Gather a group of friends and host a Birthday Bag party where you make your own birthday bags to donate to families.
What To Include In The Birthday Bags
Items should be suitable for kids ages 3-12 (or you can make gift bags specifically for infants and toddlers or teenagers). About 8-10 new items should go into each bag with a total value of ten or more dollars. An effort should be made to see that one “lasting” item like a plush animal or book is in each bag. Below are some suggestions, but let your imagination be your guide.
- Crayons & Stickers
- Cards & Yo Yos
- Books & Games
- Whistles & Mini-Frisbees
- Bubbles & Pencils
- Coloring or activity books & notepads
- Balls & Pens
- Puzzles & Small plush animals
- Slinkys & Novelty toys
