Looking to Make ‘About Me’ Bags This Year?

If so, you’re in the right place! We’ve put together a fun little group of printable instructions and bag tags for you to use as your back-to-school All About Me Activity! This fun activity guides your students to introduce themselves to their classmates through the use of artifacts! The only tools you need are brown paper bags and a printable bag tag for each student.

All About Me Bag Ideas!

The All About Me Bag activity is a creative and fun way for students to introduce themselves to their classmates at the beginning of the school year. Each student is given a brown paper bag and a printable tag in this activity. They are instructed to fill the bag with artifacts – items that represent their interests, hobbies, family, favorite things, or anything else that they feel represents them. These items serve as conversation starters, helping students to share personal stories and details about their lives, which helps create a positive classroom community. This activity is a fun way for students to express themselves and an excellent icebreaker for the start of a new school year!

Need some ideas to give your students? Here are a few of our favorites!

  • A favorite book or bookmark.
  • A small toy or action figure that represents a hobby or interest.
  • A photo of their family or pets.
  • A drawing or artwork they’ve created.
    A favorite snack or candy.
  • A special souvenir from a memorable trip or vacation.
  • A favorite sports team’s memorabilia (like a keychain or wristband).
  • A musical instrument or a picture of one they play.
  • A list of their favorite movies or TV shows.
  • A small craft or DIY project they’re proud of making.
  • A certificate or award they’ve received.
  • A written list of their favorite hobbies or activities.
  • A ticket stub from a fun event they attended.
  • A photo of them engaging in a favorite activity, such as playing a sport or performing on stage.
