My grandchildren and I had fun with hats and bags recently – cloth tote bags and sun caps to be exact. You can find them easily at a variety of stores, from Michael's Crafts to Walmart to Dollar Tree.

A great color for grandsons AND granddaughters

This particular batch came from the Dollar Tree and I was thrilled to find packages with colors for girls and guys.

The grandkids picked their faves, grabbed some of the Crayola washable markers and started decorating away.
