The Best Non-Edible Birthday Favors Your Child Can Bring To School

Children feel proud and excited when they get to share their birthday with their school friends.  Bringing birthday treats into school is nice a tradition that encourages students to share and think of others.  When I was a student, it was all cupcakes and cookies, but with new school food restrictions  and student allergies, it’s time to move to non-edibles.  From a teaching perspective, it’s great if all the favors are the same, can be given out at the end of the day, and aren’t messy.  Without further adieu, here are my top favor ideas broken down into educational, outdoor, and artistic.
