Today I’m sharing these easy and adorable Finger Paint People Goodie Bags.
This craft is so easy for children of all ages to make and is perfect for making a simple and cheap hand made gift. You can adapt these goodie bags for any occasion and really make them your own.
I think I may have a bit of a thing about hand made gift bags! I used to love making gifts as a child and remember even going to a ‘present making club’ at school!
These bags are just so easy to make and such a simple way to personalise a gift. Even if the contents are fairly small or inexpensive, putting them in handmade gift bag makes them feel like a unique gift.
All ages will enjoy this activity. Little ones can help with the finger painting, while older kids will enjoy getting creative with their ‘finger paint people.’ Of course you totally have permission to make these as a grown up too! 😉
You only need a few simple things to get started, then you can go wild with your finger paint people! I have made an Easter version of these bags too, with hand made bags. Feel free to make the bags yourself, or use brown paper lunch bags, as in this tutorial.

Finger Paint People Goodie Bags
You will need:
Choose a paint colour and finger paint over the bag. Leave a little space. Repeat with a range of colours. Allow to dry then repeat on the other side of the bag.
Use your felt pens to make the finger paints into little people! They can be dancing, walking, climbing – whatever you fancy! For Easter you can make them into cute little Easter egg people!
Fill your bag with treats or gifts.
That’s it! You’ve made your easy finger paint people goodie bag!
