Goodie Bag-First Day

Are there any teachers who give a goodie bag for the first day of school? I'm looking for some creative ideas to include in the bags. It's a cello bag with the following on it. In the past I've included
  • erasers
  • post-it-notes
  • homework pass
  • skittles

There is usually one odd item in one bag and that's who gets to start the year out as helper.
