Party bags for DD(10)'s party?

Hey this old chestnut! grin

To start with, I really enjoy doing party bags and DC enjoy planning them with me. I don't usually spend a lot on them, maybe around £1.50 each, or sometimes I incorporate the main party bag item into the party as an activity or similar.

But this year DD is having a party at the climbing wall and I'm not sure party bags are appropriate for 10 year olds (well most of them will still be 9). So I'm not sure what to do. I'm waiting to hear if there's somewhere to do food, so at this stage I don't even know if I'm going to be feeding the guests, so would like to at least send them home with something to make up for the empty stomach. hmm

Any suggestions please? There will be a mix of girls and boys. Thanks.

i so desperately want to say don't bother! they're old enough not to expect party bags..

BUT I will bite my tongue as you clearly want to do them grin

hmmmm... hard to do for that little money i think, i am trying to think of something that's a bit unusual that would work for boys and girls alike....

give them all a carabina(sp?) to use as a key ring with a tag attached saying "thanks for coming-hope you had a great time!"

Thanks for the ideas. The carabiner is a really good idea with the note attached. I like it! A google brought up the other site and a suggestion there was some glow sticks. I saw some today in Asda funnily enough for £1.50 a pack as I was looking at them for DS's bonfire party in November. So that's a thought as well.

I've found these which look perfect as the girls will clip them onto their school bags. They also do the carabiners with a little torch on which will be perfect for the boys. Not bad at £1.84 each.

I've had a look on ebay and the little organza bags are next to nothing so I could put a keyring plus a chocolate and a note in. I'm not sure what I'd put the boys one in though as I don't think they'd appreciate an organza bag. I could just use some small white paper bags, like you put penny sweets in, as I really don't think the boys would notice what it came in. grin

Glad you liked the idea-my children love carabiners for some reason
