Instead of crappy party favors in a plastic bag, we're giving away locally-produced t-shirts to the kids at my son's 5th birthday party. Problem: what to put on them?

After a slew of birthday parties this spring, after which he comes home each time toting a plastic bag or made-in-china tin bucket filled with crap we don't need that probably cost $10 per kid, I've decided to go a different way. For party favors, we're giving away t-shirts to all the kids that are being screened locally. (cost per shirt: $4.80+tax) The problem is I can't figure out what should go on them.
I don't want them to say "[name]'s Birthday Party". The shirts are red, with white printing. I can do any graphic image or text so long as it is a single color. Front or back only (no 2-sided designs).
Some ideas that we've generated:
- a simple kite image. (venue has a kite logo, but I haven't been able to find any simple, free kite art that I like)
- B is for Birthday (with cartoon bees around). (He likes bees, and the venue has a bee display as part of the "ranger station" room where the party will be held).
- a big number 5 (but not all the kids at the party will be 5 or turning 5 - some will be older - so I don't think they'll want to wear a shirt with a big 5 on the front).
- A big cupcake or birthday cake image (but too party specific?)
Of these, I like the kite the best, but I'm not totally thrilled with it, mostly because I can't find a graphic I'm really excited about.
So, hive mind - what would you put on these to make them the most awesome kid t-shirts ever?
