Goody Bags

Last year when Summer was in preschool, I volunteered to bring in a treat of some kind for one of their holiday parties. Goody bags were a suggested option. I thought, “I totally have this.” And then I went to the store and said, “What in the world do I put in them?!”

I ended up getting them together and they went over well. Since then I’ve put together a few more and Summer and Camryn have received quite a few, so I no longer panic in the store.

This morning, I had to bring goody bags in for Camryn’s 4-year-old preschool class.

Pumpkin straws, Halloween pencils, Fruit Roll-Ups, suckers, rubber mice, M&M’s, and tangerines.

I drew faces on the tangerines so that they look like Jack-O-Lanterns. I did that last week for Summer’s class snack and they were a big hit, so I thought I’d do it for Camryn’s class too. I can’t take credit for the idea, I saw it on Pinterest a few months ago and thought it was really cute!

I could have included spider rings, those gross plastic vampire teeth (AKA spit collectors), little pumpkin erasers, etc… but what parent wants more of that stuff all over the house? I prefer fun and simple!

Today is Camryn’s Halloween party at school, tomorrow we’re going to two local events to trick-or-treat, Sunday we may go to a trunk-or-treat, and then Monday is Summer’s class party and then lots of Halloween fun. I love this time of year!

I used to love making goody bags when my kids were in school. Now that they're both out and adults, I miss it. Enjoy all that fun while you can!
