Easy DIY Halloween Party Favors

There are so many cute Halloween party favor ideas floating about the web, like the witch's broom goodie bags for example, though they do require some DIY experience. These tin-tie bakery bags are the perfect size for a Halloween goodie bag, and they require no crafting skills. I love howthe favor bags I made them with are cute enough for kids but still nice enough for the grown-ups as well. All you need are the bakery bags, ribbon, and 3D Halloween stickers from the craft store. You can use the smaller bag pictured above or a larger bakery bag with a window display. I like to fill the larger ones with treats to give out as holiday presents to neighbors and teachers.



Simply fill the bags with a Halloween treat (homemade or store-bought), close them up and tie them off with ribbon, then affix a sticker to each bag. These are food-grade bags, so they're perfect to fill with homemade fall treats like popcorn, kettle corn, or Halloween chocolates. Try my DIY gourmet popcorn

The Cutest Heart-Themed Gifts for Tween Girls

Heart Themed Gifts for Tweens

Older children who are nearing ten and pre-teen girls can be a little tough to shop for. They're stuck between kid stuff and things they're not yet old enough to do. My own 9 year old daughter is already dying to be a teenager. She'd much rather get a new purse than a new toy. I love to spoil my girls on Valentine's Day. In my mind, it's a day to celebrate those you love, whether it be romantic or family or a best friend. It's how my mom does it, and now it's how I do it too. Her care package to me is on it's way as we speak. For Valentine's Day, of course some love-themed gifts are essential. The shops at the mall make it easy by stocking up on the top trends. Stick with stores like Claire's or Justice, and you can't go wrong. Often time I'll even shop at the teen stores like Charlotte Russe. Of course the clothes don't fit her yet, but they have so many fun accessories from $5.00 and up. When in doubt, by something glittery or animal print, or both!

Tween Girls Valentine's Outfit

My daughters always appreciate a new outfit for any holiday. For Valentine's Day, of course a heart-patterned dress is best!

Valentine's Gifts for Tween Girls

For the young girl who is closer to being a teen, give a nice makeup set or fun perfume - like a cute heart-shaped bottle from the Very Wang Princess Collection. For the sporty girl, I'd definitely grab a few things from Justice. They have so many cute sports-themed gifts like gym bags and sport bottles, all of which have been thoroughly put through a bedazzler of some sort.
