You could involve them in designing cookies and letting them take it home.
If its not possible for you to hold such activity, then there are other great ideas for party favors.
Sun visors, canvass bags or baseball caps. You could put the childrens name on them, personalizing the items. You could ask the local craft store to do that or you could do it your own. You could even incorporate a design which is unified with the theme of the party.
Coloring Books. There are coloring books that you could download from the internet. You could choose the images that will go with the theme. You could reduce the sizes and make the coloring books smaller and fit in the goody bag.
Candies and chocolates. Kids love something sweet. You could have the candy and chocolate wrappers personalized. You can do it in your own computer. There are different programs which would help you make a template and put some personal message like thank you in the candy wrappers. If you are not confident with you design skills, there are stores that offer this kind of service.
Jewelry making. Bracelets and friendship pins are very important in a little girls party. So instead of wooden craft, you could have the children making their own jewelry. There are different beads that can be bought in your local craft store. Items necessary for simple jewelry making could be found easily.
Bubbles. Children love bubbles. You could give bubble bottles with customized labels.
A childs mind is very creative, so explore that in your kids birthday party. You could even encourage them to paint their own masks and have a masquerade theme for the party.
