Ice Cream Party - Favors

Are you sick of my ice cream party posts in the midst of Winter yet?  We are only having a handful of kiddos at Wynn's party, and I was trying to come up with an ice cream related favor.  I decided that these favors needed to do double duty as decorations and favors. This way I would be able to stick to a reasonable budget.

I ended up taking three paper mache cones that were just over a dollar a piece. I was so excited when I found these at Michaels.  They are significantly less expensive than their Styrofoam counterparts and they can be filled up.  That's when I thought I'd make some ice cream cones and then fill up the inside of the cone with a treat for the kids.

I had recently found some sidewalk chalk at Target on clearance. I had figured I would somehow incorporate it into the favors for the party. I figured it would come in handy come spring time.  One pack of 16 pieces of chalk was $1.98 not bad. I split it into three separate bags and tied a ribbon around them. Then I placed them inside of the cone. On top of the cone I added a tissue paper pom to make an ice cream cone.  I had gotten a large package of these poms at Jo-Ann's at the end of the summer for $5.00.  I only needed to use three out of the package so it was a good deal.

The total cost for these favors was approximately $7.00, which means it will come out to cost a little over $2 a child.  I think because they serve two purposes that it is even a better deal. 

Thanks for stopping by!
