    Default Birthday party gift bags

    My daughter's 3rd birthday party is this Saturday, and I need help with

    the gift bags! I actually bought a pail and shovel for each child

    (cheap), assuming I could find something (also very cheap) to put in

    them. Somehow I'm just not coming up with ideas. The last couple years

    I've done bubbles, sidewalk chalk, and beach balls, so I'd like to

    think of something different. The kids are 3-4 years old. There will

    also be a few babies/toddlers. Am I supposed to have something for them

    too? It's a Curious George theme, so I got excited when I saw small

    Curious George stuffed animals, and bought them for the little ones.

    After realizing they cost $7 a piece, I think I need to return them and

    figure out something else. Any ideas?

    Exciting!! Have you tried the dollar tree or $1 dollar store in your

    area?? I bought little books, notepads, journals, coloring books,

    etc from there and gave them to the kids. Then I would get the dollar

    bags of candy and seperate that, it wasnt much candy but the kids

    didnt want that as much as something they could use. I would throw

    in a banana.....

    WOW...I can't believe she's three already..I remember when you posted to the group and you were pregnant!

    I would probably return the stuffed $7 animals...what you get back from that should be enough money to fill the pails(depending on how many pails and how many animals there are). If the buckets aren't too big, you might try a bulky snack...like animal crackers to take up space. Hair stuff for girls is good, small cars for boys are always a hit. They have had tons of stuff at Dollar Tree near me that would be great in a bucket for gifts...small stuffed animals, snacks, coloring books,crayons. It just depends on how much you want/have to spend and how "over the top" youwant the party to be.

    Have awonderful party- 3 is such a nice age!

    How about cookie cutters from the dollar store? These can be used to shape sand objects.

    We have a birthday to day and I bought a 6 pack of bubble soap on sale for 99 cents. We also added pop-tarts and bubble gum (My daughter is 10). We have also put in the [sat when she was younger, put in crayons and sticker sheets.

    If you have a Target near you, they have had Curious George items in the

    dollar bins.

    Rubber Duckies Walgreen's had 75% off summer items we got a duckie (bigger than my 12 yr olds head) wearing a rain hat for $1.49, big character kick balls $1.49 if you knew shoe sizes they had cool flip flops and water shoes for $.49 to $1.49, mommy ducks with 3 babies for $1.49.

    At walmart you can get a big box of cheese or peanut butter crackers (as long as no one is allergic to it) for $1.67 or the same price for granola bars, indivual whale fish (like goldfish) or animal cracker packages and they also had earth friendly saying on tee shirts and onsies for $1.00.

    Dollar Tree has those cute kid print washclothes that are folded up in a tiny package that once you wet it unfolds, teddy bears in tan, brown & white and you can buy clothes and accessaries for them, girls trinket jewery, little dolls, big packs of plastic green army men, tan cowboys and indians, red fireman & blue policeman, books, puzzles, dvd's and many other great ideas all for a dollar.

    And CVS is having a big ECB deal on candy use coupons and it is an even sweeter deal.
