DIY straw pool bag

On Friday I found these adorable straw bags in the dollar section of Target (they are $2.50). I thought they would be perfect pool bags for my 3 littlest girls this summer.

I have learned from experience that in our house it is easier if we know who's is who's.
I made a stencil by printing a large letter on regular paper and cutting it out with scissors. I taped the page to the front of the bag and covered the exposed areas with tape.
A quick spray of red rustolium and I removed the paper and tape.
Voila! I love a project that takes less than 20 minutes.
Three happy girls.

Are you ready for summer? Tomorrow is our last day of school!

Kayce- Not ready for summer yet! I have to sort out the clothes in my closet still.

The little bags are adorable.

My preschooler graduates next week, then we'll have some time together before the girls get out mid-June.

So cute...love this idea. Great for the girls, but maybe for a picnic on the 4th of July...everyone gets their own bag filled with supplies and their initial?
