DIY Valentine Craft Bags With Stickers
Better choices available for valentine distribution
Used for kindergarten classroom valentine distribution. Although the colors are pretty, the bags are a bit thin - two of 19 we used broke during decorating and another one broke while being filled. Also, the description says you can use crayons, colored pencils or washable markers, but none of those will work on this type of glossy surface, so stickers or permanent markers are your only choices. The stickers provided (12 sheets, ~4 each of 3 designs) are very attractive and good quality, but since we were working in stations I had to spend time cutting the sheets (3 designs) into pieces so that each child got a few from each of the designs. The floppy string handles are hard for young hands to manage. Pretty colors. Overall I was disappointed -- this wasn't a good fit for our purpose.
