Thank you to Oriental Trading Company for providing the party favors used in creating the activity goodie bags featured below. All opinions expressed are my own.
Earlier this week, my oldest turned 11. He'll be moving onto middle school next year and I'm still having a little trouble accepting it. Since this is his last year of grade school, I wanted to make sure we sent some fun goodie bags to school for his birthday. We always send non-food goodie bags due to there being so many students suffering from a variety of allergies, plus the school does not allow sweets to be sent in for birthday celebrations. We do this for all 3 of our children, who all happen to have birthdays in January. Sometimes it's difficult to come up with a fun new idea. Thank goodness I found some inspiration from Oriental Trading Company!
Our twins will be turning 8 later this month. Their goodie bags were easy to put together. Since our family went to the local Super MegaFest comic convention, our children have been obsessed with drawing their own comics. So, when I saw these superhero-themed party favors, I just knew I had to create something fun with them. That's when I had the idea to make DIY comic book kits for the twins' 2nd grade classmates!

I made the above free printable word search puzzle with the help of Discovery Education's Puzzlemaker. This particular puzzle is difficult and would be perfect for adults and older children. Enjoy!
