How to do kids goody bags

The first goody bags I made for kids was last year when my daughter turned four.  I asked her preschool for ideas on what I should do.  She said that all goody bags have to be the same.  They also should have a couple of yummy treats.  Kids like the little toys but they love candy.  It's important to also ask about allergies.  I bought toys from the dollar store and Oriental Trading.  The candy type goodies were from the grocery.  Fruit chews, suckers, hard candy and nut free treats are fun.
I glued on paper from DCWV.  The boy goody bags had DCWV Nautical stack and the girls paper was a floral stack.  I used up old ribbon so the ribbon closures were different on the girls bags.  No complaints.  Yay!

Loom Band Hair Style

This is a cute hairstyle that I do every morning for my daughter.  She has very fine hair and most hairstyles just fall out.  I have done this hairstyle for a friend's daughter who has wavy thick hair.  It looked cute.

Just a note that the bottom elastic can be omitted if you would like two ponytails which I prefer.  However, my little Sofie only likes one ponytail.  This is the above picture.

Easy and Quick Altered Clothespins using spray paint

I wanted a cute closure for the goody bags for my daughter's little birthday soiree and thought clothespins would be fun.  They are cheap ($1.25 for a pkg of 50) and customizable.

Here are pics of the goody bags:
