I'm throwing my oldest son a surprise birthday party!

Oh, how FUN! Does the party have any kind of specific theme? One year I threw my oldest son a Lego party and instead of gift bags, we gave out mini figures (only about 4 bucks each, so not too bad). Another year we had a movie party and handed out microwave popcorn, candy, and a soda. Yet another year we did an army theme and put temporary tattoos, dog tags, and other army type stuff in the goody bags.

As far as prizes go, do you have Michael's craft store (or something similar) in your area? They usually have bins with $1- $2 craft and toy ideas. I purchased items there before for prizes and they were a hit. They had magic kits, kits to build cars to paint, and much more.

Also, do you ever use Pinterest? They have tons of birthday ideas and I'm sure you'll find many ideas for goody bags and prizes.

Good luck and have FUN!
