In honour of Halloween arriving in a few weeks, I thought this simple idea to create your child’s very own treat bag is a practical alternative to using a plain old pillow case…which is what I used as a kid. Ellen from Alphamom says you can buy a simple canvas tote bag at most craft stores or make one like she did from muslin.
Ellen created the ghost and jack o’ lantern template which she then traced onto the cardboard of a recycled cereal box and cut out the shapes. Kids can definitely get involved with this project and do the painting.
