GIFT BAGS FOR FATHER’S DAY

Why make a gift bag? These gift bags for Father’s Day are a fabulous way for kids to enjoy doing an art project while adding to the gift they are giving!

This homemade Father’s Day gift can be reused for many different purposes. Dad could use it to store stationary such as pens and pencils at his desk. This paper bag shirt could also be flattened, set in a frame, and displayed in a place of honour for everyone to see.
