Elementary and Preteen Craft: Especially for Me Gift Bags

Kids will love making these personalized “Especially For Me” gift bags to use as they collect tasty goodies this Christmas.

Age Level: 6 to 12

For each child, you’ll need:

  • a paper 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

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.
