Help Please!

here are the bags I am making, ( they still need to be sewn up and have drawstrings inserted)  I will be embroidering each child's name on their bag.



I need some ideas please.

I am at a total loss for ideas, I have 2 girls and 4 young nieces I have no idea what to put in the grab bags for the boys that will be coming to my daughters 4th birthday party.  I have the girls taken care of, hair barrets and head bands, purses. I also have a few gender neutral items mini reusable heat/ice packs stickers, bubbles.  I will put a few home made treats in them to.

I need help thinking of something special to put in the boys loot bags  I have already made crayon rolls for the past 2 years so they already have some of them.

the only idea I had was to pick up a few sets of jacks at the dollar store and making little bags for them?  any one please help!


of note I like to sew, crochet, paper craft and am willing to try anything else really as long as it is not too time consuming

My go to place for kids parties is the oriental trading company...I get lots of ideas from there...

small balls, foam footballs, stamps with washable ink, fun shoelaces...fake cell phones, patches, glow sticks, silly bands

if you have time, you could make those small cloth juggling bags (hackey sacks) filled with beans...little boys also love small tins and boxes to put their treasures in...at 4 they start collecting rocks, shells, bugs, and other icky things to keep... Cheesy

My nephew really loves anything he can load dirt into and cart to the other side of the yard. (Farm equipment toys) Smiley
