My son & I had the idea that we could make some kind of treat packet for his classmates at Christmas time. We finally saved enough tubes & this week we got to work! Here's what we came up with.
I had thought that I may want to do something a little more fancy with a cut out tag attached or something & then had second thoughts. Realistically, these are 7-9 year old kids who likely will just tear it open to get at the candy inside. :)
So, we made it look as special as we could without spending too much time on this project.
Here's what we used:
- small bags of candy
- toilet paper rolls or paper towel rolls cut smaller
- pretty Christmas paper
- string, yarn, twine, or heavy thread
I hope I'm not insulting your intelligence by describing this for you, since it was so simple.
We started by stuffing the bags of candy into the rolls.
Next, cut your paper into strips & adhere around the roll.
Lastly, loop the string around the tube several times & tie in a knot.
If your kids are in my son's class, please don't spoil the surprise, k? It was pretty easy & my little guy is excited to have treats that he helped make.
Are you making something for your kid's friends? What do you have planned? I'd love to know about it. Please leave me a link & I'll come check out your projects.
Enjoy your day!
