I was asked to help with some activity bags at our church. Instead of going with straight up painted canvas, I opted for something I could have little more fun with. I started with small tote bags in bright colors from Hobby Lobby.
Since the bags are to help keep little ones occupied during services when we don't have Children's Church, I thought the size would be prefect for preschoolers. They were all beautiful colors, but why not add a little something to make them unique?
This was my first attempt and Jack claimed it immediately.
Then, after the mushrooms I realized I may prefer the simpler styles. I love working with felt and I may have gotten a bit carried away ...
I added coloring books, crayons, stickers and stencils to complete a dozen 'Little Saints Sermon Kits'. The twins wanted a version of their very own of course.
How precious are the little lambs? I added a few extra details so they would have dimension like Jack's aquarium bag. As a happy coincidence, these little bags are the perfect size for carrying their bibles in addition to a few 'tools' to keep little ones nice a quiet during a sermon.
Which design is your favorite?
