Favorite Party Favors for Gift Bags

Fortnite/Gaming T-shirt

This is one of the Fortnite shirts we bought and gave to our party guests as they were coming in the door.

Including shirts as part of the “loot drop” bag was perfect! A lot of the kids put their shirts on when they first got to the

party. All the parents informed me later that their kids said our Fortnite birthday party was the best party they ever

attended!

    Hope it was as fund as it looks.

  2. Jennifer says:

    Thanks, Caleb. It was a total blast — probably the best party I’ve ever thrown for my boys. They are big Fortnite fans!

  3. Tiffany says:

    About how big was the Llama piñata?? Id like to make it and used your printables, but couldn’t find any measurements in regards to llama size. Help!
    Thanks
    Tiffany M

  4. Sheila says:

    Thank you!

  5. Jen says:

    Hi Tiffany — I added the Loot Llama template. Just print out, tape them together, and place them on a flat piece of cardboard to trace, then cut out.

    Hope you have a fantastic party!!!

  6. Dee says:

    I do not have a creative bone in my body so when I came across your website, I felt like I hit the lottery jackpot! I had 2 weeks to put together a Fortnite birthday party for my son and did not know where and how to start. You had EVERYTHING already laid out with links to Amazon and you made it extremely easy for a fail-proof EPIC birthday celebration. Hands down, if anyone follows your very detailed step by step creative fortnite projects, everyone will have an EPIC, memorable birthday party. Thank you so much for your quick responses to all my questions and thank you so much for your support the last 2 weeks. You are amazing and I look forward to see what other birthday ideas you have in the future. All the work my husband I put in for the fortnite birthday party was well worth it with all the little details to make it EPIC. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!

    Hi Jennifer,

    Great blog post by the way – congrats! Just wanted to share another idea my husband found online a couple of months or so ago while shopping for gift ideas for my 14-year old Fortnite addict son – it turned out unbelievable! It was a Fortnite inspired personalized Bobblehead from MyCustomBobblehead.com You could find them here: MyCustomBobblehead.com/search?q=fortnite They customized the Fortnite bobblehead with my son’s face based on a picture I sent them. The resemblance is so realistic that my husband and I couldn’t believe it. Just thought it’d be cool to share the joy – Cheers! – Susie

  12. Jennifer says:

    Hi Susy — That sounds like a very cool holiday gift idea for my sons! Thank you for the recommendation — I’ll add it to my list! Have an awesome day, friend!

  13. Belinda Kent says:

    I have read this the day after hosting a fortnite themed party for my two boys. I made 2 different pinatas, similar to your idea. I have one question, how did you get the pinatas to stay hanging up on the string? after a couple of wacks, my pinatas where cordless on the floor, and dad had to carefully hold the tops, so the kids could continue to bash them open.
    Many thanks. 🙂

  14. Hi Belinda — I bet your Fortnite Birthday Party was a Blast! The Loot Llama pinata I made was extremely heavy, once I put all of the candy inside. I had the same problem as you did – at first, we had attached a D-ring type hook to the back of the pinata, but the hook broke off of the cardboard. So, the only thing left to do quickly was to tie a noose in the rope and wrap it around the Llama’s neck. I know it sounds terrible (my husband’s idea), but it was very effective and worked through about 40 more really hard hits. So, I guess next time I make a pinata I will make it smaller, not put quite as much candy inside, and plan for a heavy duty hanger and attachment. If you look at some of the pinata pics, you can see the rope tied directly around the Loot Llama’s neck. Not exactly what I had in mind, but we had to come up with something, and fast! The good news is that the pinata was such a big hit! The kids loved it! I hope your Fortnite party was Awesome!!! Jennifer @derbylanedreams

  15. Daria Cober says:

    Hi. This is fantastic thank you. Is there a PDF file for the pickaxe? I have no idea how to draw one. Thanks!

  16. Hi Daria! Thank you so much for your kind words!

    So, just this morning, I created a PDF template for the pickaxe and added it in my post, below the Fortnite Pickaxe section. It’s not any specific measurements, just hand drawn, which is what I did with the originals. And, actually, I like each one to be a little bit different — it makes them seem more realistic!

    Remember, you can get the twine and handles at the Dollar Tree, Dollar General, etc. If you can’t find the handles, I’ll bet you could use some thick branches from your yard, cut down to size.

    Good luck! And let me know if you have any more questions or need help in making them! Have an awesome day!

  17. Daria Zola says:

    Thank you for all the inspiration. We are preparing for our first Trunk or Treat this weekend and we wanted to go with a FortNite theme. We used your template for the axe and the llama (not to use as a piñata but for decoration). I’m so thrilled how it all came out and am excited to see the kid’s faces when they come to our car this weekend!
    Daria

  18. Hi Daria — I am so excited for you! Kids absolutely love the Fortnite theme and everything that goes along with it! It sounds like it’s going to be a fantastic event! I’m so glad that you made the fortnite pickaxe and fortnite loot llama pinata. The children will get a big kick out of everything! Happy Trunk or Treat! Jennifer @derbylanedreams

  19. Mandy says:

    Last night, I decided to do fortnite for trunk or treat at our church (as one of my sons was playing fortnite and it got me thinking), and then I started looking up ideas and found your blog. I printed out the templates and have 2 days to put something together, but most of it seems doable. I’m not crafty at all, but you made it easy! I’m excited to work on this over the next couple of days. Thanks for the Etsy links to get some of the labels. Big time saver to do that as opposed to making the jars and everything like I initially thought I’d have to do. And thank you for keeping it simple, cheap, and fun!

  20. Hi Mandy! Thanks for your kind comments! And, you are welcome! Yes, everything is definitely doable — cheap, simple, and so fun to use! You will have no problem making any of these DIY items. We have some of the fortnite pickaxes left over from our fortnite party and my kids and their friends love to chase each other with them! (Okay, I may do that too, on occasion : ) I am excited for you! I had the best time making all this stuff, and the kids’ reactions were priceless! So worth it! Have a great “Trunk or Treat” weekend! Jennifer @derbylanedreams

  21. Tracy says:

    What an awesome party you created for your son. Very talented lady indeed!
    On your party table there is a metal bucket with mini llama heads popping out from the candy..I absolutely love this idea! Just wondering if there is a link for printable mini llama?

  22. Hi Tracy! Thank you so much! Yes, those mini llama heads were so cute! They are actually cupcake toppers, but I used double-sided tape and stuck them onto flat suckers so they would stay up in the olive bucket. Any printables that I purchased for the Fortnite party were from here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/SarahMarieKays . All of her printable downloads are very reasonably priced and she does excellent illustrations. I believe I went to her etsy store and purchased the Fortnite cupcake toppers. Hopefully she still has the same ones. If you don’t see them, you can always message her and ask if it is still available.

    I hope this helps! : ) Jennifer@derbylanedreams

  23. Beth says:

    I am almost ready for my Son’s Fortnite Battle Royale Birthday party with a Nerf war included! I made the Piñata and it came out adorable!!! I found another link that used a washer and small zip strips to form a hook to hang my piñata. I am going to be so sad to see the kids destroy the Loot Llama – well if they can! I made this thing probably a little to solid! Thanks for the great post. One thing I am struggling with is finding a place to make a cake. Where did you get yours?

  24. Hi Beth! Your party is going to be AWESOME! I ordered the Fortnite cake topper on Amazon.com. I got a sheet cake from Publix and asked them to put grass (green icing) all over the top and sides. Then, you just place the cake topper right in the middle. It will fit best on a half sheet cake. I got 1/4 sheet cake and I had to trim down the cake topper.

    Type in this text at the search bar and it should take you right to the cake topper I used:

    Have a Blast!!! Jennifer @derbylanedreams

  25. Cheyenne Morris says:

    Ur ideas and printables are awesome! I am having a Fortnite birthday party for my 12 year old on January 12th and I can’t wait to try out some of ur ideas! Thanks so much! And I will share pics after the party!

  26. Lindsay Hawkins says:

    I would love to know where you got the drop bags from four of the favors. Your post was so awesome!!

  27. Hi Cheyenne, Thank you so much! Oh, that would be great — I can’t wait to see your photos! All the kids are going to love your party! It’s going to be “EPIC!” : ) Thank you, Jennifer @derbylanedreams.

  28. Hi Lindsay – and Thank You! So, I bought the plain blue gift bags at the Dollar Tree (2-pack). Then I went on Etsy.com to a vendor named Sarah Marie Kays Print Shop and downloaded the digital file for the drop bags. I was just looking at her shop and I don’t think she has them listed anymore. But, I did see lots of other Etsy sellers with digital downloads like hers that are extremely similar. So, I would recommend you go on Etsy.com, in the search bar type in “Fortnite gift bags, or Fortnite favor bags” and there will be lots of vendors that will pop up and you can choose which one you like the best. The other thing you could do, if you are handy with either PicMonkey or Canva, is to create the rectangular crate image and put the words DROP across the front of it. Then print it out and attach to your bags with double-sided tape or glue. Good Luck with everything! Let me know how it goes! : ) Jennifer @derbylanedreams.
