Gymnastics Birthday Party Favor Ideas

Creative favor ideas for a gymnastics themed birthday party

If your daughter loves gymnastics a gymnastics theme is perfect for their birthday party. It can be really hard to find good quality gymnastics favors that birthday guests will enjoy though.

Because gymnastics isn't as heavily commercialized as birthday themes like Dora the Explorer or Barbie it can be a real challenge to find party favors. But with some creativity you can get some great gymnastics favors that kids will love to pop in the treat bags.

Gymnastics Stickers

Stickers are the classic party favor ...

Kids love stickers. You can get some cute and bright gymnastic design stickers if you know where to look too. 

If the sticker is high quality enough you don't need to include a whole sheet of sticker in the party favor bag. Just one sticker will do. The trick is to find a sticker design that is that good you will only need one for each child. 

This is where it can get tricky. It can be really hard to find high quality gymnastics themed stickers. But I managed to find some great ones that will work well in a party bag. 

Gymnastics Headband Favors

Great for gymnastics practice...

These gymnast headbands are a lovely choice for a party favor. They're a little more expensive than a regular favor but they have great practical value. They're also a fun way to pop something fashion related into your party favor bag. They come in 18 different colors so you can choose your headband favors to suit your club colors, party color theme or just a favorite color. You can also mix and match and let the girls swap to get the color they want (good practice in negotiation skills *wink*)  

These headbands are a great idea for any gymnastics practice from vaulting to tumbling too. 


Gymnastics Pin Button for Older Kids

A fun idea you might not have thought of

This is a fun idea for girls of at least 8 years (who aren't silly). I wouldn't recommend them for younger girls or those who are likely to hurt themselves on the pins just through being too silly. 

These pins are a great way for them to easily express their love of gymnastics. They turn any top into an I love gymnastics top. So they're definitely going to be a hit. 

They're not as expensive as you'd think either. So they're in a nice price range for a party favor. Your party guests only need one button each.

Gymnastics Chocolates

Themed chocolate is an essential favor...

Candy and sweets are a traditional part of any party favor bag. But gymnastics themed sweets are really hard to find. So usually party planners (otherwise known as Mom) have to make do with standard party candy favors. 

But you can include some great gymnastics themed chocolates by making your own.

Chocolate making isn't too hard. You can get some great gymnastics themed molds too. So if you have time to add this to your list of things to do for the party they're a nice idea. This is because they're not only yummy but they're extra special because they're very rare. Your party goers won't have seen many gymnastics chocolates before. They also keep the favor bag within the gymnastics party theme.

Gold Winning Gymnasts

These medals are a fun make believe idea

When I did gymnastics I dreamed of being the next Olga Korbut or Nadia Comăneci (yes I'm showing my age here).

Winning gold is something most little gymnasts will dream about. So using a gold medal like this as a party favor will not only delight the birthday guests but will encourage pretend play long after the party has finished. 

These medals are much cheaper than you'd think too. So they're the perfect price to use as a high quality gymnastics party favor. 

Rhythmic Gymnastics Favors

Ribbon play is always a hit with girls...

Rhythmic gymnastics is a great place to find party favor ideas. Although you'll have to look outside the party "department" to find what you want. 

Amazon has some great ideas in ribbons. This class ribbon set caught my eye. Being a bulk buy it works out cheaper for you. Plus the double ribbon is a novelty that's just a little different from the usual rhythmic gymnastics ribbon. 

These are a fun idea. It keeps to the gymnastics theme so a gymnastics crazy kid will love it too.

Gymnastics Book Favors

A great way to get kids reading more ...

Early reader books are great for children aged 5 to about 8 years of age. There are some great gymnastics titles among them in differing reading levels at Amazon. They're cheap enough to be used as an unusual party favor too.

Books aren't the usual choice for a party favor - mostly because they aren't considered "fun" by kids unless they really love reading. Good quality books are usually are too expensive to be used as party favors too.

But for a child who loves gymnastics a book like this can not only encourage them to read but can make reading more fun. They are also a great price so they make another good idea for a gymnastics party favor.
