12 Boo-tiful Ideas for Preschool Halloween Goodie Bags

FacebookTwitterGoogle+TumblrPinterest

My daughter is already talking about her preschool class Halloween party. Since this is her second year of preschool, she knows the ropes: she’ll get to show off her costume, eat copious amounts of candy (before lunch!), and play holiday-themed games.

She also knows that there will be goodie bags, a fact I always seem to forget about until the day before. True to my organizationally-challenged nature, I end up scouring the grocery store at the eleventh hour searching for suitable treats.

This year I’m vowing to do better. And since I know they’ll be getting plenty of sugary treats elsewhere, I’m focusing on handing out cute, personalized bags with a non-candy treat or two tucked inside.

Here are few ideas!
