If your tween wants to throw a Christmas party, or if you're in charge of a school party, a scout party or a team party, you may have to stuff a few dozen Christmas goody bags for your tween party goers. The holiday season is the perfect time to offer tweens something a little different. When purchasing items for Christmas goody bags, use the season as your inspiration. And remember, discount and dollar stores are great places to find inexpensive items that are festive and ideal for the preteen crowd.
