Gift Bags

Posted on: May 25, 2009

(Sometimes you just want to spruce up that gift bag, and sometimes you need an activity for a party.  I first did these with elementary school children at a Halloween party with all kinds of art supplies.  Then we did them at Sean’s birthday party with two three-year-olds and a two-year-old.  Every child I have done this with has enjoyed it.)

Things you need:

  • Plain gift bags (any color)
  • Crayons, markers, stickers, glitter, glue, what ever you want to decorate with

Give a bag to the child.  Let the child decorate it.  (Totally easy and potentially mess free.)

Can you figure out who did what?

Thanks for this. We have a third birthday party coming up next weekend, and we need to get some gift bags for the guests to take home.

I like you use of the word ‘potential’!

I hope it works out. 🙂 And I have learned that little kids can make a mess with anything.
