Remember taking your lunch to school when you were a little kid? When you opened your lunchbox, was there a snack inside? I’m guessing there usually was a snack of some sort. Wouldn’t it have been awesome to open your lunchbox and have a really great and fun lunchbox snack? I think so. Today I’m going to show you how to easily jazz up your child’s lunchbox and bring a smile to their face while doing it.
The supplies you will need for this craft project are some fun decorative tape, plain wooden spoons (I got mine at a local party store), thick paper, a paint pen or a metallic paint with a thin brush and some clear tape. Of course you will also need some Hershey’s Ready to Eat Pudding as well.
I purchased my pudding at my local Walmart, in the Dairy aisle. It comes in chocolate and s’mores flavors. What can possibly be better than those flavors?! You know I’m a s’mores lover. I picked up two packages of each flavor and to be honest, my daughter ate half of a package of each one before I could make this craft. She is in love for sure. That’s because Hershey’s Ready to Eat Pudding is rich and creamy and made with real Hershey’s cocoa. So good.
These are the wooden spoons I bought in the party store. They are perfect for small hands, not heavy and not too big. Also a perfect canvas for decorating.
To jazz up the spoons, I wrapped them with decorative tape in three places and then I took my silver paint pen and made dots between each wrap of tape. I picked my grandkid’s favorite colors for the spoons. They will love them!
I measured the containers the pudding comes in and they measured 1 3/4 inches tall and 7 1/4 inches around, so I cut paper strips that were 1 3/4 inches by 7 3/4 inches. Then I put 2 strips of tape on each paper and used the paint pen to embellish the strips.
I attached a piece of clear tape on the container on opposite sides to hold the paper in place once I had it put together.
Next, I attached the ends of the paper strips, overlapping the ends about half an inch, and attached it with a clear strip of tape down the opening.
Finally, I slipped each paper over a Hershey’s Ready to Eat Pudding cup and matched the spoons to the correct cups. Won’t your kids be excited to have one of these fun snacks in their lunchbox?
My grandkids, and daughter, will love these snacks, either in their lunchbox or just anytime. The flavors sure are yummy too.
I was thinking about what to do with the empty containers the pudding comes in and thought it might be fun to make a little sorting game for my little grand daughter to play when she is here. I used some Mancala stones in yellow, red and blue colors. You could paint small rocks, use candies, or even marbles for the sorting.
I painted each container so she will know which containers to place each stone in when she is playing.
The Mancala stones are really the perfect size for this game. Big enough for tiny fingers and small enough to fit a lot of stones in each container.
I think she will have lots of fun with this while she is eating her treat, which she will really love. While I was painting these containers I was also thinking they would be the perfect size to plant seeds this spring so when it’s time to plant, they will be started already.
What do you think would be a great idea for these containers, after the pudding is gone? Leave me a comment below because I’m thinking we will have loads of them to re-use.
