summer party loot bag idea

I can't take credit for this idea - my friend Julie did this loot bag for her son's birthday party last Summer and I thought it was GENIUS. So genius that I copied it for Oscar's birthday party this past Sunday. Shovels are from Target, and candy is from Bulk Barn. Making these loot bags were a great deal of fun. I put everything we needed to make the bags on the floor, put the candies in their own bowls and Oscar helped make the loot bags - counting out exact worms and frogs for each shovel and helping me tie the ribbon. It was a fun activity to do together and we talked about how we'd be giving them to people to say thank you for coming to his party!
