Send your guests home with an activity for later. Fill a jar with beads, jewelry wire, pendants and clasps for older kids to make jewelry at home.
Give a child of any age the makings of a movie night; a basket full of single-serve chips or popcorn, candy and cans of soda.
Delight young scientists with experiments to conduct at home. Fill buckets with diet sodas and mints, pads of paper with lemon juice for invisible ink, and glitter glue and borax to make glitter slime. Include the instructions to conduct each experiment.
Surprise young chefs with cookie mix in a jar and cookie cutters to make sweet treats at home, or make planting kits for little gardeners from small flower pots, seeds, baggies of soil and instructions.
