This bag can be filed with any number of different small treats for each of the guests attending the event. If you do have any lanyards left over you can easily save these and use them the following year.

A fiftieth party is another place where a lanyard makes a perfect gift. Once again you can have the person’s name and date of birth printed on the lanyard.

An alternative would be to have a number of photos used that mark special moments in the birthdays person’s life.

Lanyards can even be used as part of the festivities themselves. You can use the lanyards as a part of a number of different party games.

The children are then challenged with the task of finding as many buttons as they can throughout the party. The child with the most buttons in the lanyard pouch at the end of a specified amount of time wins. If you do not want to hide buttons you can use anything from wrapped candies to pennies.

Small prizes are often awarded to those children who win games. Rather than trying to keep track of which child wins which game provide each guest with a lanyard in which they can store any small items that they do win during the party.
