Sometimes I don't make anything but a mess.

We, like lots of people, have 8973209842 plastic bags kicking around. We reuse them, but my son is always having trouble remembering which cabinet they're in. We have lots of Mexican stuff in our kitchen, so I made this from some linen/cotton curtains I had:



The bags go in the top...



and come out where? His mouth, of course!



It's decorated with standard craft acrylic and some red glitter fabric paint. I may paint more on it; this is where I stopped yesterday when the colors started to swirl before my tired eyes. I do wish I'd made it a bit bigger, 'cos I dunno how many bags I'll be able to cram in this one. I was limited by the size of the paper I had to make the pattern (typing paper).  Undecided

Hope you all like! My son thinks it's so funny.

The sugar skull is puking up Target bags... I agree with your son. It's hilarious, and a great way to encourage recycling.
