Reindeer Snack/Gift Bags

I actually made these last year and never used them so when Lexi got the snack basket last week for her preschool class I was all set...and so excited that I didn't have to store them for another year! They are a fun little way to spruce up plain snacks (or put really great snacks in them and be the *best* snack mom). I just added some popcorn and off they went.

Using a brown paper lunch bag, round off the corners to make a face. Use the paper you just cut off to fashion ears. Fold the face over and glue the ears in the fold. Cut out a nose and antlers and let your child glue them on (mine lives for "glue projects"). Draw on some eyes. Fill with anything. You are now the coolest mom in preschool :)

Go over to Rocks in My Dryer for more Works For Me Wednesday ideas. You make find something that may change your life! Or at least make it much easier.


  1. so cute! I've also seen them where you trace the child's hand for the antlers.

  2. About the Wilton Chocolate Melter you asked about, it is definently easier than melting in the microwave. You have to be very careful about how high and how long you melt the chocolate, but with the melter you simply throw in and walk away... it is done in just a few mins and perfect EVERY time :)

  3. That is so cute and easy...just right for me! We made reindeer cookies from store bought dough last week. It was so easy and fun (photo and recipe on blog)! Have a wonderful Christmas!
