If you are having a Christmas party for kids, one of the things you may want to do is create party bags. This project really wouldn’t cost that much, and it is a neat thing to do. If you would like to give the kids small gifts for Christmas, try some of the ideas in this article. Christmas party bags are a big hit with kids in my area and it may just be a big one in your area.
Buying Christmas Party Bags
If you have a local Dollar Tree or Dollar General, you can buy these party bags for $1. Normally, you can get anywhere from 8 to 16 bags in one pack. These cute little bags are decorated in Christmas themes. You can also use the Christmas themed ziplock bags. These too make great party bags. So first, find the bags you want to use and decide how many you need. Getting a head count will help. That way you know how many things you have to buy.
Filling Your Christmas Party Bags with Candy
One of the things you will probably want to place in the party bags is Christmas candy. You can find candy at any store, especially Dollar Tree. The have many different kinds of candy to choose from. So, stock up on the candy you want to put in the bags. Make sure you have enough for each bag.
Adding Goodies to Your Christmas Party Bags
Goodies, or presents, whatever you want to call them is another good thing to add to your Christmas party bags. These items can include things like pencils, hair bows, small toys out the toy section, small puzzles, little coloring books and crayons, stamps, Christmas ornaments, and many other things.
A lot of things like the four coloring books in a pack for $1 can be divided up and one placed in each bag. The same thing with hair bows if you are doing hair bows. If you are fixing party bags for your Sunday school group, or something with your Church function, you can visit Christian stores to get things like bookmarks, pencils, small Bibles, and other Christian related items. In most Christian stores, they will have a little rack with really cheap items that would work great in these types of bags.
After filling your bags, all you would need is some ribbon to tie around them and some name tags. You can curl the ribbon to make it fancy. You can also print your own tags if you would like, or buy tags from the store. You can buy Christmas gift tags which stick to the bags, or you can buy the ones you tie on with ribbon.
Make this project fun. Though it can be stressful buying the stuff and fighting the crowd, the kids will make it all worth your while. J
