For favors, I made chocolate cattails. I used a pretzel mold (snagged from JoAnn’s with a coupon) to mold pretzels in chocolate. Then I bagged them up two at a time and had them in a basket by the door.
For the kids, I wanted some activities that might entertain them during the party as well. I googled for coloring pages related to the Mississippi River or steamboats and found some really cool ones
I rolled the coloring pages up, added some crayons, stickers, chalk and bubbles. I stuck it all in a paper bag and wrote each child’s name on front.
All the favors were a big hit!
