Matchbox Project #2

This project is wonderful for little rewards, as a party favor, or just because I Love You. Bigfoot has been getting up several times in the night to have us cover her, so we are trying to convince her to do it herself. You would think it would be the 2 year old waking us, but it is the 4 1/2 year old. She loves to find things under her pillow the next morning, so what a great way to reward her for not waking us in the night.

Teachers, use this idea for rewarding students for a great job done!

Parents, assist your child by cutting out the matchbox and putting it together. Have them decorate the outside wrap and assist in putting the wrap around the candy. I used Hershey Nuggets and the matchbox was designed to fit 2 of them, yummy yum yum. According to the Hershey's package there are about 36 nuggets per bag, you can do about 18 of these matchboxes per bag.

Let's get started. I used the same matchbox template from the prior blog so click here if you need it.

Print the template on card stock and cut on the solid lines, score on the dashes. Fold and glue accordingly to make the bottom of the matchbox. Cut another piece of card stock to wrap around the matchbox bottom at 2 1/4" x 4 1/2". Score on the long side at 1/2", 2", 2 1/2" and 4". Fold and glue the outside wrap. The paper for the wrap around the candy is 1" x 3 1/4"; wrap and glue at the bottom.

Have fun and decorate with your children. Here is the completed matchbox. I guess I could have used this as a great job in math, but at 4 1/2 years we don't have that subject yet.

I realize this project did not have any rubber stamping, but definitely incorporate it into your project along with sticker, yarn or confetti ~ whatever you have laying around the house. Have fun with your children, as they will keep you young. Thank you for visiting, Bigfoot & Pickle Face really appreciates any comments or suggestions you may have. Feel free to add your link of your matchbox project you have completed. Have a great week!
