Transcript:Halloween Party Goodie Bag IdeasHi, I'm Kaytie Sproul, here for About.com, and today I'm going to give you some Halloween party goodie bag ideas. The options are really endless, so your goal should be to make a goodie bag that's both fun and functional, not to mention age-appropriate.
Great Halloween Party Goodie Bag IdeasHere are a few ideas for your upcoming Halloween party: Let's start with the bag itself. You can pick up Halloween-themed party bags at just about any craft or discount store, as well as most of the goodies that go inside. However, if you want to add a personal touch, you can purchase a set of brown paper bags, and create personalized packages with ink pens, glitter, stickers and whatever else you have in your craft kit.
Filling Halloween Party Goodie Bag IdeasOnce your bags are ready, it's time to fill them up, beginning with something sweet. No goodie bag would be complete without candy, and just about any kind will do. Be sure it comes in a sealed wrapper or box which is both sanitary and safe. Suckers and blow pops are a favorite among all children, but you should probably avoid them if your party-goers are under five years of age.
Tips for Halloween Party Goodie Bag IdeasJust a tip: If you're going to include items in the goody bag that could cause a mess, like bubbles or silly string, be sure to warn the kids in advance and mention it to their parents as well. Next, Halloween-themed pens, pencils, and erasers are functional party tokens that can be enjoyed long past the special day itself. Additional goodie bag ideas that will inspire the imagination are stickers, coloring books, and plastic bugs. Glow sticks are yet another popular item amongst children of all age groups and can provide some safety lighting while they're out trick-or-treating. Along the same lines, small flashlights can serve the same purpose and be used for years to come.
A costume item is always a fun surprise in goodie bags and ideal for a holiday that's all about make-believe. Fake teeth, wax lips, or a small mask will fit nicely with all the other treats and will round-off the perfect Halloween gift bag. There's no better way to thank your Halloween party guests than by giving them a fun-filled goodie bag. It's a fantastic way to add a little pizazz to this spook-tacular holiday and won't soon be forgotten.
