Little kids love carrying their stuff in their own bags! You can sew a kid-sized messenger bag using a free pattern from Emily at Nap Time Creations. The top is open (no flap) so it’s easy for them to get inside to get to their stuff. For things you want to keep safe and sound, there’s a zippered pocket on the front.
