Parents of toddlers and preschoolers know that you have to have a LOT of fun activities in your arsenal to keep those little bodies occupied. Here’s a project I love from a blog I LOVE: Gift Bag Robots from Filth Wizardry. If you have young kids and have time to read only one blog, it should be Filth Wizardry. I’ll miss you, though! :) [click here for full project info]

You can find oversize metallic giftbags at the dollar store, along with colorful round stickers and labels. This should keep your kids busy for a little while! This would be a super-fun birthday activity for a robot-themed party. I can even see goodie bags made with teeny metallic bags and decorated in this manner.

Project Estimate:

  • Metallic gift bag, $1
  • Stickers and labels, $1 and up or on hand

Total: $1 and up
