Sometimes the packaging is better than the actual gift. Little ones can make personalized treat bags with artwork made from their fingerprints. Fill the bags with treats for their class, the grandparents, or caregivers.
Kids will love how creative the pictures on the bags are, and all you need is some homemade finger paint and markers. Our finger paint recipe is non-toxic and perfectly safe (and maybe a little delicious) if it makes its way into littles ones mouths.
We made a Christmas tree, Santa?s elves, penguins, and Christmas light bags that your friends and family will love to receive. Fill bags with your favorite holiday treat.
