We will be decorating cupcakes for mother's day so we were thinking of making boxes for them too.
Colorful cards, box template, scissors and glue or double sided tape for longer lasting.
Print and cut out few templates beforehand (or print the pattern onto the card to save some time). Separate children into smaller groups, give them at least one template per group and ask them to trace it onto their card. Then give them scissors to cut the template out. Advise them of how to put the box together and what to glue (or have double sided tape allready applied to the glue parts before they cut out the box). They can also decorate them with personalized name tag or sticker or drawing on it.
