Now that you have made your own unique Halloween costume
, it is time to think about making a unique trick or treat bag
to go with that costume. When I was a kid, we used pillowcases large enough to hit up the whole town for all the goodies we could possibly eat. But those were also the days that you could go trick or treating without a parent tied to your every move and apples were safe to eat too.
The Dollar Store
has cheap orange gift bags
, all kinds of stickers, glitter
, and different colors of construction paper. For complete instructions on this idea, check out eHow.com
. You can decorate your goodie bag anyway you wish.
Craft stores have canvas tote bags
and tempera paints, perfect for making this personalized trick or treat bag
that will last your child for years. Your child will have an hour or more of fun helping you decorate the bag to their liking. They can paint
their name on the bag, or the desired design of their choice.
If you have fabric material leftover from making your Halloween costume, then let your imagination flow and sew a pumpkin trick or treat bag
. You will have a one of a kind bag that will hold all the candy your little heart (or your toddler's little heart) desires.
