    Usually a couple of chocolates (freddos or similar), a party blower, lollies, lolly pop and some sort of small toy, like a car.

    I'm boycotting lollies & chocolates next year. For DS, I'll be putting in lego mini-sets I got off ebay (was about $30ish for 25 sets). I'm sick of my kids being given bucketloads of sugary stuff so instead of adding to it, I'm setting an example. A friend made mini colouring in books that her hubby bound at work.

    I'm not a fan of Lollie bags . My DD1 who is 3.8 . Just went to a birthday party and was given two bags of pure sugar .. She doesn't eat Lollies as we have never given them to her , so she couldn't have anything from the bag ..
    Although we were lucky and it had in it some funny glasses , a necklace , a little ball toy . So she had those ..

    There's lots of ways to customize them. We went to one recently where the kids got a pack of mini gingerbread men, a lolly snake, a mini box of smarties, a few small chocolates, a mini box of sultanas, and some tattoos.

    We ways put a few Lollies in and a few party favors. I don't like doing popcorn for the choke factor.

    For dd1's first party I did customized bags so the babies got a bib and balloon.

    My kids don't eat lollies so for DD's party I wrapped up a 'Little Golden Book' for all the children to take home instead of a lollie bag.

    Glad I'm not the only one who doesn't do lollies

    I did stickers, homemade playdough, a balloon, glow in the dark wall decos and figurines for DS's last party. All dinosaur themed.

    I think we did one lollipop, then it was a colouring booklet that was printed at home, some crayons, a yoyo, a train whistle (guess the theme ) and stickers/tattoos. We avoided the lollies as being allergy kids its so frustrating to get a bag full of things they just can't eat and seeing them get disappointed.

    I did balloons, I can twist a bit so I did a bear on a hoop for all the kids. Is cheap as chips 100 balloons cost about 10 dollars and you can find tutorials on YouTube. Kids love balloon models even the simple dog. It does take a bit more time than a party bag but no sugar or plastic and you don't have to store it either, it will pop or can be popped.

    As a parent I do quite enjoy eating the lollies though, prob DH and I eat 75% of them :-).
    My personal preference is for lollies over dollar shop plastic toys (Lego of course is another matter). Homemade playdough is nice, I don't like the plastic wastage in the tiny gift playdough tubs. One can never have enough crayons, or stickers/tattoos.

    The kids got homemade playdough from their daycare centre last year. It smelt like ginger bread yum yum and lasted ages.

    DH & I usually eat the lollies too. But I'm not keen on it because I feel guilty taking something that belongs to the kids, even if I won't let them have it and it's not good on the waistline either.

    I think with the internet now, it's so easy to find simple and creative things that are not sugar based.

    Default Kids lolly bags

    I'm not a fan of lolly bags. For my little boys party recently I bought two 1kg tubs of playdo from Kmart which were I think $3 each and a packet of 24 mini bubbles for maybe $6 and put a decent handful of playdo and a mini bubbles in each bag for the kids. The kids loved them and I have plenty left over

    I don't either. Figure they going to eat crap at the party so what's the harm in a lolly here or there

    I very rarely buy lollies for my kids. So I don't mind the lollie bags. The girls eat a few and usually forget about the rest. More for me!!!

    Nah, I don't mind kids getting lollies, but my kids are fussy, and don't like most of them.. We normally only buy natural confectionery ones, so they often don't like the flavors of other brands, but happy for them to try them..

    When I put lollies in, I only do the individually wrapped ones though, but lollies aren't the main focus of ours.. My DD just had a pamper party, so I gave a red tinted moogoo lip gloss to all the girls (the party cost had gift bags included, but I added it as an extra). For DS who turned 4 last year, his bags had a little book that I got for 50 c each at target, a little stationery set (pencil, eraser, notepad and something else) that I paid $1.50 each at kmart, a choc frog, a sticker page (i got a book on sale), and DS hand decorated the paper bags we used..
