Should I put M&M's in the goody bags for my daughter's 5th birthday party guests?
My daughter’s 5th birthday party is coming up. For the goody bags, which are actually not bags, they’re pail/shovels, they’re getting coloring activity books and 48 crayons (all three things – pail/shovel, coloring book and crayons are from dollar store, $1 each, so we’re up to $3 each goody bag so far).
I figured I needed something to hold the crayons and coloring book, so instead of a gift bag, I’d just put it in the pail and the pail/shovel is like another gift, and it also becomes the “bag.”
I also have two large bags of M&M’s, which I was planning to divvy up into smaller celophane bags with maybe a ribbon and tag on each, and throwing that into the goody bag (goody pail). However, I know a lot of parents don’t want their kids eating chocolate and candy.
I’m not going to the store to buy any other kind of food for the candy, so please don’t tell me to put pretzels or something else in instead. At this point, it’s only a matter of whether or not to put in the M&M’s.
The party is tomorrow so that’s why I’m not able to substitute anything else for the M&M’s.
