Handy Bags

Since I was talking about having bags for a variety of purposes, I thought I'd show the bags the kids and I "made" for taking to Awana and storing everything in during the week.

I found canvas bags at the dollar store and got the kids to "personalize" each bag with their own hand print in acrylic paint. Here is a picture of Elijah ironing his bag (with my vintage TOY iron) after being inspired by my ironing the bags.

Here's another picture of Desiree and Elijah modelling the bags before using them to hunt for Easter eggs in the backyard. (Note: they picked out the sweaters themselves because they thought the stripes on the sweaters looked liked the stripes on decorated Easter eggs.)

These bags are great for organizing the Cubbies and Sparks books, Desiree's Bible and Awana bucks. Elijah even uses his bag to bring along his stuffed elephant which he named Ernie elephant after the elephant in his Cubbies book (and I suppose after daddy too!).
