The change bag is a very versatile clown prop. It is used to make a small item disappear, or to change one small item into another. One of its’ strengths is that the bag can be pulled inside-out to ‘prove’ that it’s empty—when it’s not, of course. It can be used as a straight magic trick, but it lends itself to clown magic as well. For example, many years ago at Clown Camp one of the skits that the students performed a short act trying to demonstrate one of the magic tricks that they ‘learned’—turning a silk into a mouse. They put a colored silk into the change bag, and pulled out—something else (I forget what, but it could have been a variety of things—a flag, a silk scarf with a message, a squeaky duck, etc.), and so they try (and fail) again—and on the third try, they pull out a ‘green mouse’—a little rubber frog.
In the same way, there are hundreds of other possible things that you can pull out of a change bag. It’s very versatile and has a huge bang for the buck.
