This is a simple and fun craft for children to join in with. If you are using child safe glue it will probably take a while to stick, so you might want to do that bit for them with something stronger. Otherwise your kids can have hours of rainy day fun making these cute bags.

Supplies:

  • 1 deep paper plate or bowl
  • glue
  • ribbon and embellishments of your choice
  • scissors
  • paints, crayons, or felt tips to colour with
  • hole punch

Steps:

  1. Cut your plate in half.
  2. Straighten out any curvature at the edges to make sticking easier.
  3. Apply glue and stick the 2 halves together.

Very cute! I saw a version of this with staples, but this version is much safer. Lucky little girl who gets this one!
