These Leprechaun Loot Bags filled with gold foil coin chocolate candy and topped with a St. Patrick's Day themed baggy toppers are perfect for school parties!
Confession: I am not crazy about the use of leprechauns, rainbows, and pots of gold in St. Patrick's Day celebrations as they are not really tied to the holiday. However, I realize that when it comes to school parties, kids just want to have fun. And eat candy. These Leprechaun Loot Bags are both fun and filled with gold coin chocolate candy, so they are popular with kids!
You can make them for an entire class or you can help your children to make them for their friends. There is even a place on the backside of the goodie bag topper for your child to sign their name.

How to Make Leprechaun Loot Bags
- Printer paper (cardstock is best)
- Paper trimmer or scissors
- 4.5 – 4.75 inch wide snack size sandwich bags (I found some at Walmart
- Chocolate Gold Coins (I put 10 coins in each bag)

Printout as many of the toppers as you need.
I used a paper trimmer to trim the toppers. Paper trimmers will give the best cut, but scissors would also work if you don't have a paper trimmer.
Fold the printables in half. If you have super heavy card stock, you may want to use a scoring blade to score them in the center. Scoring may not be necessary but it does make a much cleaner fold.
Fill the snack bags with treats and attach the toppers to the bags with two staples per topper.
The topper is shown here on a goodie bag filled with chocolate gold coins:
