I am so lucky this year to be a home room mom, twice! Last week we had Elli’s Kindergarten class party. Lots of moms and grandmas showed up to help and enjoy the party with their little ones. Because I was so focused on that, I kinda neglected Sammi’s class. Her teacher didn’t want a party, just treat bags. So, just in time, I got a letter sent home inviting parents to send in candy and come help fill bags if they wanted. All that was left was to get the treat bags. Enter my talented mom!
Color Heals Me is a new blog my mom just started to journal her adventures in art and art journaling. She is the doodle master! The girls and I have had so much fun learning to doodle with her. She recently created a Halloween doodle free printable. We used her doodle printable to decorate the treat bags for Sammi’s class.
Once the paint was dry, I added the round stickers to the bags. I’ve had my labels for a few years (I bought a huge stack) and found they didn’t stick to the paper bag as well as I’d have liked. I wish I would have covered them with packing tape to make sure they stayed put. Sammi wrote the names of all her classmates on the bags. She loved the idea of each person knowing which bag was there and not fighting over which they thought looked the fullest. I’m so glad she’s thinking of these things and planning solutions for them.
After the bags were filled, we used the rectangle labels to close them up. Turns out it’s okay they don’t stick that well, because Sammi’s teacher had more candy to add. This was a fun project to do with the girls and made for a quick but darling treat bag for the kids in Sammi’s class.
