Easter Candy Gift Bags For Kids

Easter Party Candy Gift Bags
Like most holidays, Easter can get pretty expensive around our house. Easter Candy Gift Bags have made it possible for me to keep the costs down yet give all of my grandchildren a treat (I have 19 of them!).
Actually, only 14 of them live close enough to spend Easter at Grandpa and Grandma's house, but that's enough to keep us busy.
We always have a big Easter Egg hunt in the yard. Grandpa enjoys filling the Easter eggs with candy and little slips of paper promising special treats like a trip to the dollar store or even a $1 or $5 bill.
One of my daughters lives overseas, so she asked me to make up Easter gift bags for all the kids from her and her husband. I try to be frugal, even when someone else is paying.
I went to the local dollar store and discovered these cute little favor bags decorated with hearts and purses for the girls and sports balls for the boys.
I also bought about 10 different varieties of Easter candy, chewing gum, and other favorites that I knew the kids would love.
It was a simple matter of sorting the candy, filling the bags, and tying them up with a pretty twist tie. It only cost about a dollar each in the end, which left me way under budget. Always a good thing to me.
This just goes to show that you don't have to spend a fortune to do something special for your Easter party. Simple Easter gift bags make a nice little party favor and are easy on the finances.
