    Sweets 2nd Dec 17 at 3:35 PM

    Not sure this is the best place to ask but here goes. I have been asked to put together a sweet bag for 61 children in the school l work in as a little gift for Christmas. Does anyone know where l can get sweets cheaply to fill them please. I have been to the supermarkets but with 61 to fill it works out really expensive. TIA

    Try Home Bargains or B&M, I've seen big tubs/buckets of sweets (Swizzels etc) for 3-5 and these can be split up. I used cellophane bags printed with Christmassy patterns (Amazon/eBay) and tied up with coloured curling ribbon
