Streamer Munchkin

Materials

  1. Large paper bag
  2. White glue
  3. Ribbons, yarn, colored string
  4. Crayons
  5. Colored paper

Directions

Place bag over your child's head and mark where his eyes and armholes are located with crayons. Remove the bag and cut out the holes for eyes and arms. Place the bag over the back of a chair to make decorating easy. Cut ribbons, yarn, paper, ribbons, and string into assorted lengths, not to exceed the child's height. Cover the front, back, and sides. When the glue is dry, place bag over child's head and lead him in front of a mirror so he can see and admire the results.
