How to make fiesta treat bags


  1. With younger children: Use glue sticks instead of white glue with water. Cut the tissue paper into pieces or shapes ( squares, triangles, circles).  This will make it easier for the little ones to decorate their own bag.

  1. If this will be craft activity for your party, pre-cut the tissue paper strips, or paper shapes and accents so that the fiesta treat bags are easy and quick to assemble.
