I love this idea!I think I'll make it for the grandkids when I visit them in May. Of courseI would make it purple and orange. Miss O informs me each time I visit that purple is her favorite color. She was invited to a birthday party a couple weeks ago but had to stay home because she had a bad cold. The treat bag that the mom made for her was all purple items. She gave it to Karen when she went by to drop Olivia's gift off to the little girl.
