Spray with acrylic sealer and allow to dry. Decorate with foam hearts,stickers, pictures from magazines, whatever appeals to you for the holiday look.

Fill pot 1/3 full with shredded paper (I shredded construction paper) and then add treat bag. If you don't want to give goodies, you could fill with a plant or fill treat bag with potting soil and give a package of seeds. My son who is doing this in the picture is 3. I think this craft would be suitable for 5 and up.
