Kid’s Craft: Valentine’s Day Lunch Bags

Last weekend, my daughter asked me to do a craft. She grabbed the brown paper lunch bags out of the kitchen drawer and said, “let’s make something out of these!” We were in a Valentine’s Day type of mood, so I thought we’d decorate them and make Valentine’s Day lunch bags to take to school.

She’s six and I wanted her to get creative any way she knew how, so I went to the craft room and came out with a bunch of materials we could use to decorate our bags. I put out:

  • Crayons and Markers
  • Scissors
  • Glue Sticks
  • Craft Punches
  • Scrap Paper
  • Googly Eyes

The two of us went to town and made five bags. One lunch bag for Monday through Friday.

Here is a quick one minute YouTube video of my process:

Here are the two that I made using some scrap paper and glue a Fiskars hexagon craft punch, heart craft punch, and circle punches.

I have to say it was a lot of fun sitting down with her and decorating these lunch bags.  It’s such a simple kid’s craft activity that doubles as family fun. Here are two that my six-year-old daughter made. I thought her Mickey Mouse was quite good! That bag, by the way, ended up turning into a puppet that she used to entertain her ten-month-old sister!

Here are some other fun Valentine’s Day craft ideas:
