I made 20 Back To School Treat Bags for the kids at church this weekend. I actually forgot to take a picture before I gave them all away but I did have 1 left over. I did a blue theme for the boys, a pink theme for the girls and the yellow themed were the extra ones. 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
Eraser- to remind you that each day you can start with a clean slate. Everybody makes mistakes but Jesus always forgives. Others should too.
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.
Bubble Gum- will encourage you to be persistent. "Stick with it" and you can! All things are possible with God!
Over all I have a little over $1.00 in each bag. Thanks to the dollar tree!
