1-2-3 Come Make Some Treat Bags With Me!
If you're looking for a quick and easy treat bag to make to hold some end-of-the year goodies, then I think you'll like these simple and inexpensive owl lunch bags.
If you've already got that covered, they are sweet for the beginning of the school year as well. Simply change the saying to: "Owl" bet we have the best year yet or We're going to gain lots of knOWLedge in kindergarten or whatever grade you're teaching.
If you're looking for an owl puppet, simply glue everything on the bag upside down. Students insert their hand inside the bag.
Here’s How To Make The Owl Treat Bags
Make templates of the pieces using an old file folder.
Trace the template onto one sheet of construction paper and then cut as many as you can.
I used daisy and circle paper punches. A flower petal punch also looks cool for the center of the eyes.
Glue the 2 triangles together.
Glue the 3 piece eyes together.
I added a bit of pizzazz to the black pupil using a dot of white out. It is quick drying and adds “life” to eyes.
Glue the set of triangles to the top-front of a brown paper lunch bag.
Glue the eyes a tad under the base of the triangle.
Fold the beak and glue it to the base of the triangle on top of a section of the eyes. (See photo.)
You can leave the bag plain and dispense with the “Owl miss you” breast piece. Simply write your students’ names on the bag or the saying: “Owl miss you! I hope your summer’s a real hoot.”
If you want to add that bit of flair, run off the breast note and glue it on the middle of the bag.
Open up the bags, line them up and tuck in candy, a book, bookmarks etc. in an assembly line fashion.
If you don’t want students peeking, staple the top shut.
