Deanna DeWyze
Messiah Lutheran Preschool
Wauconda, IL USA

We decorated 250 bags!

About our project: The children each had a fun time creating a colorful design. Each age-level classes used a different technique appropriate for them: stamp-pads with paint, free-hand drawing with markers, explorative painting using recycled items, etc. They were really unique and individual works of art. I heard from a Jewel Food Store (our sponsor)clerk that patrons really liked seeing and receiving the bags. Great! A hands-on lesson and visual reminder for all to re-use!
