Last month my daughter turned 9. Instead of having a big party, she requested that she take 2 friends to Get Air and then out for ice cream. Since she decided on a smaller (and much cheaper!) party, I wanted to do something special for Harper and her friends so I made them tote bags.
I used my favorite basic tote tutorial for the bags, but I sized the measurements down by about 20% to make it more 9-year-old sized.
Filling the bags was a blast. They had sunglasses, sidewalk chalk, notebooks, stickers, pens, glow sticks, bracelets, and gum. I went a little crazy at Target.
I didn't tell Harper about the bags ahead of time and the girls all had fun with them.
