I take no credit for coming up with these brilliant little favors. My extremely creative mother made these with me when I was in elementary school, long before Pinterest, Facebook or even the Internet was in very many homes. I remember the kids being so excited about them and I had so much fun helping make them. Well, now I’m old and have kids of my own to impress.
What You Need:
Empty paper towel/toilet paper holders
Decorative tape (I got mine at Dollar Tree),
Small Candy and/or Toys
I made these 4 with 1 paper towel holder & 1 toilet paper holder, so do the math with however many kids you are wanting to make them for and save up those rolls! Or have your family & friends save them for you too!
First, cut your paper towel rolls into 3rds. Get a piece of aluminum foil that will completely wrap around tube without excess. Use tape to adhere foil seam together.
Don’t forget to add your candy and toys! We put in a big heart Ring Pop. Pinch the ends together, giving them a little slack so that the foil is not too tight and tears. My decorative tape was paper so I was able to write on it. Then I let my 3 yr. old daughter decorate it with fun stickers.
These are so cheap & easy! We can’t wait for our Valentine’s Day tea party and neither can she!
Did you try this? How did they turn out? What did you fill yours with?
