Snowman Gift Bag

Supplies:
  • White paper bag

Directions: Fold down a small portion of top of bag. Cut out a hat, nose, buttons, and mouth (my little helper did not want her snowman to have a mouth) from construction paper and glue on to paper bag to create a snowman (younger children may need pieces pre-cut out). Add googly eyes for eyes. Perfect bag to send home a special gift for parents!
