Luau Inspired Beach Party Favors for a Child’s Birthday


This week’s Pinterest inspired project is a fun idea for beach party favors that could work with a beach or luau party theme.

I pinned this craft to my “Gift Ideas board” and brought it to life for my daughter’s 2nd birthday party. We are having a Luau!

So here is the beach party favors pinned idea that came from Shorty Creations.

shovels pails and candy

I went to Walmart and found these awesome shovels and rakes on one of the birthday party aisle end caps, priced at .97 cents.

Then I grabbed these fun pails at Party City, for .99 cents each.

The party favor bags came from Walmart for .97 cents.

The ribbon I already had, and the candy was a few dollars for each bag.

Not too shabby I don’t think!

Took less than 5 minutes to make, about $20 and I have beach party favors  pails for 8-10 kids!

So what do you think?

Feel free to pin this fun idea to your own boards!

    I'll have to remember this for my son's next birthday. We had a pool put in and this would be a great party favor to go along with the theme! Reply

      The pails were available at our Party City store and the shovels/rakes were at Walmart for .97 cents. I bought out what they had left. The original pinner said she got her purple shovels at the dollar store, though I didn't look there. I preferred the look of blue and orange, versus purple :) Reply
