Cookie Boxes

If you're hosting a holiday cookie exchange, your guests are going to need a way to bring home the delicious assortment of cookies they'll gather at your party.

Tools & Materials:

  • Kraft paper boxes (one per child; available at craft stores)
  • Construction paper in festive colors (red, green, white)
  • Scissors
  • Markers, crayons or other drawing tools
  • Glue sticks
  • Craft supplies such as pom-poms, glitter and sequins

Step-By-Step Instructions:

  1. Before the party, cut out some simple shapes from your construction paper, such as Christmas trees, snowmen, reindeer or bells.
  2. Arrange a crafting table with the boxes and the crafting materials in the middle. Let each child decorate their box with whatever strikes their imagination.
  3. Let kids fill the boxes with cookies from your cookie exchange before bringing them home.
