At first, my plan had been to get all of the kids who attended my daughter’s gymnastics party (see here) a hula hoop. Because hula hoops are cool.
But those suckers are pricey. Who knew?
So I started thinking about a Plan B. I had a heck of a time finding good gymnastics party favor ideas online. So I started browsing around at Oriental Trading to get my party favor juices flowing.
At the end of the day, I ended up getting each kid a “gold” medal. These were a big hit. My daughter is still sporting her medal nearly a week later. And the rumor on the street is that she’s not the only one.
Each kid also got a pom-pom. For cheering. Or something.
And a jump rope. For jumping. Or tying your sister up to the chair, as we’ve discovered in recent days.
And then I got these adorable gymnastics-inspired candy bar wrappers from PurpleBerryInk on Etsy and wrapped them around some Hershey’s bars. I mean, how cute are those?
I put everything into clear plastic bags and sealed them with a little cupcake sticker (which, unfortunately, I didn’t get any photos of because, well, there was a party going on and I was busy trying to remember to take pictures of the birthday girl).
I still think a hula hoop would have been cool, but oh well.
