There is a movement to reduce plastic bags in Australia. I’m all for this, and am trying to minimise plastic bags in our home also. If you’re looking for a crafty activity during the holidays, you can get the kids involved in this and they can create their own reusable bag for all kinds of things.
- Shopping bag
- Library bag
- Gift bag
- Mother’s Day
- Father’s Day
- Playgroup activity
- School fundraiser
Where to buy the bag
You can use various materials, depending on the age of the child and what look you are going for. Examples include:
- Fabric paint
- Fabric pens (Sharpie do a fabric pen version, and you find other brands also at Officeworks)
- Use paint brush, fingers, sponge or stencils
Tip: Insert a sheet paper inside the bag before painting to ensure paint doesn’t seep through to the back.
Hang to dry. Your fun, bright, personalised bag is ready to use!
