I am so excited for Halloween, and there are a couple of reasons for it. Number one, my husband has been away for army training since the middle of June, and two weeks before Halloween he’ll finally be done and be back home just in time for trick or treating. Number two, I’m pretty excited about my kids Halloween costumes this year. JD is only 4, so it took him a while to finally decide what he was going to be for Halloween. When he said that he wanted to be Woody for Halloween 3 times in a row, I knew he had “made up his mind.” I decided I was going to be ambitious this Halloween and “make” his costume this year! And when I say “make,” I mean pulling stuff together to make a costume, but hopefully not wasting too much money and maybe get to use some of the stuff again after Halloween is over.
With JD being Woody, Danny who will be 2 in three months (that’s so crazy!) will be Buzz Lighter! They’re going to look so cute together! My husband and I like to dress up too, so I’ll be Jessie and my husband’s thinking of going as Andy. JD and I kept coming up with a few different options for him… but he didn’t like the idea of being a green soldier, Rex, Mr. Potato Head, or the Piggy bank. At least Andy will be easy!
So, with Halloween on my mind, I’m getting a small head start on some Halloween printables. These Halloween Goodie Bags were quick and easy to make, and that’s what I love about them. I whipped three goodie bags in less than 10 minutes (that includes printing the printables, cutting, and setting up the sewing machine).
If you’re looking for something fun for your kids to pass out in their classes this Halloween, you’ll definitely be needing these!
Small candy (Candy Corn, Hershey Nuggets, fun sized Kit Kat, etc)
Cut out your printables.
Fold them in half. This makes it easier to sew without having to worry if the papers aren’t lined up.
Sew 3 sides and leave the top open.
Insert your candy of choice. It’s best to use small candy with these, like candy corn, or 1-2 Hershey Nuggets, etc. These aren’t very big pouches.
Sew the top closed and you’re done!
If you don’t have a sewing machine, you can staple the sides closed. If you don’t want to sew or staple them shut, I’ve included the front of the goodie bags that you can cut out and paste onto a bag. They’re perfect for any Halloween occasion, and your friends will love them!

He was pretty happy to be eating candy. Danny was napping and missed out on the photo op!
