An easy idea would be to make little goody bags that are filled with candies or toys. If you make the cake above from regular bags of M&Ms then you can give out the other colors of M&Ms in the goody bags, which is a great way to get rid of extra candy that you don't want around the house.

Caillou Party Games and Activities
For Caillou party activities the focus should be on creativity and imagination. If you are willing to deal with a little mess and can find some cheap aprons (or old shirts) letting the kids paint with primary colors is a great themed activity. They will get to unleash their own imaginations to bring some of Caillou's adventures to life.
Another idea would be to print out some dinosaur masks and let the kids paint or color them with their own favorite designs. Then have all the kids wear the mask and have a roaring contest, just like Caillou does with his dinosaur friend. If you know someone that is good with face painting you can have the kids get their faces painted so that they can pretend to be any sort of creature just like Caillou.
You can also choose to read your child's favorite Caillou book or watch their favorite show so that even the kids who are not familiar with Caillou enjoy the party.
