Please let us know in the comments your thoughts, concerns, additional questions. Comments are moderated, so please be kind.

Thanks for reading!

The Goody Gang

Why are there only 4 or 8 bags in your Goody Go Bags packages?

Have you ever found yourself with a lot of leftover odds and ends after putting together treat bags? We sure have--and we never felt quite comfortable just discarding everything, or giving all of those to our children (who already have toy debris tracked in every room of the house), or donating our random leftovers to someone who would clearly recognize that they were random leftovers.

Or have you ever wanted to purchase other pre-filled treat bags for your group of 12 or 17 or 22, but found that you could only purchase bags in lots of 30?

We usually package 8 bags into our Goody Go Bags that are theme-focused for classrooms, church groups, after-school activities, teams, or some kinds of parties. These groups tend to be somewhat larger, but not necessarily LARGE--for example, some classrooms or birthday parties have 30 students, and some have 7. By packaging in quantities of 8, we give our Busy People options to meet their needs while also reducing the hassle and expense of dealing with unneeded bags and possible waste. And in some situations, we can then offer even more flexibility with one or 4-packs of that same theme with the "leftovers". 

Sometimes, we package 4 bags into some of our themed bags that are more typically used for smaller groups, such as sleepovers, some birthday parties, treats for adults, and others. The same reasons apply as with 8-packs: these groups tend to be somewhat smaller, but not necessarily SMALL. Hopefully this reduces hassle, expense, and waste, too.

Why aren't there Activity Bags with supplies for more than 1, 2, or 3 individuals?

Our Activity Bags are geared toward more to an individual adult or child, one-to-one, or one-to-some adult-child interactions or supervision: home activities with parents, grandparents, babysitters, or caregivers; friend activities that are not group events; multiple opportunities for one child or adult to practice or craft; practicing a specific skill or process; gifts; or exploring a new type of activity for fit and interest.

So that was a mouthful to say that these are truly not for group activities. ><

Can I choose what's in each goody bag?

The products in all of our Goody Go Bags are curated around specific themes. Every individual goody bag in a Goody Go Bag has identical contents. We include pictures and descriptions of our filler items for each GGB so that you know exactly what you're getting. So when you choose your theme, you are choosing the contents of each individual treat bag in that unit.

If you wanted a different situation--say, individualized goody bags for all 8 boys at your son's birthday sleepover, rather than 8 identically-themed goody bags--then we would love to work with you on a Custom Goody Go Bag order HERE

I have a great suggestion for an Activity Bag or Goody Go Bag. How can I request this?

Oh my goodness, we LOVE great suggestions here! Please feel free to use the Contact Us form HERE or to email directly. We might not always be able to reply immediately...or later...or at all, but we truly would be grateful for insight into ways that we can take something else off of your to-do list! <3 And we will work hard to see what we can offer that is reasonably priced, safe, and interesting.

I don't get your "Extra Goodies". Like, do they even HAVE bags???



No they don't.

Well, some do sometimes, but they are not here to be parts of bags. They are here because they offer the Gang some inspiration, encouragement, new opportunities, new ideas, or sometimes just simply convenience. There's more to us than just Bags, although having simple, low-cost solutions to some daily complications is always a goal--but we are also parents, educators, creators, seekers, scrappers, stitchers, appreciators, readers, clutterers, and life-long learners ourselves.
