If you think the days of handing out party favors are behind you, think again. Tweens may be growing up and developing a newfound sense of independence , but they still love their parties. Sure, tweens may no longer be interested in finger puppets and tiny jars of Play-Doh, but there are plenty of age-appropriate goodies that are sure to please. When you're choosing your party favors, try to think of one larger, feature item you know the kids will flip over. It could be something like a game for boys or a bracelet kit for girls. The rest of the bag can be filled with smaller things and edible goodies, but most of their attention will go to the showstopper and make the event even more memorable.
