Mommy & Me Mondays: Painted Apple Lunch Bags

It's hard to believe that the start of another school year is just around the corner.  We're excited to team up with our friend Ashley at Frugal Coupon Living for a Back to School Bash of ideas.  Over the coming weeks Ashley will be featuring some of Simply Sprout's ideas for getting in school spirit, and not breaking the bank, before the first bell rings.


Today we are showing you an easy craft to do with your kiddos in preparation for the lunch making assembly line that takes place in a lot of households.  Have your crafty kids make a bunch, let them dry, and then store them in the drawer along with your lunch containers and such.
 
All you’ll need is:

Paper lunch sacks
Washable paint (we used red, green, and white)
Apple sliced in half
Cork
Scraps of ribbon
Hole puncher
Black marker
Paper plates

Lay out a couple of paper plates for your kids with some paint on each of them.  Show them how the apple can double as a stamp.  Have them cover the cut side of apple with paint and stamp their bags.  They can use the cork to make polka dots.  Once they’re dry you can use the black marker to finish off your design.  To make your kids' lunch one of a kind add some ribbon scraps to the top.  

This would also be a great way to decorate a teacher bag of treats for the first day!  Enjoy these last couple weeks of lazy summer days!
