Avery's Little Goody Bags

Tomorrow, my daughter Ava, is going to attend a birthday party being held for a little girl she knows from school.

With all of the holiday rush and a late invite...Avery's little gift is coming in right under the wire.

This fabric is whimsical and bright, just perfect for a 7 year old. Ahh, who am I kidding, I might have to make something up for myself in the polka dots, they are so fun.

What girl of any age couldn't use a set of zipper pouches to hold hair bands, lip glosses, polly pockets, music cds, and just about anything else you could think of that might catch a 7 year old's fancy?

With the zipper pouches go Ava's instructions to take copious notes at the party tomorrow. Her 7th birthday is right around the corner this month and she has been itching for a grand party full of shrill and gleeful 7 year old girls. Other than cake and ice cream and a pinata full of candy she's come up blank as to other ideas on how to entertain a dozen 1st graders for 2 hours. I'm holding a candle that we will find an easy craft that will entertain the troops for 1/2 an hour and not permanently affix glue to my kitchen floor. Please speak up if you have any ideas.
