Moms in my circles are busy figuring out what to make or get for the little one’s Valentine’s class party. Well, here is a little idea for where you are going to put that perfect heart-ed item you will be giving out. My son’s classroom is crazy about cookies! To mark the month of love, I will bake for them a batch of their favorite chocolate chip cookies, and I have this Easy Valentine’s Day Paper Bag DIY to go with the cookies.
I promise it is a quick and simple craft. You can involve the kids, and I think you will come back to this project for many more celebrations! Let’s see if you agree.
I found the perfect paper bags to put in 4 cookies per child. I want to personalizing this bags a bit more. So, I thought I could doctor it up in a way that also allows for the kids to practice their letters and writing along the way.
The materials you need are:
- Themed paper bags – size will go according to what you are looking to put in them
- Chalk board labels – number of them to match your bags
- dab glue on the back of your chalk board labels
- place on to front face of bag
- leave to dry, once dry you are ready to stuff them!
I told you it was easy!!
To mark the bags, you can use chalk, a white crayon or pencil to write your message on the label. I decided on a white pencil this time. I have enlisted the kids so they can write their own messages for their friends. You can also invite the kids to embellish further the bag or label with stickers or whatever bling you love using.
Tip: An alternative to using chalk paper is finding chalk labels. That will allow the bag and label to mold better to any and all items you might consider putting in the bag.
After making these bags, I love them for basically any occasion where goodie-bags are called for! They are really quick to put together and you can pick the bags to match every single theme you can envision. The icing on the cake is that you can personalize the labels as much as you want. For a more homogeneous look, you can also print the text you want for the labels, if you don’t have time to write them out.
Do you think you will be making your own bags for the love trinkets or treats you have for your kids’ classmates?
