Jelly Bean Bag!

You’ll need:

One large clear plastic garbage bag

20-30 small colorful balloons (blow them up and tie them off when they are about 5 inches in diameter)

Leggings

Black sharpie.

Scissors

 

Cut a hole in your garbage bag for your head and two holes for your arms.

Lay the bag out flat and draw a table in sharpie on the bag for the ingredients. Get creative with this, adding your own personality to the ingredients (Ex: Awesomeness — 15% of daily value, Sugar’n’Spice —————– 50% daily value)

Pull the bag over your head and tuck the bottom into your leggings. Fill the bag with your balloons. Voila! You are a bag of jelly beans! Extra points if you carry some actual jellybeans with you to hand out to all of your admirers!
