This is a super simple little project you can do with the kiddos for the holidays. You can make little Rudolph treat bags in just minutes with a few supplies. There are so many variations on these little baggies to accommodate lunches, treats, toys… I wanted to make mine to hold popcorn for my girls.
We like to take the kids to look at Christmas lights as often as possible during the holidays and I usually make a treat of popcorn and hot chocolate to go with our little light tour. These would also be so fun for family movie night or just curling up with some Christmas themed books.
Mine is an open top bag and it was a lunchbag size. You can just as easily make this a closed top or use smaller bags and these would be very cute for a class party.
If you have children coming for Christmas dinner, you might pop some coloring pages and Crayons inside or little toys or treats to keep them busy during dinnertime. I think these would be so adorable sitting as a place card holder on each setting for the kids.
To make Rudolph you can just use what you have on hand. I used a plain paper lunch bag and glued on little googley eyes. I also hot glued on a little red nose- I happened to have some scrapbook paper in a glittery red- maybe you have construction paper or wrapping paper that would work? Next I traced each of the children’s hands on brown construction paper and cut it out to make antlers. Those were hot glued to the back of the bag.
Oh and I didn’t need the entire bag filled with popcorn so I did trim about 1/3-1/2 of the bag away before starting. If you don’t want the open top the process is the same but just fold over the top of the bag accordion style instead. The last step is just to add a little something else to the bottom- I tied a bow with ribbon I had on hand and glued that on for his collar. And done!
Super fast and easy. If you don’t have the googley eyes I mentioned above it would be just as easy to cut construction paper oval eyes out in white and black paper. A little glue and you are ready to go!
And PS: Does anyone else add candy to popcorn? M&Ms are my favorite to sprinkle in with the salty popcorn but gummy candy or sour candy is yummy too!
