Easy Dollar Store DIY Christmas Gift

If you have a teacher, friend or just need some last minute Christmas game prize ideas for gifts that can easily be made, look no further! We had a Christmas Party last weekend and we played a lot of Bingo so we needed some cheap prizes that would actually get used. I swung by the dollar tree and picked up stuff to make a DIY Santa sleigh made out of candy. 


Glue gun + glue sticks (you can get these for $2.99 at Joanne’s)


Dollar Tree Shopping List:

Small clear treat bags

One box Santa chocolates 

One box candy canes

Kit kat bars (I made 5 so I purchased 5)

An assortment of whatever bags of candy you like



  1. Fill your clear treat bags with an assortment of candy and then use the twisty ties to close the bag. From here I also cut strips of ribbon to tie around the bag to give them a cuter look. This is completely optional!
  2. Warm up glue gun and glue the candy canes to the kit kat candy bars to form a sleigh and let dry. 
  3. Next, glue down the Santa toy (candy) bags. 
  4. Lastly, glue on the chocolate Santa Claus. 

If you’re wanting to add a little something extra to these gifts/treats, you could add a $5 gift card from your place of choosing to make it a little more desirable. 

These are so simple and so inexpensive and everyone who won Bingo ate them right on the spot last weekend. They will be a hit!

    These are all such cute prize ideas! It has been such a long time since I’ve played bingo. I might have to convince my friends to get together to do so!

    I wish I’d seen this post earlier today. I just finished a completely uninspired teacher “gift” (taped a candy cane to a card envelope). I’ll have to remember it for next year!
