@gromble: Cinnamon was what first entered my head. Another one is Ginger.

Do hot chocolate, at least they can drink it, there’s no kid I know that would like herbs for favors.

If you have some pet-loving kids coming, consider catnip!  My friend and I grew this when we were about 10 and we thought it was the coolest thing ever, especially when we got to cut and dry it and give it to our cats. 🙂

Bottled dried herbs don’t exactly spoil, but they do lose their potency after a period of time. Unless you have a lot of air-tight storage, in a cool dark place, you might have a hard time keeping the flavor past about 6 months. You may want to do a test jar or three now just to see what they’re like after 6-12 months’ storage. You don’t want your guests to end up with dusty flavors!

I’d give the kids hot chocolate or cocoa mix or something. No kid in history is going to go, “Yay Oregano!”

As a kid, I wouldn’t have known what to do with a bottle of spices. I think you should go with the hot chocolate mix for them.

@gromble:  My point being, any “spice” is going to be lost on a child. They’re not going to know what to do with, it they aren’t going to be able to cook with it or make their own food or use it however they please. If you want to appeal to the kids, give them something they know, like hot chocolate or marshmallows or something like that.

any spice you give a child will have to be handed over to the parents so I am not seeing this as a favor they would appreciate. I do think the hot cocoa would great though!

I can’t picture any kid appreciating a spice as a favor. Just give them candy or something, it doesn’t have to be the same as what their parents get.

Not exaclty spices but perhaps some cute tiny jars with different types of sprinkles they can use for ice cream or cakes? I don’t know

I’m doing homemade jam for my favors, but have a lot of kids coming so they are getting entirely different favors.  I’m going to have a flower pot with their name on it and lots of things inside for them to do during the wedding (a custom coloring book, crayons, pipe cleaners).  Granted they are quite a bit younger (all under 10) but I think perhaps doing something completely different for the kids would be better than doing “matching” favors that they may not use.
