Ways to Make the Bags Fun 

Make the bag itself stand out with some of these fun ideas:

1. Tie a helium balloon to each one (just make sure you have something inside that has some weight)

2. Make your own labels on the computer and personalise with each child’s name

3. If it’s a girls party you could give each one a little dollar store purse or bag full of treats

4. If it’s a pool party or beach theme you could buy a plastic spade, fill the spade end with treats and wrap in cellophane.

5. Buy a simple white paper bag, fill it and seal it by folding a round paper doily over the top and staple.  The effect is very vintage and pretty and by adding a small bow makes it even prettier!

6. Buy some hessian and sew up to make small pouches – perfect as a woodland party favour bag.

7. Make an awesome (and cheap!) butterfly favour bag using a ziplock sandwich bag, a peg and a pipe cleaner!  Check out the easy tutorial here on the Baked Bree blog.

Get Someone Else To Do It!

1. If time is the real issue and your creativity is limited then you can always visit an online store like Loot Bags.  They have a number of themed party bags filled with treats for $3.99 each.

Hopefully, the above list has given you an armload (or bag-full) of ideas to help make your little one’s party bag’s the best they can be.  Remember, at the end of the day it doesn’t really matter what you have in that bag as with most kids its quantity over quality (god bless them) and most will be asleep before they have even looked in it.  For them, nothing usually beats the excitement of being handed that little bag with the promise of sweet and fun surprises.

Unless, of course, it really is a bunny.  A bunny will always trump everything else.
