Lunch is always more fun when you turn it into a picnic! This week’s project makes picnics even more fun by turning lunch prep into an art project. And, with back-to-school season quickly approaching, this craft doesn’t have to be limited to picnics; kids can decorate a whole stack of brown bags and have them ready for school lunches!
- brown paper bags
- a hole puncher
- Lay your paper bag flat and decorate it any way you wish with markers. You can doodle scenery or even make fun patterns. This is a great activity for children of all ages! Make an assembly line and doodle a whole bunch of bags. You can save them for later or invite a group of friends to join in on a picnic lunch!
- Once your doodles are complete, punch two holes in the top of the bag (one on each side of the opening) in one of two ways: either by folding it over once first or punching the holes in the top just as it is.
- Pack a lunch inside the bag, and then tie it closed with some yarn.
Enjoy your lunch!
