I know it's a side issue, but some people mentioned throwing lolly bags away and others said that was rude.
I don't think it's rude. I think it's polite to take one if offered, as the host has undoubtedly put time into making them. What you then do with them is up to you. I've often thrown things away from them, as the toys haven't always been age appropriate, there have been sweets (at a time when DD wasn't allowed them), or there have been lots of little things that would clutter up the place. It depends on what it is and the age of the kid.
I always appreciate the effort someone has gone to, but that doesn't mean I always keep the contents! I'd kind of expect the same with ones I make too...

Re: Party Etiquette
I don't expect a lolly bag but I have never been to an Australian kids party that didn't give one. I do like the idea because invariably the kids are sad to leave the party and it helps get them out the door.
But for a park, it's just more stuff to lug along really. I would do something easy, wands or bubbles etc, as someone suggested, with a thank you attached. Then you can carry one bag and easily give them out at the end.

Re: Party Etiquette
I eat the lollies myself. Lol.
Jasper turned 4 & I did them for the first time.
$1 bubble wands at the park sound lovely.

I used to make lolly bags for my little sisters birthdays and it was never a big deal. The ones she collected mum would put aside and let her have a few Lollies a day over the next week or whatever. Now days most have some favours and a lollipop which is great for my nephew as he is autistic and a bag full of Lollies makes him a handful! So when my Bub has parties i will be keeping Lilly content low and some bubbles etc that way hopefully there something each child is allowed to have as a token thank you

Thanks for all the replies
I LOVE the bubble idea. I might do that.
Normally parties at home we do party bags, however, the lack of repsonses and having it at the park has got me wondering. At least with bubbles we will definately use them so they won't be wasted.
