This free Black History Month Printable is filled with facts about some of the most influential African American figures such as Martin Luther King Jr., Barack Obama, Shirley Chisholm, Maya Angelou, Malcolm X, George Washington Carver, Guion Bluford, and Harriet Tubman.

These bags provide the perfect opportunity for celebrating the amazing contributions that these individuals have made to history. Filling them up with Chips or bookmarks featuring inspiring quotes from African American leaders, images of civil rights activists, and small paperbacks about black inventors and artists will surely make it a memorable event!

They make perfect party favors for community events, schools, and local organizations’ events. They’re also great ways to start conversations with children about their heritage while also helping them learn more about the people who have made a difference in our world.

Supplies You’ll Need: Before we dive into the assembly process, let’s gather the supplies required for this exciting project:

  1. Position and Fold: Start by placing the printable label face down. Fold the left and right flaps until the back wording and images face up. This folding creates a crease, forming the back of your chip bag.
  2. Apply Adhesive: Use double-sided tape or hot glue to secure the right side of the label to the left side, overlapping the white section.
  3. Seal the Bottom: Seal the bottom of the bag closed to ensure your treats stay securely inside.
  4. Fill Your Bag: Now comes the fun part! Fill your treat bags with 1 oz chip bags or choose from a variety of items like bookmarks, small paperbacks about black inventors and artists, or chips featuring inspiring quotes.
  5. Close the Top: Seal the top of the bag using double-sided tape or hot glue.

Optional Step: Add Texture with a Paper Crimper: For a more realistic chip bag appearance, use a paper crimper to crimp the top and bottom of the bag.


Celebrating Black history doesn’t have to be limited to February; free printable treat bags are a fun way to promote education at any time of year!
