We decorated 342 bags!

About our project: We decided to work with a local grocery store, and they were very accommodating to our request. One of our 5 sites worked with poster paint and I think those bags turned out the best. Be sure to remind teachers and students that the bag still needs to be functional after decorating. Some forgot how the bags worked and glued paper over the bottom flap rendering the bag useless for groceries. NO GLITTER. We also spent too much time working on plans and not enough decorating.
