Valentine Goody Bags

I have to admit. I had a major Mom guilt moment last week when I realized I have done nothing for my daughter's class pretty much all school year. I am the head room parent for my 1st and 4th grade sons and that has kept me so busy that I have really slacked off on doing anything for her. Valentine's Day is next week so I figured I better step it up! This is the last party of the year already so I really need to do something special for her. Since I have to be in my 4th graders classroom for the party, I decided to make up some really cool goody bags for her classmates but after searching through Oriental Trading, I decided to go with these super cool Treat Boxes instead! I was so excited when they arrived and they are DEFINITELY going to be a big hit!

I bough some really cute stuff to put inside the boxes. I got pink fortune cookies, scratch art heart crafts, Valentine's day candy such as Suckers, Kit Kats, Conversation Hearts, Starbursts, Skittles and Tootsie Rolls and I also found some of those Valentine Paddle Balls and Kazoo's! Everything fit inside of the boxes perfectly too!

The finished product rocks! I can't wait to pass these out to Emma's classmates next Tuesday!!!

I made 24 total for her class which worked out great because these boxes come in packs of 12.  I paid less than $4/pack so that was a plus too! I was worried that they might be hard to fold together because they come flat but they pop right into place and then it just takes seconds to close them up! How cute are these?!?!?! I filled all 24 boxes and had them all closed up within 20 minutes today! So excited, maybe I might earn some of my "good mom" points back. HA!

You might still be able to order these boxes if you do expedited shipping if you are still looking for good ideas for Valentine's Day parties!!! I bought everything from OrientalTrading.Com and Walmart!


I love comments!! Thanks for taking the time!
