Yard or front porch luminarias can be created from a variety of materials, from tin cans to milk jugs. But the classic way to craft them includes three basic items: a small brown paper bag, tea light and sand.
Little kids can draw or color on the paper bags with their favorite Halloween theme. Pumpkins, bats and ghosts are just a few easy choices, as the shape isn't too intricate. Older kids can draw, stencil or experiment with cutting designs into the bags.
Fill each bag no more than halfway with sand and add a tea light to each. Line your walkway, porch, driveway or street with the bags and light each candle. Voila.
