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
- 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:
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!
