This year my daughter is turning 7 and we are going to take her to Sweet and Sassy to get her ears pierced, I am going to bake her a cake, and we are going to go bowling with family. I am trying to think of some kind of neat favor I can take to school on her birthday for her classmates. I am going to take cupcakes but I thought since she wasn't having a party this year I could give the kids something else besides a treat bag. Let me know if you have any ideas. They would be greatly appreciated.

What can I do next?

If your daughter likes to cook, consider kid-friendly cooking utensils. We offer birthday parties too, but sounds like you have that wrapped up this year...we have pencils, bandana's, pizza cutters, chef's knives and more that are excellent goodie/gift bag ideas that we have in our birthday party packages, but you can come in and purchase for your bags. Just call, email or come by our Carrollton location: ###-###-#### email: _[email protected]____.com.

How about having her do a card or scrape book style page to tell that person what they mean to her. I know they are only 7 but kids like to know how their peers feel about them. Even if she has some that she is not that crazy about it could be the one thing that turns that child around.

If it is a mixed class of boys & girls, coupons to a place near you for an ice cream or a game would be nice and both sexes are pleased. Kite weather is coming soon here in Texas so an inexpensive kite or coupon for one....Happy Birthday to your sweetie! Annette

How about celebrating the number "7" by making gift bags with 7 small toys in each bag. You and your daughter can have fun making the bags yourselves. You can put your daughter's name on the bags with a giant "7" on the front.

Puppets are BIG with this age child. If you have the resources you can't go wrong with a hand puppet for each child in class.

What about inexpensive tiaras & crowns for the kids? Have you seen the rubber bracelets with holes for Croc charms? Those could be neat, too. Happy birthday to your daughter!

In several different catalogs there are pencils that you can personalize. One is Lillian Vernon, one is Oriental Trading Company, and another is Current. I've done this before. They're less than ten dollars for something like fifty pencils. You can put something on there like "Suzie's Seven today!" Or whatever.... of course, I don't know your daughter's name. If it's Suzie, I must be psychic. lol.
OK, good luck.

what about books or perhaps some type of journal/art pad and a fancy pen/pencil? My 7 yr. old loves the pens that have different colors in them. HTH

Hi Candice,
A friend's daughter just turned 6 and she took cupcakes and bags of decorations for each child. She gave each kid an index card with a letter (H,A,P,P,Y, etc.) and each kid would decorate that letter on their cupcake. Then she took pictures with each kid and their cupcake, then a picture with all the kids holding all of their cupcakes. It was a little messy, but what do you expect from 6 year olds. :) She used candy but would recommend using the small icing tubs instead or you'll have candy blobs. Good Luck

Make sure that the school will allow you to hand out treat bags at school for birthdays. I know that my sons school does not let you. She would be very dissapointed if she thought she had treats for her classmates and then could not hand them out.

I have to agree with the cool pens and pencils idea. I think journals would work too! I went to the dollar store and bought cute bags and put glo-sticks in with several different kinds of candy in addition to a squishy ball for my 7 year old's gift bags and the kids all loved it! I think no matter what you do they will love it ~

You might have already thought about this...but the one suggestion I have for you is to make sure you go to a place that has 2 ear guns and 2 people there so that they can pierce both of your little girl's ears at one time. That's how we did my little girls ears and I worked at the Wal-Mart Jewlry dept while in undergrad and this is the only way I would pierce little girls ears b/c the first ear is fine but if you do them separate then the second ear really scares them and is hard to get perfect.

I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask this (sorry if I am hijacking your question!) but I am curious about giving treats (other than cake or cupcakes or whatever) to other children on your child's birthday. My daughter is only 9 months old, so it's a little too soon to worry about this, but I've noticed other posts talking about gift bags and treats for OTHER kids on your child's birthday. Is this a new trend? I don't remember this being a being a big factor when I was a child (I'm 33); only the birthday boy/girl got gifts.

Again, sorry if I'm hijacking your question. I've just been very curious about this.
