This is the perfect activity to get kids in the mood for Halloween.
These treat or even party bags are extremely simply to make. Kids can follow the step by step guide below or use the ideas to create their own designs.
Step 1: For this particular treat bag you will need to work with a black paper bag. Take your bag and lay it flat on some newspaper.
Step 2: Take some orange foam or card (we used sparkly card) and cut out 3 pumpkin shapes.
Step 3: Take some white foam or card (we used sparkly white card). Cut out the shape of a couple of ghost (you can draw this with a pencil first). You will also need to cut out the shape of a grave stone and a circle for the moon.
Step 4: Arrange your shapes to create a scene like that of the one above. Only when you are happy with it use glue dots to stick it in place.
Step 5: take some large googly eyes and stick them in place on your middle size pumpkin.
Step 6: With a permanent black marker start adding some detail to your ghost and add a cross to your headstone.
Step 7: Use the black marker to add the eyes to your remaining 2 pumpkins, not forgetting to give them all a mouth each.
Step 8: Cut some cloud shapes from a piece of white foam. Stick these to your bag so that they slightly overlap and cover the bottom of your moon. Use sticky tabs as to create a slightly 3D effect.
Step 9: Use the black maker to add detail to your foam clouds like the flying bats we’ve added to ours.
Step 10: Take some black sparkly gem boarder and cut into two strips.
Step 11: Add one of the boarder strips along the top of your treat bag and the other along the bottom.
Then your done… Just fill with treats for trick or treaters.
The very cool thing about this treat bag is the wiggly eyes! They look very spooky as they jiggly about in all directions.
