It can be fun to make birthday party favors before the party, especially if you can make them with your child. Bonus! Some of these ideas could double as a party activity.
1. Mermaid tail cupcakes
What little girl wouldn’t love to take home a piece of cake? Some of our most fun parties were ones where kids decorated cupcakes. Let them take them home.

What’s more natural than mermaids and water – they go together like water and… soap! Have fun making these ahead of time, or make them at the party.

Eating off these dishes will remind your little mermaids all year long of the great time they had at the birthday girls party.
