Bag of Hugs
This was not library related, but I made this for a friend at church whose mother passed away. We both help with our Young Women youth group, so I wanted to do some kind of craft that involved the girls. Everything I found online wasn't age-appropriate for our teenage girls, and I wanted to do something a little more personal than just signing a card. So, I came up with this Bag of Hugs.
I cut out several construction paper rectangles, and let the girls (and anyone else) write a nice note, poem, scripture, or whatever on it and put it in the bag. Some girls did more than one. That way she could read them all at once or just pull one out when she felt like it.
I just cut them out and glued them onto a regular paper bag.
