I had a Halloween party last week with kids from 20 months to 8 years old. The one activity that they ALL loved? Making trick-or-treat bags! You don’t need to have a party for this craft, though – you can do it at home after a single trip to the craft store.
You will need:
- Orange Non-woven bags
- Black felt (about 33 cents a piece)
- Glue or glue dots
- Fabric paint or markers (regular Sharpies work just as well as fancy fabric markers)
- Decorations: jewels, glitter, ribbon, etc.
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!
