Make your own goody bag this Autumn

Make your very own waterproof goody bag to carry all of your discoveries that you find on autumn walks. Why not include some leaves in the layers of your bag and try to find the same shapes on your walk.

 

 

This goody bag is also a great idea for Halloween! Are you going trick or treating this year? Why not make your very own goody bag to carry all of your treats, you could even make one to match your costume.

You will need:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Cling Film

Cut a length of cling film roughly 60cm long.

Step 2

 

Sprinkle the collage materials onto the cling film, don’t put everything in at once as you will be creating layers to make your bag strong enough to hold lots of treats.

Step 3

 

 

Cut another piece of cling film and place over the top of your previous piece, this should hold all the decorations in place.

 

 

Step 4

 

 

Repeat steps 2 and 3 another 4 times. You should end up with 6 layers of cling film.

Step 5

 

 

Once you have added all the decorations you want to your bag. Fold over the edges to create a neat seam and keep all the decorations in place.

 

 

Step 6

 

 

Fold the whole thing in half like a book, then cellotape along the side and along the bottom. You will need to fold the cellotape over the two sides of the bag. Put your hand inside the bag to check for any holes.

Step 7

 

 

Create a handle by cutting 30cm of cling film. Along one edge place some decoration, fold over approx. 3cm.  Add some more decorations along the fold and fold again, repeat this until you have run out of cling film. This should then be strong enough to form a handle.

 

 

Step 8

 

 

Cellotape the two ends of the handle to the inside of the bag, make sure it is secure so that you don't loose all of your goodies.

Your bag is now finished and ready to hold all your amazing goodies, whether it be leaves and conkers or yummy surprises from Halloween.

The live online creative class

The live online creative class is not only fun, relaxed and educational it has also given my girls something to look forward to weekly and a masterpiece or three to show and be proud of afterward. Both my girls have taken the techniques used from the classes to create more art through out the week. I would highly recommend the Creation Station live online classes. *****

We find Creation station brilliant

We find Creation station brilliant! A wide range of activities using all kinds of materials (all supplied to!) with a different theme each week. Very entertaining for my 6 year old to let their creative side shine! The host is very friendly and always patient with the children. The sessions usually last for around 12 weeks so great value for an after school club! My little one always looks forward to it! We are currently attending online creation station during lockdown and it’s fantastic! All Materials supplied to our door with super easy instructions to follow (all organised by our fantastic host Jude) It’s kept our routine which is very important for little people. We love it!!

I order these letters quite regularly…good price, speedy delivery.

I order these letters quite regularly but noticed they had gone up in price from last time, so I looked directly at your site. I was surprised to see that to purchase directly from you was cheaper, so that it what I did. The speed of delivery was excellent and I will always come straight to you in future for my craft supplies.
