Lego Birthday Party: The Goody Bags

Goody bags are an important part of a birthday party (so say my kids.) I love making goody bags! And these were so much fun to make. (Although it’s getting more difficult as my kids get older to come up with great ideas.) I don’t like all the cheap, useless things in goodie bags. My kids come home with them and they just sit around for months before I throw them away.  (The goody bags, that is… not my kids.)  =o)
I found some primary colored bags at Michaels and added “bumps” to them with my circle cutter and dimensionals (to make them “pop”.)  =o)  They look like Lego blocks, don’t they?
We filled them with Lego chocolates that I made.
They don’t even look like chocolate do they?  The topper was a free printable I found here.  (Thank you Amber from Crazy Little Projects.  Yeah for free printables!)
I found these fun containers at Michaels and filled them with Lego candy that I found at the candy store at the mall.  (I’m sure you can find the candy online too.)
I don’t know about your kids but mine are totally into hand sanitizer.  Is that strange?  They love it and I’m okay with that.  It’s better than mud, right?  =o)  But check out the name of this hand sanitizer – Dragon Blood!  So cool!
I’m pretty proud of our Lego heads.  I found the idea on obSEUSSed and loved it.  We just painted baby food jars and added faces with a sharpie marker.
Then we filled them up with M&Ms.  (Who doesn’t like M&Ms?!)
We also put gum in the bags but that has nothing to do with Lego =o)  We just wanted to add one more thing.
My son is pretty happy with how they turned out.  What do you think?
