Any unique ideas for loot bags at 6 year olds birthday party?

Hey everyone! I'm looking for some ideas for loot bags at my sons birthday party. I know parents get tired of the whole 'bag full of candy and cheap toys' thing. Any ideas? Just a note, there will be girls and boys there, all around 6 years old. Thanks in advance!

  • I once bought big plastic balls at Toys R Us and wrote each child's name on it in big letters with a sharpie. It was a huge hit. The parents loved not going home with more crap.

    That is such a cute idea! I might have to use that. :)

    I was going to suggest things like colored pencils, a coloring book, stickers...or maybe a little craft project with all of the items to make it in the bag with instructions.
