Who else cringes with the site of a party favor bag fun of little toys that you have to secretly dispose of over the next few week? They, like Happy Meal toys, must procreate while you sleep. I've been trying to get creative the past few years and think of inexpensive things my kids could actually use. I did a mixed CD of kid music, which was a HUGE hit but then a friend told me it was an illegal gift, so I felt bad. Then I did colored kettle corn which the parents tried to wrestle away from their children (which I'll eventually post on). This time around I dipped oreos. They are easy, cheap, and look amazing!
2 bags of oreos $6.00 (although I can get them BOGO if I plan ahead)
2 bags melting chocolate $4.00
treat bags $1.00
sprinkles .10 - a small fraction of a bottle - color to match your theme
computer printed labels and staples .10 (Thank you for celebrating with me! Love, __)
So for about $11.20 I made 23 goodie bags each with 3 dipped oreos.
It took an hour to do them all. Not bad. And if you allow it, they won't even make it back from the party! Yum!!
