Adult Supervision Needed


How to Make

  1. If you want to remove the label/text from the front of the bag, pour a little nail varnish remover onto a cotton pad and simply rub it off.
  2. Add some clear hair gel to the bag. Enough so that a thin layer of gel covers the inside of the bag.
  3. Pop out some letters from the red sheet of letters, making sure you also remove any inner part of the letter. Then add them to the bag.
  4. Repeat step 3 with other coloured letters until you have enough letters in your bag to spell multiple words.
  5. Do up the zip on the bag.
  6. Add white tape to the edges of the bag.

Top Tip

Make sure you add at least one of every letter of the alphabet as well as extra vowels.
