We're having DD's 1st Bday and I am thinking about putting together a goody bag. The problem is we are having 9 or so kids all being different age. I want to make different goody bags. There will be 3 kids under one, four toddlers and then four kids ages 8-14.
I wanted to make a sock monkeys for little kids but then I probably won't be able to finish seven by the party. I then thought to put a bath toy for each young child
What would you recommend?
I would really like something natural and no cookies or candy. Honestly, no food for that matter.
What do you think about books? But then I have no idea what 8-14 old read.
Any ideas?
I want a goody bag consisting of one nice item rather than a bag full of stuff that gets lost in the car on the way home
Thanks a lot!!!!

Puzzles - you can get nice puzzles for $3-$5 and get more complicated ones for the older kids.

How about a small stuffed animal? Kids of all ages appreciate those. But if you really want something different for the older kids, a puzzle book (and maybe a pencil to go with it) is a good choice. You won't need different puzzle books for the different ages either- I'd try and keep it simple and have one "big kid gift" that are all the same.
