Supplies: 
  • 2 paper grocery bags per kit
  • Paper gift shred or shredded paper bags
  • Dress-up items from any dollar store (get anything fun and wacky that you can find --- pirate hats, fairy wings, enormous sunglasses, fake hair, feather boas, Hawaiian leis, and more)
  • Safety scissors
Instructions: 
  1. Go to your local dollar store and find silly items to fill your favor bags with, like pirate hats, fairy wings, enormous sunglasses, fake hair, feather boas, Hawaiian leis, and more. Choose bright colors and crazy textures to spark children's interest in the mysterious contents.
  2. Lay a paper grocery bag flat and cut a handle buy making a circle above the folded area at the bottom of the bag.
  3. Open the bag and stand it up. Crumple up another grocery bag loosely at the bottom of the bag to raise the contents of the bag so that they can be slightly seen when children take their bags home.
  4. Arrange your dress up items so that you can see a tiny bit of each surprise. Top with a little brown paper gift shred or shredded paper bags to give the look and feel of a nest like Chica's!
