Level: 6 to 12
Materials: For each child, you'll need a paper
gift bag, a 9-inch paper plate, and one piece of card stock cut 1/4
inch shorter in width than the width of the gift bag and
approximately 2 inches longer than the height of the bag. You'll
also need construction paper, markers, craft glue, and tape.
Time: About 30 minutes
Kids will love these personalized gift bags as they collect
goodies this Christmas.
Have kids each use markers and construction paper to create a
face that resembles them on a paper plate. While kids create their
faces, slip the piece of card stock into the gift bag. Fold the
card stock at the point where it extends over the outside of the
bag. Once kids complete their paper plate face, help them glue or
tape the back of the plate to the flap of the card stock.
Kids can use their gift bags to collect goodies or as holders
for their classroom materials.
