When I was planning Lincoln's second birthday party, I knew I wanted to put together some sort of "goody bag" for his little friends and cousin who would be attending the party. I really didn't want to go overboard and I didn't want to spend a ton of money, since all of the kids are under age three and really wouldn't remember any of it - but I tend to never be satisfied if I just do something "normal" (like using purchased goody bags)! So I came up with a pretty easy plan - and managed to assemble my Mickey and Minnie Mouse goody bags in just a couple of hours!
Here's what you will need to make these bags!
-White Lunch Sacks
-Yellow Patterned Paper (one 12x12 sheet should make at least 12, probably more)
-Red Polka Dot Ribbon (for Minnie)
-Adhesive of Choice
-Hot Glue Gun + Glue
-Stickers to Seal the Bags (optional)
Here's How I Made Them!
First, I printed off several Mickey heads onto the black cardstock using the Mickey Mouse template that I made for Lincoln's Mickey party invitations, and cut them out. I adhered one Mickey to each bag.
Next, I cut tall triangle shapes from the yellow paper, for party hats. I just cut them by hand (they weren't all very straight). I adhered these on top of the Mickey heads. Next, I used hot glue to attach the pom-poms to the tops of the hats! I also used hot glue to attach the ribbon bows on the Minnie bags. So cute!
After that, I just stuffed the bags, folded down the tops, and sealed them with some Mickey Mouse stickers that I found at Hobby Lobby (I don't seem to have a picture of the back of the bags - oops)! I hand-wrote each child's name on the bags, but it would be cute to attach names cut from a Mickey font.
My bags were filled with GoGo Squeez, sticker sheets, bangle bracelets for the girls, Hot Wheels for the boys, and some Mickey/Minnie crayons, mini coloring books and bubbles that I picked up at the party store. Lincoln's friends said they were a big hit!
