  • Fill a sand table with clean dry sand. Bury plastic bracelets, toy watches, costume rings, plastic gold coins and other small trinkets you can get at crafts stores, dollar stores or any store with a toy or party section. Use a sand shovel or a sand sifter and let each child find a few treasures to take home as party favors.
