DIY Children's birthday party lolly bags

Joshua's Thomas the tank engine theme 2nd birthday party is this week and I have been busy making the lolly bags for his guests. Here is how I did it:

Instructions:
Step 1: The first thing you need to know is how many guests you are having. Then you can buy enough lollies and lolly bags/boxes for each child or guest that is coming to the party.


Step 2: Once I have all the lolly bags and lollies, I like to spread them out on the bench and evenly sort the lollies between all the bags.


Step 3: I add the biggest lollies and candy first and then add the tiny ones last.

Step 4: Then I put all the lollies in the bags. I will check that they all have enough in them. Next we will seal them.
 
Step 5: I normally put a small message on a circular piece of paper that I will glue the lolly bag shut with. This year it says 'Thank you for attending Joshua's 2nd birthday party'.
 
 I need to cut out enough so I have one per lolly bag.

Step 6: Now I fold the lolly bags in half and glue the circular message on the back of each lolly bag. Allow an hour or so for them to dry.

Step 7: I normally put them on a serving tray and place them near the front door. That way I can give them to our guests as they leave the party and thank them for attending.
