Elementary and Preteen Craft: Especially for Me Gift Bags
First 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. Then 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 bags to collect goodies or as holders for their classroom materials.
