Throwing a kid’s birthday party can be tiring and hectic. To make it less stressful, we recommend checking out Wicked Uncle’s guide to the best birthday party ideas. One of the biggest concerns we face is deciding on the return gift we plan to give. We have to take into consideration not only what the kids like but something in our budget too. This time go for something that helps our environment too. This will help the children learn the importance of saving our nature while having fun with it. Here are some eco-friendly return gifts which will not only save your pockets but also nature.
Playdough or clay is the best gift which sparks creativity in young minds. It helps increase the kid’s imagination and keeps them engaged outside the TV and mobile screens. Even moms would be happy with this gift. This playdough is made of natural elements of the earth. This makes it harmless to your kids.
If you want to directly increase awareness about saving the environment then nothing is better than gifting the kid sapling or seeds to plant. Inform their mothers in advance about. You could also go for plants which have medicinal value like tulsi, neem or Gotu kola. Avoid giving plants like aloe vera which has thorns. The kids might end up hurting themselves by mishandling it. You could ask the mother to help children take care of the pant and make them understand its importance.
A pencil is a necessary stationery which kids carry with them to school. Once the pencil has reduced in length, it is thrown away, which is a waste of wood. Small length pencil can be recycled as a plant with this plantable seed pencil. Once it is used completely this seed pencil can be planted. The children will use the pencil carefully once they get to know about it. Seeds of many different plants are available with these pencils.

It is crucial to explain to children the importance of saving money. If they have attractive piggybanks they may decide on storing the money in it. Most of them come in plastic which is bad for the environment. To save money as well as nature, you could gift them beautifully designed wooden piggy bank.
