Things to Make – Paper Bag Quilt


finish

Another recycling bin project, I love these . . . I cut a few large paper grocery bags into squares. And then outlined the squares with a cross-stich pattern using a marker. Each kid received two squares (but T gave me one of his). And I put oil pastels, markers, and watercolor crayons/with paintbrushes (love these) on the table to create with. When everyone finished arting, I stapled the squares together. Just one staple on each side, to give it a loose, free-flowing look. Easy peasy. I think this would be a fun project for a party or a large playgroup, as it allows the kids to work separately and still make something unified. makePost by Darcy : No Monsters in My Bed

    I LOVE this! I have a huge stack of paper bags just waiting to be turned into a quilt and now that it is summer there will be lots of time for “quilting” :)

    There you go … another great idea on how to make my kids busy + i bet they will enjoy writing and painting on the paper rather than on my walls :)
