I actually found several cute ideas from twopeasinbucket but didn't have a whole lot of money to invest in them so I keep them very simple.
I put in pencils, erasers, pencil sharpeners, rubber grips, highlighters, and lots of candy. I also typed a little card and attached it to the bags. It reads
Student Survival Kit

Sucker- to remind you not to be a "sucker." Be your own person. Remember WWJD!
Pencil- to "write" your wrongs.
Pencil Sharpener- to remind you to stay "sharpened" Always keep your heart and mind on Jesus.
