We’ve thrown a Halloween party with kids from 20 months to 8 years old. The one activity that they ALL loved? Making Halloween Trick or Treat Bags!
You don’t need to have a party for this craft, though. You can easukt do it at home after a single trip to the craft store or order supplies online using the links below.
DIY Halloween Trick or Treat Bags
You will need:
First wash the bags. This gets rid of… I don’t know. Canvas residue? Anyhow, the glue directions said to wash the fabric first, so do it.
I cut jack-o-lantern faces out of felt, and the kids glued on the faces, sequins, and small jewels.
I had the kids using real glue, but I’d recommend glue dots instead (they are like stickers, but they work like glue). That way, you don’t have to worry about drying time.
We also used fabric paint to decorate the bags, but markers would work just as well.
This is definitely a messy craft, especially if you use fabric paint or Sharpies, so make sure the kids are wearing old clothes!
Everyone loved their new Halloween Trick or Treat Bags. Making them yourself makes them even more special plus they hold loads of candy. Win/Win/Win!
