Works for me Wednesday- Back to school craft that can actually be used!

I am always looking for ways to get my son prepared to go back to school. We love anything that gets him excited for the big day. Last year we did a craft that went over so big I thought I would share it again :)

I get out my brown paper bags, markers, crayons, stickers, glitter....whatever is in the craft area!

I then let my kiddos decorate the bags anyway they would like and as many as they would like.

They have a ball and when it comes time to pack a lunch they get to pick one of their very festive bags to carry it in. It makes them feel special and buys this mama at least 20 minutes to do something for know like pick up the house. :)

Very cute! I'm sure the kids enjoy carrying their artwork to school.

I posted some easy freebies & cheap deals at Target for my WFMW tip this week.
