Need ideas

My 3.5 year old starts preschool next week. The school he is going to gives every student a plain canvas tote bag to use as their school bag, and the kids can decorate them at home however they'd like to make theirs unique.

Does anyone have any ideas of ways we could decorate the bag? Something that my son could handle doing on his own without turning the bag into a big mess. (I get that it will look like a kid decorated it, because duh, and I don't want to be overbearing or say it has to "look nice" but I would like to avoid a giant puddle of paint mixed into a grey sludge that I have to wipe off, kwim?)

I was also toying with the idea of potato stamp printing. Anyone try that with kids this young and have it work out?
