    Default "Lolly bags" for kids party

    Just wondering what people put in "lolly bags" these days. Will do party bags for ds party but want to steer away from filling it with sugar. Ideas please?

    I attended a 3rd bday party last weekend and the lolly bag had gingerbread (home made), some sweets (natural confectionary company and was only a handful) and a plastic dinosaur toy.

    I think a bit of sugar is ok

    Little toys like matchbox cars, balls, stickers, mini pots of play doh, pencils. If you want to put food inside that doesn't have a lot of sugar you could go with boxes of sultanas, LCMs, mini packs of crackers, and maybe a small chocolate like a Fredo frog or something.

    I usually put a couple of (wrapped) lollies, and then bubbles, mini toys, mini stationary etc.

    My daughter is minnie mouse crazy so I got a few little minnie mouse things from the party section in big w (they have a HUGE range of party stuff!!). We did hair clips, bubbles, stamps and balloons. Also added a kinder chocolate each (not suprise egg just a little chocolate bar) and a little lollypop.

    I found lolly bags are standard at every kids party we've been too. Whether you like them or not, kids expect them. Obviously your choice whether you bother or not though.

    We only do casual parties so I lolly bags or anything. But I hate getting them. I would prefer a couple of lollies to all that junk that gets strewn through my car and ends up in the bin.

    I'm literally sitting here putting together the lolly bags for DS (6) Star Wars party next week!
    A Star Wars Pen, keyring, lolly pop, chocolate, stars wars torch with candy in it, balloon, a few wrapped lollies and a packet of Star Wars cookies in little personalised bags I found on etsy!

    Lolly bags are my pet hate (with respect to the awesomer examples above), we had a bit of a strawberry war going on recently in Perth so DD made bottles of strawberry jam instead. She did most of the cooking, bottling, designed the sticker and tied them all up. I was happy, but my nephew said "great, you just killed lolly bags!".

    My rule is that you can eat as much as you want until we get home, then it all goes in the treat box. Then the treat box comes out to make bags for movies etc. DD seems to adhere to this as it's always been that way - happy to lend the idea.
