Games are a fun addition to any party. When you host a party where games will be played, plan some prizes for the winners. Try to match the prizes to the theme of the party. If your party is for young children, choose prizes that are not too elaborate. That way, the kids who don't win won't be too jealous.
Give the winner of your party game a container of cookies. Choose a white cellophane bag tied up with a ribbon or a small cookie tin for the treats. Make a batch of your best cookies, such as chocolate chip or peanut butter cookies. Make sugar cookies and cut them into shapes that go with the party's theme. For example, if you are hosting a baby shower, make cookies shaped like rattles. For an engagement party, choose cookies shaped like wedding dresses.
Give a small stuffed animal as the prize for winning a game at a kids' party. Choose a variety of animals, such as teddy bears, elephants, ducks and puppies. Play lots of games so all the kids have a chance to win a stuffed animal. For very small children, buy enough stuffed animals for every child to have one. Once the games are finished, give the children who didn't win a stuffed animal to reward them for being good sports.
This is a great party prize idea for kids who are a bit older. Create small gift bags that are filled with a coloring book and a box of crayons or markers. This is the perfect gift for a coed party because little girls and boys both love coloring. Choose coloring books that match the theme of the party. For example, select Disney princess coloring books for a princess party.
Choose gift cards for an adult party or a party for older kids, such as teenagers. The gift card could be for a small amount such as $10. If you are hosting a more elaborate party, choose a gift card worth more. Select a gift card to a movie theater or a popular local restaurant. You can also choose cards that match the theme of your party. For a spa party, go with a gift card to a local spa. If you are hosting a sports-themed party, select a gift card to a local sporting goods store.
