How much fun is that!
Kudos to Trader Joe’s for giving us a creative brown bag idea! The next time you shop in Trader Joe’s you will notice that right on their brown bags are child-friendly directions for making cheerful decorations.
Using their guidance you will be able to make festive chains and novelty gift tags to use all winter long. You can even cut apart the bags and use them as homemade wrapping paper. If you have only one or two bags, you can make templates out of the patterns and trace them either on brightly colored paper or on paper that your children can color brightly.
Even though the holidays are over, you now have another resource for enjoying creativity and the “gift of giving” all winter long. Share this idea with your parents. In addition, refer them to December! The Art & Science of Giving on Wednesday Evening Wine for even more creative ideas.
