Duct Tape Universe Bag

Staple two 8 by 10 pieces of paper together, leaving the top open ( like a purse.) Frame your “purse” with duct-tape. We found duct tape that looked like planets in Target. Ask the child to write” Solar System Bag” in the middle and staple two pipe cleaners for handles to the top.
