Sometimes the simplest ideas can be so fun! 

My son turns 3 next week, and per tradition we need to give little favors to all the kids in his preschool class – that is 25 kids!

I am big proponent of non-candy favors so we decided on these fun colorful chalk.

Now how to wrap them up?

So I came up with these easy to personalize chalkboard favor bags! They can be personalized and re-used!

So we headed to Walmart and loaded them up!

Supplies needed for the chalkboard favor and treat bags –

How to make these DIY favor and treat bags –

Step 1 – Lay out your bags on a cardboard surface and tape them to create a pattern to paint using the masking tape.

The bags are also taped to the cardboard to keep them from moving.

Step 2 – Paint the first layer of chalkboard paint.

The first layer will look splotchy but don’t worry let it dry.

Step 3 – Paint the 2nd layer of chalkboard paint.

While the paint is still wet, slowly and carefully peel off the masking tapes.

Make sure not to move the bags too much or touch the paint. It is important to peel off the tape while the paint is still wet or the tape will lift off the paint with it when dry – ask me how I know! 

Step 4 – Once it is dry, just use chalk or chalkboard marker to write your message.

It can be treated like a regular chalkboard – erased and re-used.

It is so easy to make these chalkboard favor and treat bags!
