Easy Party Bag Filler Ideas

If you are making your own party bags and are unsure what to include the following fillers are guaranteed to pull in the crowds.  Consider adding the following items to transform a plain old party bag into a magical treasure trove.   We recommend 5 small fillers per bag which may include sweets and bubbles.  However, this number may vary considerably depending on what you include.  For example if you are adding a higher value or larger item, this will dramatically reduce the number of goodies in the bag.

These are amongst our most frequently ordered party bag fillers.

Temporary Tattoos

Temporary Tattoos are budget friendly, come in a huge range of themes and are loved by children and adults alike.  Many a dinner party has added a little spark by providing guests with a tattoo to adorn.  Single Smiley Tattoos are a firm favourite because of their wide appeal factor.  Currently our Easter tattoos are proving popular as they make a fabulous addition to Easter hunts.  Unicorn, Dinosaur and Superhero tattoos are also amongst our best sellers.

Colouring Activity items and Stickers

These could be colouring activities; crayons and sticker activity books work wonders and make an easy party bag come to life.  You could even consider handing these out at the beginning of the party and turning it into an activity to keep your guests occupied before playing party games and eating.  Everyone loves a sheet of stickers, and the themes are endless.  Space sticker sheets are all the rage right now!  Jigsaws and puzzles are also a great option.


Bouncy balls are always an easy party bag filler option and remain a firm favourite for goodie bags. They are a toy loved by children of many ages and a few adults as well! With a bouncy ball you can play many different games and keep children entertained whilst the grownups enjoy a moment to relax

 Sweets & Bubbles

Sweets & bubbles are the last thing to add, a fruit lolly, Swizzler chews and love hearts and ideal additions.  Add the final touch with a neon tube of bubbles, magic touchable bubbles or a bubble pop.

Eco-friendly toys

As people become more environmentally conscious many of our customers are turning towards eco-conscious party bag options.  Fill a recyclable paper party bag with eco-friendly contents.  Packs of pencils, eco-friendly jungle animal or unicorn 3d puzzles and colour your own jigsaws (unicorn or smiley) are a good option!
