This year we made each girl’s class a special treat. We use a template for tiny little boxes/bags and then put some candy inside!

These cute little templates were downloaded from

  1. Kids just love getting their own personalized gifts and these little carriers are super creative. You can also fill them with pretzels, erasers, stickers, pencils, etc, and just a teeny tiny bit of candy. Mine aren’t as cute as this, but I do like making personalized bags to make the kids feel special.

  2. These are really nice. I know teachers really appreciate parents that help out and do fun things like this for their class rooms.

  3. What a wonderful idea! I’m going to have to remember that one for at least the special kids in my neighborhood. Oh goodness, they’re all special. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Such a wonderful idea! I’ve never heard of, but I just visited the site and found all kinds of cute, clever, and fun ideas. Thanks for sharing!

  5. really cute boxes, my sons class had a party and at first we were asked to bring things in and then due to so many allergies we were told not to.

  6. Love the presentation! I wonder if you will do something similar for Valentines Day.

  7. Oooo! This is wonderful~! I’m so glad to see that other people were creative on Halloween. We made goodie bags filled with candy and little toys to hand out to the tricker treaters (although there weren’t that many this year).

  8. These are sooooo cute. You’re making miss the days when they still had the classroom parties. Ours are in middle / high school now.

  9. I am envious! I wish I still had the time to do those projects. We did a similar one for my daughter’s birthday, but as a purse. I put out lots of jewels, sequins, ribbons and bling for them to decorate how they wanted and that was their prize bag for all the games we played. I had to enlarge the pattern but it worked great!

  10. What a great idea and so creative too, I loved it when my kids were in school and a parent went through all the work and effort and did something like this, besides I think the kids preferred it too over mass produced store bought things, I know I would of loved to receive a gift like this that was made from the heart, & it really shows how much the parents care to be involved in their child’s school activities homemade gifts might take alot of work (& money) but its these kinds of gestures that help children feel secure & loved when they know their parents are making them a priority. It really is very thoughtful gift idea and thanks for the tips

  11. You did a great job! I am going to borrow your idea for Christmas treats. My girls will enjoy helping me. Thanks for sharing about craftjr. I had never heard of it.

  13. I always am overwhelmed with my kids wanting to so those ‘magazine” cute treats for others…but now my youngest is 11 and am really gonna miss that. I love this idea as one of my daughter’s b-days is the week before Halloween and these would make great party favors!

  14. These are perfect and seems so easy to make and great to get your kids involved too. Thanks for the suggestion.

  15. these are very nice ^^.. I can also make one of these as birthday loot bags or any occasion for that matter. thanks for sharing the site, I will check for more designs.
