    Any ideas for little goody bags that are *chicken* themed.
    Ok, my biggest angst is *the Goody bag* for my dd's Bday. Can I get some suggestions. I cannot afford expensive things and I will have about 20 kids. Many mamas will bring along older sibblings too. [​IMG] Which drives me nuts when it comes to having enough cupcakes, etc...

    Ack. Any thoughts? Anything eco friendly for 5 year olds? It's a Chicken Themed party. I'm trying to avoid the typical useless poo, but it may be unavoidable?

    Could you maybe get those fake eggs? (I know it's way past Easter) and fill them with little items such as candy, chapsticks, ect. Maybe some of those fake feathers for crafting? I don't know what else unless maybe someplace has tiny toys shaped like chickens.

    well for the bag itself my DD and I did this for GD b-day we used brown bags with handles and stamped and stickered them. you can get these at micheals or A.C. moore.

    As far as goodies you can get plastic eggs and fill them with candy
    and you can get the little farm animals to put in there

    For a game at the party you could do a version of pin the tail on the donkey

    Like put the egg in the nest or pin the wattle on the roo

    or tail feather on the Roo

    Look for straw farmer hats and bandanas for the kids

    little toy tractors for the boys

    How about little packets of seeds? Kids love planting things. Maybe you could print off directions on how to start seeds on paper and have your child decorate the bag and directions with stickers... You could also put in tounge depressors that the kids can label and decorate to identify their plants. Just a thought, and shouldnt be very expensive. Have fun!!

    Edit: Not really chicken themed, but eco friendly and chickens COULD benefit from garden scraps [​IMG]

    OMG! You guys rock my world. The chicken feathers from Michaels and arts n crafts.

    Chicken feather on the CHICKEn....

    Keep em' coming. I feel better already!
  9. Maybe you ccould get little chicken figurines and put them in a plastic easter egg so that when the kids open them it looks like they hatched. I'm not sure if you could get this since it isn't Easter, but maybe you could get some of those little yellow marshmallow Peeps to also go in the goodie bag. Good luck! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Everyone has some awesome ideas. I love the pin the feather on the Rooster idea & plastic easter egg idea. Cool ideas everyone. [​IMG]

    You can maybe get a packet of farm animals from the dollar store to split up to put in the goody bags. You may even find a packet of just chickens. My daughter loves the mini rubber chicken key chain.

    How many goody bags do you have to make up? Have you looked at the Oriental Trading website? It's (I think)

    I order things from there in bulk for Girl Scout projects.
