The kids are back in school, the weather is still fairly nice, and Halloween is around the corner. We all know what that means… Kids parties! Lots of them! We’re here to take some of that planning stress off your plate with a creative, but incredibly simple take on party favours. That will, of course, be full of delicious Waterbridge gummy candy!
Step One: The Packaging
We love to use mason jars for this step because they look great, are customizable, cost effective, and can be reused again and again making them a great environmentally friendly alternative to bags.
We’ve gone with a Halloween theme by gluing spiders to the lid and spray painting them black. You can also personalize each party favour by using chalk stickers with the kid’s names on them. This method is so simple and looks very sleek!
Step Two: Fill’er up!
Pick out your filling! You can select a colour theme, or even separate the colours to create a rainbow effect like we’ve done below. Mix different colours, flavours and textures to give your party favours lots of variety. Waterbridge Funmix is full of different gummy candy shapes and colours and makes the perfect rainbow effect!
Gummy Candy for Vegans and Vegetarians
Sometimes dietary restrictions make it difficult to use food items in your party favours. Luckily, we carry a few gummy candy options that are suitable for vegans and vegetarians such as our Waterbridge FizzyPops and Waterbridge Canada Wine Gums that kids will love! Our brand new Waterbridge Just Taffy is also Vegetarian friendly. Not only do these taffy pieces taste great, but their vibrant (all-natural!!) colours make a great looking party favour!
Get Creative with your Gummy Candy Filling!
There is more than one way to eat a gummy candy. Adding popcorn can be a great way to add a new twist. This trick works especially well for movie nights and sleepovers! It also cuts down on the amount of sugar you’re serving. Check out our super simple trail mix recipe to see how it’s done! You can also dip your gummies in melted chocolate, adding a delicious texture and flavour to your gummy candy!
That’s Not All!
