WFMW- Some back to school fun... now!

I am always trying to come up with fun things to do to keep the kidlets out of the whiney zone! (We live in Ohio and you never know what the weather is going to be like! ) This is a great kids craft that may even buy you ten minutes to unload the dishwasher or use the potty. :) Better yet, it has a purpose. You can use this craft during school days!

I took out our pack of brown paper bags and looked them over. I eyed the markers, crayons, stamps and stickers in the corner. I then let my kids go at it. Yep, we decorated our lunch bags. They were free to do as many as they liked and I even jumped in on the action! They could use any craft extra we had laying around our house. If we had it here, they could decorate a bag with it!

Not only did they have a great time, my son will get a kick out of it all year long when we go on field trips that require a packed lunch :) He will have a "custom made" bag.

Easy, cheap and creative.... and that works for me!

That is such a cute idea!! I'm in OH too so I can always use things to keep the kiddo occupied when the weather goes bad!
