My son's preschool class will be having a Valentine's party and, over the weekend, we completed a quick, inexpensive Valentine craft for the kiddos. We made personalized gift bags for everyone with muslin bags, an ink stamp, and red marker. I got these 4x6 bags at Amazon (25 for $5).
I figured there will be plenty of sweets (I'm bringing cookies) at the party, so we filled the bags with goodies instead- bubbles, kazoo, and foam heart sticker.
We got a little off track while stamping the bags . . .
But that's part of the fun, right?! The ink washed right off with soap and water.
I used a red sharpie to write each child's name. (I put a piece of paper in the bag so the ink wouldn't bleed through while I was writing). Then stuffed each bag.
I hope they like them!
Each child is supposed to decorate a shoebox to collect their Valentines in. I wrapped James' box with red polka dot paper left over from Christmas (from The Container Store).
To personalize the box, I spray painted mini chip board letter and James stuck them on. He also added the red heart stickers.
I think we're ready for the party!
