony beads and such that I thought I would make some necklaces with... the girls will like those.

    If you have lollipop sticks and a some leftover Christmas chocolate make chocolate lollipops for an inexpensive treat.

    Art kits you put together for them to assemble are always great for kids....
    Colored Macaroni necklaces......... Make colored macaroni and put it in a baggie with a cord....

    Pom pom critters...... Give them pom poms, wiggly eyes, pipe cleaners whatever..... Think like a kid !!!!!!! Make kits from these too !!!

    Lace up or sewing cards.... make these from the plastic on 2 ltr bottles, lids, or milk cartons.... punch holes with a paper punch and add a piece of yarn with the end taped............. Paw print shapes would be easy and cute......

    Paw print beanies.... fill with beans, but if you fill with lentils or split peas they will be more like beanies....

    Use some of that left over Halloween candy to make treat bags..... (I won't tell )

    Bags of colored/ flavored popcorn (we made this and it's sweet but good, the kids loved it !)

    Yarn bugs are awesome..... Check these out...... Make some that say, "1st prise" "Best behaved"
    "best dressed" what ever...... make enough that everyone can win at some time during the party......
    If you don't have any yarn.... make them from strips of fabric............

    Homemade playdough....... Put in little bags or containers... tiny margirine bowls would be great !

    The bubbles are a good idea......... Use little bottles from meds..... make the wand by wrapping a piece of wire around some kind of dowel or wooden spoon handle and twist to make the handle....
    Do you know a foolproof recipe for homemade bubbles?

    This recipe is a winner. It's easy to mix up--and inexpensive to boot. Simply stir together 6 parts water, 2 parts Joy dishwashing liquid (this brand works the best), and 3/4 part corn syrup. Store in a covered container.

    Made creature candies...... Use your imagination... use pipecleaners, wiggly eys, whatever you have...

    I have more ideas I'm sure, but can't really think now..... This is where I excel though.. making something out of nothing..... I have seen you do it too.......
    I hope this helps........

    Wow! Thanks you guys!

    SO far I have a couple of beaded necklaces... a few bookmarks I printed online and contact papered and tied ribbons on. I found 2 little mini bubbles I had from a wedding and threw them in... I also had a few sheets of stickers.

    Need a couple of more boyish things though....

    Make blues clues playdough. Add blue kool-aid to the playdough recipe linked by Captclearance.
