When you arrange a birthday party for a 4 year old, it will be very wise to make sure that all participants get a gift. It is quite common to give out gift bags to all guests and in these you can put all sorts of treats including a nice present. The best person to ask for advice is your soon to be 4 or 5 year old boy. He knows exactly what he likes to see in those treat bags so ask him first. You can also try to recall the gifts he enjoyed when coming home with goodie bags from parties. The good thing about gifts for 4 year old boys and 5 years olds that participate in birthday parties is that they don’t have to cost much at all. In fact, your local thrift store probably has things that won’t cost half a dollar a piece and yet make your little guests feel as if they won the lottery.
Look for pocket lights. These are excellent gifts for a 4 year old boy as well as a 5 year old. You can usually find cool shapes like ice creams, ping pong rackets and other things that little boys enjoy. Anything with a button, light or noise will be a great idea for gift in the goodie bags so check out your local thrift store or online shops like Amazon to see what they have to offer within this category.
Yes, of course, balloons! You can get the regular kind or the kind that is meant for water games. Did you know that it is actually healthy for little kids to fill balloons with air? It gives their lungs a healthy exercise and this is especially great for asthmatic kids. The balloons also fit so well into the gift bags.
Stickers and glue
Stickers are always welcome gifts for 4 year old boys. They are also not the priciest thing on the market. You can probably find rolls with cool images that won’t cost you more than a few dollars or buy a package online. Glue is also a cool idea. Get the non-toxic kind. The parents will look like question marks when they see it but the little boys will know exactly how much can be done with a nice stick of glue…
You can also get big packages with small cars. Put one car in each goodie bag and you have the best gifts for 4 year old boys. These cars don’t have to be of the highest quality but if you are willing to invest in this birthday party present you might want to get the better kind made out of metal with doors that open. This will for sure be something that the guests will love, also the little girls because little girls can also see the charm in cars and anything else mentioned above!
Or why not ballons with a car theme…
