Valentines day is here, and your little ones need something to drop off with their friends... preferably something cute and little and filled with candy. Here is the idea!
You can find little packs of matchboxes at the grocery store.. They usually come in packs of 10 and shouldn't run you more than $1.50 or so. (Dump the matches out and save them for your next blackout.) Cut a piece of paper 2" high (or the height of your matchbox) and about 4" long (enough to wrap all the way around), and used a bit of tape to secure it on the back.
Fill with candy (regular m and ms and candy corn will fit nicely), tuck in a little note, wrap with string if desired, and add a name tag or first initial. Then off to school!
