Halloween Treat Bags Activity
Recently I had a change to try this fun stencils from Stencil Revolution and I knew I wanted to get my son involved as well.
He absolutely loves to paint and I knew this would be right up his alley!
Before I let my 3 year old go wild with the stencil, I taped the stencil down well with blue painters tape.
NOTE: Tape well along all sides so that if the paint strays a bit it doesn’t get on the tote!
You can do a single color for this activity, but we had a lot of fun doing a layered sunset effect for our DIY Halloween treat bag!
Yellow for the moon, then orange, fuchsia, and purple.
NOTE: Add a thick piece of cardboard to the inside of the bag to keep the paint from soaking through to the other side and possibly onto your table.
You can see that the paint on the bats got a little crazy, but I really did just let my 3 year old do this alone! As you can see, it turned out really well and I think those bats are precious!
He was so pleased with the finished results!
Finishing the Halloween Treat Bag
We let our paint dry for about 15 minutes before removing the tape and stencil – however, this drying time might be longer depending on how much paint was added to the canvas.
You could add “TRICK OR TREAT” or “HAPPY HALLOWEEN” with paint pen after the main stencil is finished. We chose to leave ours with just the stencil for now.
I would be careful about adding your child’s name on the bag though!
