Fun and Colourful Loot Bags, K-Mart Crafts Part 5

Hey everyone. Another fun and easy craft made with suppliers that are cheap and easy to find in K-Mart. A great craft to involve the kids in creating their own loot bags for their Birthday Party. Fill them with toys or wrapped lollies as a take home treat.

NOTE: Please use wrapped lollies – I’m sure the paint is non toxic but better to be safe that sorry!

Here is what you will need to make the loot bags. The Pump Paint Set and Muslin Bags you will find in the craft department at K-Mart. You will find the Wooden Beads Kit in the kids craft section near the Toy Department. You will also need some scissors and tape. And just a warning – this craft involves paint so a good drop sheet and old clothes to protect your furniture and yourself will be helpful. Especially if there are kids involved!!
